Project Description

As one travel to the interiors of Gaya district in Bihar, amidst acres of agriculture land lies a small village called Zindapur. Home to 56 families, a majority of the community members are daily wage labourers, who either work at the brick factory nearby or at the farmlands owned by affluent landowners. Their meagre income is heavily dependent on the pretext of if they manage to get work, thereby trapping them in a vicious circle of poverty.A community struggling with poverty, basic facilities like clean water and decent toilets were undoubtedly not available at every household nor were a priority.
However, today each household in the community has access to clean water through a mini piped water supply scheme. With a submersible boring and a water storage tank, water is made available to the community members. A person in-charge from within the community is responsible to switch the water motor on thrice a day. Long queues at the water point, arguments and fights with each other to collect water first, and the ordeal of spending hours at the water point every day are long-gone practices for Zindapur village.
