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!

Dear Supporters,

Due to the consecutive long weekends and also due to non-availability of parties from both sides, the commencement of work had to be delayed.

The lawyer reverted on 14th August and currently he's awaiting a set documents from New Ark Mission before he gives his legal clearance.

I've been told by T. Raja  that a few documents have been pending at government agencies since the past 6 months and it may take a longer period of time especially with the current delays due to elections etc.
I will discuss with him and make an informed decision on how to proceed.

*Interim we've identified another property closer to HOH and will evaluate borewell options there as well.

The contractor has visited the 1st site twice to gauge prospective execution. One of the subsequent visits had to be postponed because of the rains and non-accessibility by two wheeler.  

A geologist has been engaged for this project and he would be making a site visit the next week. The project should start immediately after that.

Thank you all for your continued support!
