Promise Hill Project is continuously updated on the progress of our water well project in Odisha, India, constructed by the folks on the ground at charity: water. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has most definitely slowed our project. However, we wait patiently for a completion date soon!
The most recent update from charity: water
“Building sustainable water projects require thoughtful and thorough planning, and we’re excited to share that India Gram Vikas’s progress is well underway.
Water resource assessments and feasibility studies have been completed for all systems, and water sources have been identified. Boreholes are being drilled, dug wells are being constructed, and the water towers are nearly complete. The pipeline that will soon bring clean and safe water directly to homes and schools is also being laid.
India was under nationwide lockdown from March 24 until May 31, 2020, and then entered a phased approach. This approach allowed states and districts to issue lockdowns in hotspot areas.
Odisha has been under several partial and total lockdowns since May 31, causing implementation delays due to the government mandate that most program activities stop during total lockdowns. While in-person meetings and training are still on hold, Gram Vikas has recently been able to continue construction and other program activities.”

Our first WATER PROJECT! Our first project in INDIA!
Thanks to a very special private donor, Promise Hill was able to fund our first water project, in India, through charity: water.
Why? Because clean, safe drinking water is a basic human right for all. Keep an eye out for updates over the next 21 months.
