Dalit Community Struggles for Water

The residents of Ward number 12, Patan Block, Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh have been facing an acute water shortage for the past few years now. Community Correspondent, Veerender Ahirwar reports on the situation.

The community taps provide all but a fickle supply 2 times a day. People queue up to get as much as they can. Most return empty handed as the water has a habit of stopping abruptly.

Most residents of this ward are Dalits. Veerender who is also a part of this community tells us that caste based discrimination in the area continues to be a major problem for the people. He hopes that through his video he will be able to bring his people better facilities and get them their rights.

Call to Action: Please call Krishnashekhar Singh, Area President, Patan Block on 09425154164 and ask him to ensure that these families get water.

About the Partnership: The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network. The videos generated by the network will be able to highlight voices from the margins, providing skills to social communicators to provide advocacy tools to community based organisations.
