- Statistically speaking, the number of installed deep tube-wells might be enough to serve the people of a particular area. But since most of these tube-wells have been installed into the houses of local influential, poor people don’t have access to it. The highly capable community mobilizers of the WATSAN project have been able to overcome this corrupted outlook by maintaining a healthy understanding with the local political leaders. WATSAN project have successfully installed deep tube-wells into the houses of the underprivileged, moreover, due to this healthy relationship, sometimes the Chairman and Members help resolve issues with the installation.
