BHUBANESWAR: In a noble initiative, the ODM Educational Group has provided succour to more than 500 families of two tribal villages, situated on the outskirts of the Capital City, who were facing acute drinking water scarcity.

The two villages are mostly inhabited by tribals. In summer every year, the existing tube wells go dry because of groundwater depletion. Residents of these villagers are forced to travel more than three km every day to fetch drinking water.
