Stories and Community Profile

This was the first of two projects being funded by Performers for Progress.  It will serve a village of 600 people.

When the Wells for Life team arrived they were met by a group of about 30 people, primarily the women and children of the village though there were some men present.  Most of the villagers had left for the fields as it was early afternoon by the time we arrived in this place.

We saw many of the places where they lived and their primary water tap which was unreliable.  Now thanks in large part to the generosity of Performers for Progress, these villagers are enjoying their very own protected water source.  This improved source will meet all of their water needs.

Partner Profile

Wells for Life® is seeking to address the problem in India one well
at a time, and to do so from a holistic perspective by first addressing
the physical needs of the individual and then their community. We are
seeking to accomplish this task through forming partnerships with other
organizations that share the same passion we do for meeting one of the
most basic needs: the need for water.

Wells for Life® continues to receive requests for water wells in
different rural villages and communities throughout India. It is our
vision to meet every viable request presented to us, and to do it in a
sustainable way with lasting impact. We seek to carry out our projects
with the wholehearted participation of the receiving community and to
work with the community. Taking ownership of the well project, they
will keep it a life giving source of water for years to come.

With each of our projects we utilize the expertise of Indian
professionals trained in engineering, hydrogeology, and construction as
well gain the help of the receiving community to carry out the project.
Furthermore, it is our goal to establish the location of each project
on property that will afford equal access to all those within the
village or community, regardless of one's faith or caste.

Finally, it is our hope that each project initiated will bring immediate relief and be a building block for future projects for all those we are in partnership with.
