10-year-old Manju starts her day at 5:00 am helping her mother bring water from a location several kilometers away back to their family. Afterwards, she helps her mother feed their goats.
Because Manju has a copious amount of housework, she can only go to school after all her work has been completed, so she cannot attend school on a regular basis.
Thanks to the generous support of donors Varshney Family Foundation and Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, Manju will be able to pursue her dreams.
A new rainawter harvesting tank is under construction for Manju’s family. After the tank has been completed in January 2018, Manju will have time to devote to her education — she loves studying and aspires to complete her schooling, pursue college, and become a nurse or a teacher. In addition, Manju will be able to cycle to school and will receive school supplies and tuition for school fees.
Finally, Manju’s family will be able to grow vegetables using the khadin method; which uses rainwater for agriculture. As a result, Manu’s family will have nutritious food and be able to earn additional income.
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Manju’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Manju to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Manju will receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Manju’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.
