Project Pyas: Water Filters

March 30, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Adding to our on-going social project “pyas”, we distributed 10 water filters to Artisans and Staff of Noah’s Ark on 28th Jan 2012. We have received many requests for water filters from artisans and so far we have met almost half of the requests. Many requests keep coming to us but we have always tried to meet this demand for water filters.

Ms. Kathleen Campbell of TTV – USA visited us from 27th to 29th Jan 2012 and we used this opportunity to distribute the water filters by her. The artisans who received the water filters were:  Mohd Shahid (Brass and bell work) , Mod Shanawaj (Brass and aluminium casting) , Shanawaj Hussain (Brass and aluminium work) , Mohd Saleem (Brass and aluminium sheet work and platters) , Mohd Riyaz (Glass mosaic work) , Intizar Hussain (Recycle materials work) and The staff of Noah’s Ark were: Babboo (checker) , Bhupindra (checker) , Veer Singh (checker) , Jameel (repairer).

The total amount spent on these filter was around Rupees 25000 (US$ 500).

“We would like to thank you for your support by buying our beautiful handicrafts and we ensure you that we will continue to improve the living conditions of the marginalised population in the handicraft sector through our work.”
