The Ternekal Village Well

  • Population: 2,150 (as per 2010 Census)
  • Rate of Literacy: 41%
  • This village has no water by any river or tank
  • This clean water well is used by more than 550 people every day

This is a segregated village. Where we have put this water well is on the side where the high caste people have sent "scheduled caste" people. These people were previously called “untouchables”. The village occupies very hard ground and some part of the village is on a stone formation. In the summer it is very hot and dry and annually they only receive a little more than 1 inch per year. This water well has brought help and hope to these precious people.
