Ending travails of fetching water

The story of D. Gollahatti village

D. Gollahatti is a hamlet of the Doddi Golla community who are either landless or own marginal holdings. It is a remote village in Rolla area, about 175km from Anantapur. This is a hamlet in which women had to walk to faraway fields or tanks or open wells to fetch even drinking water. Men helped women, losing wages. Children were irregular to school, as they had to help their mothers fetch water. The Doddi Golla approached RDT for help. RDT dug one borewell. It yielded two inches of water. This was sufficient for the eighty Doddi Golla families living there. Needless to say, they are happy. Women are able to cook on time; children go to school on time and men also can go to their work.
