A village where women had to walk 3-4 kms to fetch water every day and almost no water after March resulting in migration in search of work.
A 5HP Pump operated by a 7.5 KW Solar Panel was installed to pump the water over a distance of 1.4 kms to two raised tanks – one for water for household use and one to irrigate their fields.
A separate filter was used to supply purified water for drinking – thus reducing the incidence of water diseases.
Water would flow by gravity to 5 tanks constructed at different locations across the village – from where the villagers could draw water for domestic purposes.
17th Jan 2021 was not only a normal Lions Service project but a project which started with check dams built-in 2018-19 under the Governorship of PDG Lion Deepak Chaudhari. In that year as forecasted approx 50 such check dams were executed & today Mokhada District in Maharashtra doesn’t face water shortage instead the villagers approached Digambar Swaraj Foundation for advice again.
Lions were there then & even today also it was Lions who came to take up the challenge.
Lions Club of Tarapur along with CSR Partner Sumitomo Chemical agreed to work hand in hand along with the expertise of Digambar Swaraj Foundation for this water-lifting project.
Shraddha, CEO- Digambar Swaraj Foundation appreciated the efforts of Mr. Prakash Desai, Vice President of Sumitomo Chemical who generously contributed towards the project along with the Lions Club of Tarapur.
