The women of Dautala of Dilasaini-2 have mortgaged their ornaments to fund a drinking water and irrigation project in the village after they did not get support from the government and other organizations. The villagers collected Rs. 2,00,000 from 20 households. [...] The villagers have laid 2 km pipes from the source to the reservoir but they do not have sufficient pipes to connect the reservoir with the village. They have requested the District Development Committee to provide pipes and other materials to bring water to the village.
