Radha, Kiran, and Mamta live with their parents and siblings in the Kushlawa village in the Jodhpur district.
Radha and Kiran, who are 12 and 10 years old, wake up early to help their mother collect water. All three siblings love studying Hindi and always make sure they study in the evening or one or two hours. Their mother, Panchi Devi, emphasized wanting her daughters to attend college and get good jobs to support themselves.
With the donation from the The Nipa and Prashant Patel Family Charitable Foundation and Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, they will able to fulfill their mother’s wishes and also fulfill their own aspirations to be nurses.
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Radha’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Radha to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water. The tank will have a bio-sand water filter.
Radha and Kiran will will receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Radha’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.
