Several districts of West Bengal including Purulia have the worst experience of water scarcity due to overall climatic conditions and texture of soil. Water scarcity has also affected cultivation process and thus people are solely depending on rain water but again monsoon season is almost non-existent in the region.
In order to make things better for the children, District Primary Education Programme (DPEP) in league with Mandra Lions Club had taken initiative to install and erect 10 Force and Lift Pump to provide drinking water for the children of ten schools in the district of Purulia.
As a result of such selective intervention the schools under the project are now getting full access to safe drinking water as the basic necessity of day to day life of school children. The pump is running by manual techniques and thus doesn't need any electricity, motor mechanisms for its productivity.
