Tribal Support – Drinking Water Wells
Over 10,000 tribal families are living in interior forest habitations of Bhadradri Kothagudem area in 149 habitations spread across 60kms radius. Many of these tribals (Gond Adivasis) had migrated from Chhattisgarh over last 30 to 40 years. While 70 to 80 hamlets are on the road itself, the remaining are in interior areas and don’t have any road connectivity, and in around 40 to 50 hamlets, water shortage is the biggest issue.
The summer only made things worse as temperatures across northern Telangana will shoot up. “In these hamlets, adivasis have no access to drinking water and have to dig at dried up streams. They dig for around four to five feet before some water oozes out from the ground. But it yields only little water. Rural Hope Foundation has taken up an initiative to dig drinking water wells for these tribal hamlets to provide safe drinking water through out the year.
