Community Safe Drinking Water (Raninagar, Jalpaiguri)
Projects on Healthy Living: Safe & clean drinking water for livelihood promotion.
Groundwater in the industrial area of North Bengal is contaminated due to industrial discharge and also due to rain water. The people in the areas walk long distances to collect water for drinking and cooking from the hand pump and open well. Thus, they are forced to use any water that is available even if it is contaminated. Consequently, most often hit by water borne epidemics of jaundice, cholera or gastroenteritis.
After discussion and consent of the local panchayat for the benefit of surrounding local households, selected community bore well are being constructed at Barua Para.. After its completion around 100 households of the area will be benefitted from this.
