India: Alstom Eco-village


Fighting poor hygienic conditions in Durgapur thanks to clean wells, energy access and a sanitation unit.

47 families (250 people) live in Mol-Danga without having access to a drainage system, adequate water or street lighting. They’re suffering from malnutrition and the lack of educational and health centres.

This project developed a comprehensive programme including the creation of one low cost sanitation unit for each family, 4 bore wells for clean water supply, the installation of 10 solar lights, a hall for children primary education and equipment for dish making from sal leaf.

This will improve the hygienic conditions of the local community.
