Some of you may have seen recently on the blog that we have started working with the charity Drop4drop. Drop4drop is a charity that strives to provide clean water for some of the poorest communities in Africa and India, as well as providing water all around the world in times of emergency. Drop4drop funds sustainable water solutions by employing local people and involving the community to create a feeling of ownership and pride. They also work with the locals to maintain the systems and to educate them around hygiene. Check out their website for more information on their projects and the good work they have done so far http://drop4drop.org
Some of the Drop4drop team recently visited India and were there to unveil the Chi well. The well is in a rural area of India where previously villages had to walk miles to find the nearest source of clean water.
The new well means that the villagers will save a huge amount of time in the day and will know that they have a reliable and clean source of water near their homes.
Here are some pictures of the locals at the unveiling of the Chi well.
