from the field: 1,350 students, one island… one well.

Blog Home | | from the field


Feb. 2, 2010 – A couple of days ago, I traveled with our partners Water for People to the island of Patharprotima in West Bengal, India. They had identified several schools without enough clean water or toilets and wanted our help. The school you see in the video had 1,350 students attending and only one well. They also had a few broken-down toilets. A tube well should serve about 250 people, not 1,350 students.
