Situation

We take water for granted. Life is vastly different for families in the isolated villages of Barmer, Rajasthan where there is a deepening water crisis. These villages are in one of the most arid zones in India. Women and girls spend a third of their lifetime making the perilous daily search for water in unbearable heat. Burdened by a 20kg pot, it is a back-breaking daily struggle. No time to earn a living. No freedom to go to school. No escape from illness. No way out of the poverty trap.

Solution

With your help we can help these forgotten families take the first step out of poverty. Together with the community we will build 42 life-saving roof rainwater harvesting systems on homes to capture the precious monsoon rains and store in individual tanks providing year-round drinking water. Your support will have a transformational impact on the village future. Women will be healthier and free to work. Girls will have the freedom to gain an education and the chance of a better future.
