Dhanvati is 7 years old and lives with her parents and sisters in the Mandla Khurd village in the Jodhpur district of India. Dhanvati’s family lives in a small one room home because her parents earn $ 2 per day as laborers on a peanut farm.
Dhanvati’s sisters wake up at 5:00 am and spend their day collecting water for their family. Dhanavati would have also followed this path as she grows older. But now, thanks to the generous support of donors, Hyatt Family Foundation and The Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, Dhanvati and her sisters will soon change for the better.
Dhanvati’s parents will be able to send all their daughters to school and increase their income through sustainable farming methods.
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Dhanvati’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Dhanvati to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Dhanvati will each receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Dhanvati’s family will receive training to setup a garden using Khadin cultivation. *
* A Khadin is an earthen bund that contains rainwater within an agricultural area. A khadin is one of the most effective and sustainable methods for promoting crop growth in water-scarce regions.
