How A Bunch Of Students Are Convincing Villages Around Noida To Use Water Filtersby The Daily Eye Team November 16 2016, 11:59 am Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 37 secs
This is the story of two different communities in the National Capital Region (NCR) of Delhi. The villagers of Sadhopur village in Greater Noida were facing many health problems caused by drinking contaminated drinking water. At the same time, a community of potters in Uttam Nagar, Delhi, was looking for work that would not be seasonal. Enter Enactus SRCC (the Shri Ram College of Commerce chapter of Enactus), a college student-run not-for-profit organisation, which tied these two groups with complementary needs together through Project Asbah. Project Asbah’s mission is to provide clean potable water in rural areas like Sadhopur. In order to do this, the organisation helped the community of potters from Delhi manufacture clay-based Terafil water filters.
