The support The Palpa Trust has received has given many schools better facilities, improved teachers' lives, given the chance of education to many children through scholarships and provision of school uniform. In addition much is achieved by the exchange of ideas with western visitors and it is advantageous for the students to hear English spoken by those for whom it is their mother tongue.
The successful drinking water projects have brought this vital ingredient to life to many households and it is usually women who benefit most from this. Theirs was the task of collecting water which sometimes took as much as one and a half hours for one journey.
In terms of medical help the support from The Trust is essential. Medical care in rural areas is spasmodic and even where access to the local hospital is possible financial help is required. No treatment takes place without pay so in some cases property is sold in exchange for treatment. The Palpa Trust tries to step in to prevent such dire, permanently detrimental actions being taken.
