In the village of Shekta Siraswadi in India, people would walk long distances to get clean drinking water. In light of this, CFACT partnered with Pastor Ramesh Ghodke to fund the building of a well for clean water in the village itself.

This well project is not charity work. The well is intended to be self-sustaining with free market principles. It is up to Pastor Ghodke and the village residents as to whether to charge for future use of the well to raise funds for repairs and maintenance work.

The well project was made possible through CFACT’s Stewardship in Action program, an initiative that aims to sponsor projects that both steward the environment and promote human prosperity around the world.

You can watch the progression of the well project and the first use of it by residents here:
