“Lilmuni, along with other women, had to go to the river to bring drinking water as they did not have any source of drinking water in their village. Walking 1 km, A couple of times per day for water was one challenge, but the bigger challenge they faced was during rainy season when river was full of water. This kind of situation had forced them to drink unsafe water. This had caused health problems in the past.
“After GHNI has give bore well, the women don’t have to go to river for water. More than that, they get safe drinking water near their home. Lilmuni with other women is very much thankful for GHNI. We have taught all the women about safe drinking water.

“Manu and Babujan are going through additional training so that they will be able to train the committee members. One of the things that is slowing us down is the teaching material. Right now, most of the materials are available in English. Some have been translated in Hindi. We have to do the translation of all the materials in Santali.”
