13-year-old Sakshi and 10-year-old Sapna live in the Kushlawa village with their parents and siblings. In temperatures up to 50°C or 122°F, these siblings walk long distances to collect water for their family.
Although they both love to study, Sakshi and Sapna only have time to attend school after completing their housework.
Because of the generous support of donors Sanjeev Singla and Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation Sakshi and Sapna’s lives will soon change for the better. Their family will soon receive a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter. The tank captures water during the summer monsoon and can provide a family with clean water for 9 months. The tank can be easily refilled from pond water. In addition, Sakshi and Sapna will also receive a bicycle, school supplies and tuition for school.
Their family will also receive training to setup a garden using the khadin method; enabling Sakshi and Sapna to enjoy more nutritious food.
As a result, Sakshi will be able to pursue her love of Hindi and become a Hindi teacher; while Sapna continues to study History.
OneProsper International is building a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Sakshi and Sapna’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable the girls to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
