More than 600 families of Ithampadu village, near Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, have seen a new dawn thanks to our efforts in association with Hand In Hand India. Surveys revealed that health was a major problem for the villagers and the reason was their intake of impure water. Hence, the first step was to establish a RO plant that has reduced illnesses to a bare minimum and saved the womenfolk from having to walk miles to fetch drinking water. The RO plant is now being managed & maintained by a committee drawn from the villagers. The next initiative was to renovate the village school to provide the children with benches & desks, regular water and improved toilets including toilets for girls. The number of students are already rising.
