Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation
Until this year, water collection would take up half of Dhanwanti and her sister Vikita’s day and almost all their energy. Dhanwanti and Vikita would walk miles across the desert carrying earthen pots on their head.
Today, Dhanwanti and Vikita and are going to school. Their mother was filled with joy when their rainwater harvesting tank was completed after four months of construction. Dhanwanti and Vikita no longer suffer from health problems from drinking dirty water. After school, they help her mother to grow fruits and vegetables in a kitchen garden next to their rainwater harvesting tank. They also help to grow wheat and millet on the family farm for income generation. As a result, Dhanwanti and Vikita can now focus on their education.
OneProsper ensures that each girl gets the support she needs to attend school. She and her family receive:
- A rainwater harvesting tank
- Training in sustainable farming
- Seeds to grow food and cash crops
- Tuition and school supplies
- A bicycle to take her to and from school
