Visualized it, written about it, budgeted for it, and reported on it; but this was my first time actually being on site and seeing the drilling process for water. February was a great month to be in India again for two weeks!

It is a fascinating thing to watch not only the drilling process, but also the human activity going on around such an important “event” in the lives of the recipients. People were everywhere!

One such well in one village, can usually have the capacity to provide water for 150-300 people. One of our goals in GHNI is to provide the very best of both water “quality” and “quantity” sufficient for such a village as this in Jatapara, India.

Thanks to you who provide such financial backing, we in GHNI are able to bring not only this water source; but also the critical means of Transformational Community Development(TCD), that trains TCD Trainers to build self-sustainability into every project and process we commit to. This is your work! Thanks!
