Potable water for 41,263 school children

Water borne diseases are 80% of our diseases and cause 33% deaths in our country*
To address this problem we give potable water to children of government schools and to underprivileged families of children of Zoya schools.
This we do by digging wells to 120-150 ft and installing hand pumps (simplest/most commonly used technology with least moving parts so there is little/no maintenance).

As of December 10 2023, we have installed 264 tube wells of which 226 are in government schools and 38 in underprivileged homes (of orphans/widows/etc). 41,263 children benefit from the program.
Expense, so far, is Rs 4.1 million given in 60 donations by generous individuals.

For example, Ms. Sohailia Yusuf’s contribution of  Rs 100,000.

Rs 18,000 to Rs 22,200 is the present cost of digging the tube well (120 feet) and installing a hand-pump.
