Wells Of Tirupur, India
Tirupur, India is in many ways hostage to its own success. A major clothing and garment manufacturing center of India, tens of thousands remain without basic needs such as clean water. These are subjugated to “system” of slavery intrinsic to this industry that pays $4-$7 dollars per week, depending on whether you are a women/man and where one is in the processes of this type of manufacturing. Most in the West would call it “slave labor”. GHNI is now(7/’12) in the process of digging its first well in this neediest of locations. This water is available for not only home domestic needs, but will also be available for irrigation purposes also needed in these families for crops cultivation. Dan was there at the end of 2011 and personally witnessed these families in dire need of clean water.
