11-year-old Nirma, 8-year-old Sunita, and 6-year-old Surya are sisters who are all currently enrolled in school but will soon have to drop out to assist their mother in collecting water.
They all want to pursue their education and are currently taking classes in English, Hindi, Environmental Sciences, Math and Sanskrit. Sunita emphasized how much she loves Environmental Sciences.
However, thanks to donations from Shailesh Kotwal and The Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, all three sisters will now be able to complete their education and pursue their dream jobs. (Nirma is wearing a pink shirt, Sunita is wearing green, and Surya is wearing black.)
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Nirma, Sunita and Surya’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Nirma, Sunita and Surya to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Nirma, Sunita and Surya will each receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Nirma, Sunita and Surya’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.

Nirma, Sunita and Surya will be able to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water after the construction of their family’s rainwater harvesting tank in January 2018.
A progress update on Nirma, Sunita and Surya will be available in February 2018.
