Please note that Kavita and sisters were not at home at the time this picture was taken.
Because her father was injured in an accident and she is the eldest of four siblings, 9-year-old Kavita helps her mother to collect water.
This means she must walk very far distances in hot desert winds and scorching summer heat. Because Kavita has to help her mother, she is not able to go to her classes on a regular basis.
Kavita is very keen to complete her education and then pursue college. Thanks to the generous support of Mahendra Agrawal, Neeti Agrawal and the Richa and Atul Aggarwal Foundation her future is looking brighter. Her family will soon have a rainwater harvesting tank to provide clean water. In addition, they will have a vegetable garden to provide more nutritious food and income.
Kavita is very excited about going to school full-time!
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Kavita’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Kavita to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Kavita will receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Kavita’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.
