During October, we organized two voluntary work programmes (voluntary community work). On October 16, Amit and Sampath led a team of 6 people in a programme to clear wild growth around a well in Samaiya. Due to heavy rains, wild growth had proliferated around the well and water was stagnating. Access to the well was also difficult. Our team removed the wild growth. The participants included 2 women and 4 unemployed youths from the village.
