Vimla lives with her parents, grandmother, and 5 sisters. Although she is only 7 years old, Vimla helps her mother collect water and feed their goats instead of going to school. However, she would love to attend school one day and aspires to become a doctor in her community.
A rainwater harvesting tank will provide Vimla’s family with clean water which will allow Vimla and her sisters to attend school instead of trekking hours to collect water. They will also receive a bicycle, school supplies, and tuition. In addition, Vimla’s family will receive training to plant a garden using the khadin method. This will provide Vimla’s family with nutritious food and higher incomes.
