Hard work and dedication helps Someshwar come out with flying color

Devachiwadi is a small village in Pune, Maharasthra where access to safe drinking water was a concern. It was addressed when Apollo tyres under its CSR initiative adopted this village and provided round the clock access to affordable and safe drinking water to these villages. The intervention was received well amongst the community.

Very close to the purification plant about 50 meters across the location, Someshwar lived in his humble abode with his parents and cattle. During this time, Someshwar was finishing his graduation who was excited to see such a change in his village. He enthusiastically became the operator for running the purification plant and ATM at the same time continuing his studies.

He has been dedicatedly working to operate the plant timely so villagers can take safe drinking water anytime from the ATM. He realized it was important for the plant premises to be neat and tidy at all times. With his efforts and presence of mind, the plant is now surrounded by green lush plantation within 1.5years of its start. The villagers would happily come to take water from the plant along with admiring the greenery around. About 134 households are already taking water from the atm. Till date, about 358180.60 Ltrs have been served by Someshwar and his family to the community.

At times when he is out for work, his family operates the plant to ensure Safe Drinking water is available to community round-the-clock.  The income earned helped him fund his studies so he completed his graduation that had the blessings of the community.  It clearly shows the sense of responsibility he has for his community along with his own progress.

Such heroes make a difference! Let us join the movement!
