The people of Rangpuri Pahadi push forward with their lives on the most modest of incomes. A family with three members working might bring in US$100 a month. Yet in their frustration, these people pooled their resources and, with some local advice, solved their own water problem. They collected enough money to have two wells drilled. They purchased a 530-gallon water storage tank, and stacks of small metal piping that looks like electrical conduit.
