Tesco partners with Rotary Bengaluru to launch clean water programme

Expected to impact over 10,000 lives in rural Bengaluru BENGALURU: Tesco in Bengaluru, in partnership with Rotary Bangalore Whitefield Central, today announced the inauguration of its community-based clean water programme in Naganayakanakote, a village on the outskirts of Bengaluru city.
This initiative began in 2017 and is now giving the villagers access to clean drinking water.
The project is expected to impact 10,000 lives in the Naganayakanakote village and surrounding areas.
This initiative assures access to clean and safe drinking water as a key focus area for the village.
Through community water plants, under-served communities will gain ready access to high-quality potable water, and meet or exceed World Health Organisation (WHO) standards and Indian IS1 0500 standards for drinking water.
For Tesco in Bengaluru, every little step makes a big difference.
Our multi-stakeholder programme helps us spread the right awareness and impacts the economic health, education and productivity levels of households in the community and its surrounding areas.
The need of the hour is clean drinking water that is affordable for all, and thus leads to long-term sustainability; Tesco in Bengaluru is helping us drive this cause further.’’ The Naganayakanakote village in Bengaluru is surrounded by many larger villages such as Doddadunnasandra, Samethanahalli, Muthkur, Muthasandra, Anugondanahalli and a few smaller villages as well.
The programme also aims to facilitate distribution from the Naganayakanakote hub to these villages for clean water access.
