Walk for Water

WALK FOR WATER – FUTURE IN OUR HANDS (FIOH) NORWAY

The walk for water campaign was conducted on 19th, February 1991 by RIDO. There were 37,000 women, cine field actress, foreigners, political leaders and school going children who walked about 4 Km from the edge of the Dharmapuri town and reached at the Collectorate.

The memorandum was submitted to the District collector to supply safe drinking water from The River Cauvery at Hogennakal to both Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri Districts.

This was one of the inspiring programmes that RIDO has ever conducted. The Government has taken initiative to implement the project with the support of Japanese Government.
