The Water Project

While reading the news recently I chanced upon an article and decided to do something to help this organisation.

This initiative is to raise funds for New Ark Mission of India (Home Of Hope), Bangalore and help solve their water problem that is affecting over 700 people housed in this mission. HOH is a homeless shelter set up 20 years ago by a man commonly called 'Auto Raja' who helps the destitutes in Bangalore.

During a meeting with Mr T Raja, he shared the struggle he faced financially on a monthly basis because of lack of water. The borewell at this mission dried up and he's spending approximately Rupees 40000 a month buying water. He would be highly obliged if we could help fund him dig a borewell. 
The mission has another property located near Bagalur lake, and had already commenced digging a borewell but unfortunately had to stop at a depth of 400 feet because of lack of funds. This new borewell should also be able to sustain his desire of accommodating 1000 people in the near future. 

His immediate need of the hour is to restart the digging of the borewell that would help the Homeless Shelter with water. 

I'm looking at raising 3 lakhs for this project

Let's help him so that he may continue helping others!

Update 10 - TWP

Dear Donors,

Post my 9th update on 13th September, we commenced work to build an overhead tank (OT) for the collection of water from the completed borewell.

I'm attaching photos with dates to have a progressive understanding on the timeline of work. We experienced delays due to indecisiveness from various quarters but they eventually smoothened out and work moved ahead steadily. The heavy rain showers we all have experienced weren't helping either.

The good news is that we got the KEB connection along with all clearances last week and need this OT up to install the KEB connection / switch box.

Photos & their timeline
September 16th purchase and delivery of material at site.

September 17 - 28td, digging for pillar foundation. There were a few delays caused by the rainstorms and other decisive factors but the pits were eventually dug according to specific requirements of placement of the pillars.

Even hired Sheru the watch dog to guard our material  :)

October 5th - Raising of the pillars for an overhead tank.

October 12th - pillars are almost completed.

Construction of the body of the OT will commence shortly and updates will follow suit.
