Water percolation pits surrounding the house Since there is no enough free space on the school premises, the students created the pits around their homes. A few students took assistance from their parents, while some others completed the project on their own in phases. The pit created was of 3x2x2 dimensions. The students created the pits in the courtyard of their homes, in neighbours property, on the road side and in the forest. A student identified as Rachana created 9 pits all by herself while Harshita and Aishat Annifa have created 7 pits. Other students have created 3 or 4 pits each and have been supported by their parents. Meanwhile, the teacher Roshan Pinto has already installed rain water harvesting system to the open well at his home and is taking benefit of it. He is also encouraging the students.
