Water and Sanitation
Water and Sanitation


The Human Body is made up of almost 70% water, so by definition access to clean drinking water is a necessity of life. Drinking of contaminated or dirtywater leads to many water borne diseases such as Cholera, Dysentery, Typhoid, Hepatitis A etc. Our goal is to provide access to clean drinking water with applied engineering and technology in rural areas so that it helps to save lives of people as unsafe drinking water causes illness and in some cases death as well. We ensure that we provide clean drinking water to the helpless people dwelling on the streets under our Initiative:SERVE WATER TO THIRSTY which is very important for good hygienic life.

We have planned to preserve, protect and revive the natural water spring sources with the help of awareness, planting trees at the source of the spring and rainwater harvesting. We are also planning to promote technology with renewable energy to pump water from downhill sources to the villages which are above the water sources for easy access of water for daily use.

As far as sanitation is concerned, people are least aware of basic hygiene and about the significance for a healthy life in Kalimpong and its adjoining area. Sanitation is directly linked to the health of human beings and awareness of it can prevent the diseases related to it. Poor sanitation is one of the major cause of some diseases in our place. We will be the fillip to support and execute the Swachh Bharat Mission to attain Open Defecation Free India and eradication of Manual Scavenging.
