Stories and Community Profile

This new well serves a village of about 650 people, mostly
agricultural laborers.   Before this well was installed they did not
have a protected source of water.  The well in use was unreliable and
filled with garbage (you can see pictures of it below).  Today, thanks
to the generosity of individual donors to The Water Project, these
families are enjoying clean and safe drinking water.

Our implementing partner noted about their visit,

“Arriving at this place and experiencing the fireworks
and the celebration was a tad overwhelming but when you consider what
they had previously to what exists now, it’s no wonder they were
excited to have us and show off their new water source.”

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.
