VV-PACS Correspondent Arti follows the women residents of Bhatiyagarh as they make their daily trips to fetch water for their families.
On an average the women walk around one and a half kilometres to get to the hand pump in the neighbouring settlement. On some days they make the trip 10 times to get enough water.
Call to Action:
Please call Mr OP Dubey, officer at the Public Health Engineering Department on 09617227557 and ask him to ensure that ward no. 19 Bhatiyagarh gets a water connection immediately.
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 organizations.
If not for the intervention by our community correspondent, the poor villagers would have continued paying taxes for a land they didn't own.
Millions of lives were directly dependent on the once flourishing Apple farming industry of Kashmir.
