Anandpura Basti Ward 62 is located in Bhopal.  There was a lot of problem regarding water in the township.

Women had to go to collect the water far away 1 kilometer from the township.  A family had a private borewell where all the people used to go to get water.  All of them could not get sufficient amount of water equally, they had to face many difficulties. And because of this women could not go to work.

In view of these problems, the women of Anandpura colony formed the Mahila Samiti and decided to work on water problems in the township.

The private family that had a borewell made it public for the whole township, then the women laid the pipeline in the entire township and put up stand posts at 16 places where there are about 41 points from where the water is being collected.

Tarannum, was one of the initiator, carrying a very positive mindset.  She want her daughters to have a proper education and become a self sufficient woman in future.   Apart from her daily family routine, she is taking care of all the communities related to water.  An woman who carries a very positive and futuristic thought process.

Women are happy now because they solved the water problem, which was solved by the people of the colony.  The women united together and completed it with public participation. Now the people of the township are happy because they have enough water near their house.  Women are not only getting water, the members of this women's committee are also working on water quality, where they check the water through PK Feel Testing Kit. Anandpura, being the rocky and hilly area, women used to face a lot of challenges, but they searched for the solutions and solve it and these women developed an ideal process and created an example for all the people on water related issue.
