More recent press coverage for The Water Project



Thank you all so much for the support towards the Water Project! The more we understand the needs of this Water project from both HOH and experts in this field, we believe that there is a possibility that most, if not all the funds collected till date would be required to facilitate a replenishing water supply solution and help eradicate the water woes that the mission has been facing for the past 4 years. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you all so much for the support towards the Water Project! We have raised Rs 10 lakhs. Contributions over this will be used for the running of the Home, specifically going towards the food needs of the inhabitants. Raja feeds 720 people three times a day. The food expenses of the Home come to over Rs 11 lakhs per month. 
Help the Home of Hope support it's inhabitants!

The Water Project: Phase 1
The mission has a property located near a 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 re-digging of the borewell should be able to sustain their 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 11 - TWP

Dear Donors,

The work on the Over-Head Tank has been progressing and is nearing completion. We've had lots of delays with the setting and drying of cement because of the massive rains, but were able to finally get them done.

3rd week of October, 2017

Once the OHT is complete, the electricity board can be connected after inspection by officials. We'll begin work on rain water harvest recharge pit shortly at this same site to enable recharge of this borewell. Subsequently we need to check if piping and casing is required for the borewell after using a camera to probe and check the where the well was dug. If none of those are required, we would install a motor and should have this part of the project completed entirely by the 10th of November. (assuming there are no other delays).

POA next stage:
We've also procured material for Rain Water Harvest for the three different spaces that belong to the HOH shelter and work will commence by November 7th at these existing homes. First at the gents ward and later at women's & children's section. Our current plan is to build a sump at the men's ward which has the maximum flow of water during rains.

If we're blessed with rains as we had this year, this should bring them some respite in their water bills.

Thank you all and God bless.
