Mullana Village is a rural village in Kaithal district in Haryana region, North India. People work as farmers and tend to their animals, mostly cows. The village does have a bore well, but the water is very contaminated. People do not use this water source for drinking, but only for household needs because many people became sick and children have died. The common diseases noted in this village are skin diseases, dengue fever and cholera. Normally, people walk to other villages for water, carrying water in cans and in bottles for drinking. It is about 1.25 miles distance to the next village. Our well is going to be a very deep well, beyond the possibility of contamination due to sewage and will provide a sustainable clean water source. Access to the well will be free to all in the community.

Narvana Village is a rural village located in Jind district of Haryana state in North India. It is a very poverty-stricken village where people suffer to meet their basic needs. The roads are terrible and there is no access to any government/public transportation. They have a primary school, but no higher education. The next closest school is 15 miles away. It is common for children to stop their education when they finish primary school. People tend their animals, mostly buffalos, and farm. They did use a pond as a water source for their animals and cultivation, but that pond is almost completely dried up. Many people have already sold their animals and stopped farming due to the lack of water. A small, shallow bore well exists in the village for drinking water, but it is not nearly deep enough to be a sustainable source of safe, clean water.  Currently, villagers walk one to two miles to the next village to collect water from a water tank. Our well is going to be much deeper, beyond the possibility of contamination due to sewage and will provide a sustainable clean water source. The well will be free to all in the community to use.  Common diseases are skin diseases, dengue fever and cholera.

  The $3,000 project was made possible through the generosity of A couple of World Changers and a match from ilw.
