As the global temperature is increasing day by day, the problems related to usable water are also increasing. Same problems raised in some villages near Mulshi Taluka in Pune, as those villages are placed on steep slopes of Sahyadris. Because the water runoff rate is very high, water storage is not possible in that area.
TERRE Policy Centre is constructing 3 wells in Pimpri, Limbarwadi and Susale village which will be serving more than 1050 people and 700 pets.
The polulation of the villages Pimpri, Limbarwadi and Susale is around 250, 450 and 400 with the no of pets 200, 250 and 200 consequently. Being a village place, the main occupations for the localites is Farming and Poultry. Therefore they need the water supply regularly and on large scale and also in the much easier way.
Now, as the well construction will get completed, people (mostly ladies) will not have to roam around or have to walk miles for water every day. They can utilize these efforts towards their other work. We are hoping to see better results through these well construction.

Light For Brilliance
A project dedicated to maximum utilisation of renewable or alternative sources of energy to light up lives of millions of families for whom darkness is an everyday reality. TERRE Policy Centre has embarked on a mission to distribute solar lamps of 0.5Watts in rural areas of the country where electricity is scarce. These lamps are pre-installed with solar panels which get charged on exposure to the sun. Leaving them out the entire day will ensure a light supply for no less than 8 hours.
How can you contribute?
Each lamp costs INR 250. The scheme “One for One” proposed by TERRE states that an individual contribution of a minimum of 2 lamps i.e. INR 500 will ensure one lamp is given to the contributor and the other is donated to the target group. It is mandatory to buy a minimum of two lamps.
