During the first phase (2008) BCT constructed 200 Household Tanks and repaired 7 Community Tanks in 15 villages of Churu. In the second phase (2009-10) 750 Household Tanks (300 for BPL families) were constructed and 33 Community Tanks were refurbished in 55 villages of Churu. Local masons were also trained through this program

Sanitation Program

In 1984, BCT initiated efforts in the villages of Rajgarh Block (Churu district) with the construction of 100 Low cost latrines (LCLs) in individual houses, with 10% contribution from the beneficiaries. This has been transformed into a mass movement which led to the construction of more than 40000 Low Cost Latrines (LCLs) in the villages of Churu and its adjoining districts.
