People of Chandrapuri and Mathkhani villages in Uttarakhand face acute water shortage this summer as many natural water bodies in the state have dried up. This has largely affected the women in the village as they are the one who run the household errands and walk kilometers to fetch water for their family members.
Recognizing water as a fundamental right, the women participating in AMMACHI Labs’ WE:CSDP program in Chandrapuri and Mathkhani villages, took it upon themselves to approach their Gram Pradhan (Village Head) for an immediate solution. Yesterday, the women approached the Gram Pradhan and submitted a petition for water supply and a water tank for their villages. As per the directions of Village Pradhan, the women are planning to meet with the Block Development Officer for further follow up.
