Naina & Koji
Naina and Koji are sisters who love studying and want to become Hindi Masters, a highly respected position. However, 13-year-old Naina had to drop out of school to help her mother with collecting water and feeding their livestock. 9-year-old Koji was worried she would have to do the same.
But thanks to OneProsperU – York University and the Richa and Atul Aggarwal Foundation, who have each donated $1,100, Naina and Koji can continue their education.
Their family will receive a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter, which collects water during the summer monsoon. The 20,000 L tank will provide water for 9 months of the year and can be refilled from pond water. Their family will also receive training to plant a garden using the khadin method which uses rainwater for agriculture.
Now Naina and Koji will be able to attend school and will receive bicycles, school supplies, and tuition to support them in pursuing their dreams of being Hindi Masters..
