NJSI has started a project of putting 5 km drinking water pipeline for the Chapadi village in Ramechap district. This is one of the worst drought affected areas of Ramechap. The project will give benefit to 34 households and a primary school catering to 67 children. The people have been collaborating with their labour for putting the pipe. More than half of the distance is already covered the rest is waiting for the harvesting to be over since the pipe line has to go through some cultivated land.
