Pyaas foundation, a NGO of like minded people to provide drinking water to the poor in villages adjoining Belagavi did a phenomenal work last year single handedly providing drinking water to 8000-people everyday for three months and then followed this up with a lake rejuvenation in Prabhu nagar which is 4000 sq Ft with a depth of 40 feet. Even now the Lake is full to its brim in February which is a sigh of relief to the villagers due to which the ground water level in the village has seen a dramatic increase.
The government estimate for this lake was Rs.15,00,000 but Pyaas Foundation did the work in almost half that cost. This was possible because of some generous donations and support and they were able to plant some 3800 trees all over Belagavi .
PYAAS Foundation, has announced its first project for this year that’s the completion of the Sulga lake project.
The work will start in second week of Feb and will be at an estimated cost of around eight lakhs. We are searching for donors as at present they are falling short of funds and are exploring funding options.
The Pyaas Foundation has been registered with under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act 1960.
