Keeripathy is a small tribal village/hamlet in Sholayur Panchayat inhabited by 30 families.Drinking water has been a major problem in the village. The village saw outward migration of several families due to this problem. Several government and non-government initiatives failed due to lack of a community approach. SVMM has taken up the challenge and started to implement the community drinking water project in Keeripathi in April 2021. A borewell was dug on 29-April-2021. The project is supported by Kerala Hindus of North America.The project is expected to be completed in July 2021.
