Puja, Lalita, and Varsha are siblings that live in the Hopardi village of Jodhpur district. Because their father passed away last year, their mother is devastated and worried about how she is going to care for the family. Puja, Lalita, and Varsha have been doing extra work to help their mother — the girls help with the housework and trek in scorching heat to collect water.
Because of the generous support of donors Ramesh Aggarwal and Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation their lives are about to change.
Their family will soon have their own rainwater harvesting tank, which will provide clean water for 9 months. In addition, the girls will each receive a bicycle, school supplies and tuition for school. Moreover, their family will receive training to setup a garden using the khadin method.
As a result, Puja can continue studying to become a Hindi teacher, and Lalita, who loves learning math, can pursue her passion for teaching math.
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with bio-sand filter for Puja, Lalita and Varsha’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled with pond water. This will enable the girls to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
