AWCH's nomination for the Hazarwadi Open Well won a FAWCO Development Grant of $4500 for the Integrated Tribal and Watershed Development Programme (ITWDP) to finance the construction of an open well in a rural hamlet of 14 tribal families in Maharashtra, India.
AWCH members and friends came together on July 17 for an inspiring evening with Robert d' Costa, director of the ITWDP. We were very surprised but very pleased to learn that the construction of the well has been completed. This open well is concrete-lined well (23x23 feet, depth 35 feet, with a pump and pipeline) that will provide an adequate water supply throughout the year and allow irrigation of a second crop sold for income.
