is] a backward village
located in the Pullambadi block of Trichy district where 55 community
with a total population of 200. Most of them live in tiled houses and
some live
in mud walled thatched houses. They are all daily wage earners taking up
construction laborer and road laying etc. There have no protected
water facility in their village. There is one deep bore well cum hand
which was provided by the government some years ago in the village now
failed and not in use.

is only
one public tap in their street but they could not have access to water
of the power cut by the Electricity Board often and as most of the time
it is
dry. Their only source of water is from the public tap. They draw water
from the
open wells which are unprotected. By consuming unprotected
drinking water, they suffer from water diseases like diarrhea and
Typhoid etc.  A deep bore well cum hand pump can
be an ideal
solution to fulfill their drinking water need. The chairman of
Pullambadi Union
has appealed DPWA to install a deep bore well cum hand pump in their

Well Dedication Report

In this village of 200, the inhabitants are living in tiled and mud-thatched houses. People earn daily wages working construction. With a public tap often running dry and of no use without electricity and a government installed bore well no longer working, the people have no access to clean drinking water.

Arriving at this village, it was clear to see that both the men and women were grateful for the new hand pump. Thanks to the donation of those at Monogram Communication Services, these villages will never again need to rely on electricity and or unprotected open wells. They can enjoy twenty four-seven access to clean water locally.

Project Type

Abundant water is often right under our feet! Beneath the Earth’s surface, rivers called aquifers flow through layers of sediment and rock, providing a constant supply of safe water. For borehole wells, we drill deep into the earth, allowing us to access this water which is naturally filtered and protected from sources of contamination at the surface level. First, we decide where to drill by surveying the area and determining where aquifers are likely to sit. To reach the underground water, our drill rigs plunge through meters (sometimes even hundreds of meters!) of soil, silt, rock, and more. Once the drill finds water, we build a well platform and attach a hand pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around five gallons of water per minute! Learn more here!
