Mamta and Nirma, who are 14 and 10 years-old respectively, live in the Mandla Khurd village with their parents and siblings.
Both Mamta and Nirma have to walk long distances to collect water and must face hot desert winds and acute heat in the summer. Although Mamta and Nirma love studying, they do not currently have the opportunity to attend school.
However thanks to the generous support of Hyatt Family Foundation and The Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, they will both be able to complete their education. And in addition to their education, Mamta, Nirma, and their family will be able to have more nutritious food and incomes by growing vegetables using the khadin method.
Mamta and Nirma will now be able to complete their education and realize their dreams!
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Mamta and Nirma’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Mamta and Nirma to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Mamta and Nirma will each receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Mamta and Nirma’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.

Pampo Devi works at a nearby farm that has a tube well. She earns about $2 per day which barely enough for providing for her daughters. Previously, Pampo Devi worried about her daughter’s lack of regular schooling, nutrition and general health. She has tried to provide her daughters with the best but there was only so much she could do.
Now, thanks to the support of OneProsper, Pampo Devi is able to send her daughters to school, feed them nutritious food and provide them with clean water.
Nirma and Mamta (Pampo Devi’s daughters) are happy they no longer have to walk long distances to collect water across the desert. A full taanka can meet their family needs for 7-8 months. Afterwards, the taanka can be refilled from pond water. Pampo Devi wants her daughters to study and is willing to relocate to a nearby town so that they are able to attend a good college. She wants her daughters to secure government positions and to never look back.
They don’t have phones or TVs but Pampo is hopeful about the future because in her own words she has seen a miracle during the past one year. Their lives have turned around completely. Pampo Devi no longer has to struggle to put food on the table. She is able to generate additional income by growing fruits and vegetables using rainwater and the Khadin method.
Pampo Devi would like to thank everyone that has made this possible for her and her family.
