Project Water Supply Well "Water is Life"

Today, women and girls living in rural areas in India still have to walk for long distances and hours in order to get clean drinking water for their families. Almost 90 percent of all diarrheal diseases are caused by contaminated water and a lack of hygiene. Recurring intestinal infections is the most common cause of death of children under the age of five years.


With Inner Wheel Mumbai we support the construction of water wells. Doing so we support 40 rural village communities and more than 3000 villagers who do not get support by governmental authorities, with clean and running water. We are proud to say that the concerned women and girls are very grateful that the now-in-place wells give them more freedom and time for school and vocational education.
