Update on "Our" Project Hazarwadi Open Well—An Evening with Robert d'Costa
Friday, August 17 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM
Robert is the director of the Integrated Tribal and Watershed Development Programme (ITWDP), which has been working in Maharashtra, India, for years to better the economic situation and alleviate the extreme poverty of the tribes inhabiting this region. AWCH has been supporting ITWDP since 2011, when we joined two other German clubs to support the development of the village Paregaon Khurd. This year, our nomination to support ITWDP won the FAWCO Development Grant in the category Environment. The $4,500 grant will pay for the construction of the Hazarwadi Open Well in a desertified area of Maharashtra. This well will provide water for 14 families throughout the year.
Robert will give us an update on the progress of the Hazarwadi Open Well and ITWDP. This will be an informal evening with refreshments and a light Indian dinner.
We hope you can join us for a fun and informative evening! Partners and friends are welcome!
