WORLD WATER DAY
22nd March 2017
On this international day of water, we are writing this report to inform and to alert you about the pathetic situation which prevails in Tamil Nadu, especially in our district of Tiruvannamalai. We are suffering from a severe drought and water problems, the source of life.
Please, forward our website address around you: www.popeindia.org
At present, the drought affects the entire economy and local populations as the main activity of Tamil Nadu is agriculture.
POPE is directly affected by the lack of water, since the ground waters resources are dry, our wells are empty and we have to give drinking water to our children and provide them with water for the kitchen and the toilet.
We are therefore obliged to order water trucks, which the cost is high, so that is significantly expensive.
Thank you for your help.
Director of POPE
The well of Suvasam is completely empty.
An important milestone in the history of POPE
KALVARAYAN HILLS TRIBES
16th March 2017
Kalvarayan Hills is covering Tiruvannamalai, Villupuram and Salem Districts, with around 100.000 population. To facilitate the co-cordination of our tribal programmes we fixed an office (one room) on rental basis. The office building is strategically located closed to the Karumanthurai Bus stand, which is giving easy access for the village tribal.
Around 20 participants (tribal leaders, volunteers, women activists, and social workers participated in the programme). Mr. Jothimani, Co-ordinator of POPE-TIDE Vellimalai (Villupuram District) has given the vote of thanks.
