About

Phooli and Puja, who are 12 and 10 years old, live in the Thar Desert with their parents and siblings. Like most girls in the Thar Desert, Phooli and Puja begin their day at 5:00 am to help their mother collect water and feed their goats and cows.

As a result, Phooli and Puja are only able to attend school for a couple of hours after finishing their chores. Phooli and Puja enjoy studying and frequently study at home. Both Phooli and Puja are keen to attend school regularly.

With your support, Phooli and Puja will be able to do so! In addition, their family will have clean water and more nutritious food.

 

Our Holistic Solution

Water

A taanka (rainwater harvesting tank) with built in bio-sand water filter will be built for Phooli and Puja’s family. The taanka will capture water during the summer monsoon and can also be refilled from pond water. This will enable Phooli and Puja to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.

Education

Phooli and Puja will receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.

Food & Income

Phooli and Puja’s family will receive training to setup a garden using Khadin* cultivation. By using Khadin cultivation, Phooli and Puja’s family will be able to grow green vegetables and desert fruits including lemon and pomegranate. As a result, they will be able to consume more nutritious food and sell their surplus.

*The Khadin method is a 500 year-old practice that involves building a slope and using run-off rain water for agriculture. A bund at the base retains water for agriculture. This is one of the most effective and sustainable methods for promoting crop growth in water scarce regions.
