Binauridih Community is located in the Bilaspur District of the Chhattisgarh state of India. Although Bilaspur city is the headquarters of the District, Binauridih lies over 30 miles from the city and is a rural community. A majority of the community members are uneducated and rely upon agriculture and day labor for income.
While implementing the bore well, a team of social workers provided awareness classes to the villagers regarding sanitation, importance of preserving water and eco-conservation. The training was specifically useful for the children. Training included specific attention to the importance of hand washing in the wake of the global pandemic.
Water, the most essential life resource, is a far cry for many. Villagers in the Chhattisgarh state travel miles on a daily basis to get water for drinking and for other needs. During summer it is too difficult to fetch water due to scorching heat.
Prior to constructing this bore well, there was no hand pump in the village. A public well in the village once existed, but had dried up and was no longer functional. Community members traveled long distances to fetch water through extreme conditions.
Now, because of your generosity, a new source of pure, fresh water is available that will affect the health and wellbeing of families in Binauridih for generations to come!
The Binauridih Community thanks you for your generous gift!
