Help a drought prone village get access to water

Help a drought prone village get access to water

Impact

Every monthly donation helps more villages get access to clean water

Gangadevi is a resident of Banshipura village in Sambhar, Jaipur district. She lives in a joint family of 20 members. As rainfall is very scant in the area, the wells and handpumps become dry in summers. Gangadevi and her children walk close to 5 km every day to fetch water.

While a few wells were available in the village, the well owners harassed the poor families. Gram Chetna educated them on the benefits of having a tank where they could collect rainwater and use it during summer. Gangadevi, being an SHG member herself came forward for construction of the tank at her house.

After the construction of the tank, Gangadevi's family and her neighbors are very happy. The women now use the time saved productively to earn more for their family.

Program Description

People in the rural areas of Rajasthan experience acute problem of inadequate and unclean drinking water. The area is highly drought-prone and there is little rainfall during the monsoons. The fluoride content in water is high which makes the water undrinkable.

A poor family unable to afford the expense of installing a bore well has to travel 5 km for a bucket of water. Gram Chetna Kendra through this initiative provides tanks to these poor families to store clean drinking water. The water tanks that are constructed can be used for storing safe drinking water. Groups of families come together for building and sharing the use of the tank.

Gram Chetna Kendra helps with money and educates them on safe storage of water. The program proposes to help about 250 families a year. When you donate to this program, you will help 5 families get access to potable water.
