Usha and Jamna
13-year-old Usha and 9-year-old Jamna begin their day at 5:00 am to walk 5 hours to collect water for their family. After collecting water, Usha and Jamna help their mother feed their goats and cows and tend to their crops.
As a result, they are both unable to attend school. However, they are hopeful that they will one day be able to pursue their education. Jamna enjoys Hindi and Math in particular and aspires to become a doctor.
With your support, Usha and Jamna will be able to attend school and their family will have access to clean water and more healthy food. A rainwater harvesting tank will provide Usha and Jamna’s family with clean water for 9 months. Afterwards, the tank can be refilled from pond water. Usha and Jamna will both receive a bicycle, school supplies and tuition. In addition, their family will receive training to plant fruits and vegetables using the Khadin method.
As a result, Usha and Jamna will be able to complete their education and pursue their goals.
