Project Details

  • Project Description:

    Water access is a luxury in villages in this area of South Asia. People may walk miles to fetch water for their daily needs. The solution could be as simple as replacing a broken pump handle ($10). 

    Water pumps in 1,200 villages are missing handles or have broken cylinders. The average person may not have access to clean or free public water. In some villages there is not even a single hand pump. You can provide a working water pump for every village. Your team can join a GPS team to help identify broken pumps.

  • Cultural Information:

    Hinduism prevails in this part of South Asia.  Buddhism, Jainism and Islam are also present. The culture is very conservative. Men and women are expected to dress modestly and western-style clothing is not appropriate for women. (need to dress like the locals).

  • Geographic Information:

    This are has about 102 million people. The climate is very hot during the summer months.

Pray that the local believers in this area would use this project to rapidly expand the Kingdom of God.

Pray for favor with local governmental officials both during and as the result of this project.

Pray that those who receive drinking water would have open hearts to listen and receive the living water of Jesus Christ.
