[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Making a water project sustainable has many components. One of the primary concerns is the physical maintenance of the water pumps themselves.

This short film, shot in December 2009, shows the women of the water committee in Gangadarpur, India performing routine maintenance on their tubewell pump.
