THE ECO-POT PROJECT (2017 - PRESENT)
The Eco-Pot Project to build eco toilets was launched as a means to provide safe sanitation for women and girls. Our first two projects were launched in the Himalayas and Maharashtra, India.
PPF has built 40 toilets around the Gagas river basin in Uttarakhand, Himalayas and around 30 to be built in tribal Adivasi schools in the Grameen areas of Khed, Maharashtra, India.
The cost of 1 eco-toilet is 30,000 INR/ 416.48 USD/ 373.74 Euro. Thank you.
ROZGAAR PROJECT (2020)
Last March / April 2020 during the migrant crisis, we initiated the ROZGAAR PROJECT which managed to distribute 16 tonnes of 14-day ration kits worth USD 19,200 to 4016 jobless laborers / 1004 families in Pune thanks to generous and kind donors who came forward to support. The PPF team met with many other daily wage workers amongst whom we distributed masks, ration supplies and other essentials.
COVID RELIEF FUND
We are shaken and deeply affected by the tsunami that has been unleashed on us all by the recent Covid-19 wave. It has been a traumatic time for everyone in India as well as for our team on the ground in Pune, with half of us testing positive for the coronavirus. We are seeing the tragedy around us and must do something for our own people. Despite our soldiers being down, we have initiated the COVID RELIEF FUND after firsthand witnessing the oxygen shortages, lack of beds and traumatic state of affairs in Pune.
We are committed to buying oxygen concentrators and plugging them in with beds in as many “bastis” and “mohallas” around Pune as we can. An oxygen concentrator costing around INR 79,000/ USD 1,060 can provide around 5 liters of oxygen a minute, sufficient in many cases to help save a life while an ambulance arrives or the family searches for a bed.
This year, we aim to direct your donations from the COVID RELIEF FUND locally on-ground towards the purchase and provision of oxygen concentrators to those in urgent need.
Rain Water Harvesting, Reforestation, Tree Plantation.
Climate change and water scarcity is a reality and cause for concern for our planet and its people. PPF is engaged in rainwater harvesting, reforestation, afforestation and tree plantation initiatives in partnership with community-based organizations across India. Thank you.
