Vikita and Dhanvati live with her parents and sisters in the Mandla Khurd village in the Jodhpur district of India. Dhanvati’s family lives in a small one-room home because her parents earn $ 2 per day as laborers on a peanut farm.
Dhanvati’s sisters wake up at 5:00 am and spend their day collecting water for their family. Dhanavati would have also followed this path as she grows older. But now, thanks to the generous support of donors, Hyatt Family Foundation and The Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, Dhanvati, and her sisters will soon change for the better.
Vikita and Dhanvati’s parents will be able to send all their daughters to school and increase their income through sustainable farming methods.
OneProsper International will build a rainwater harvesting tank with biosand filter for Vikita and Dhanvati’s family. The tank will capture water during the summer monsoon and can be refilled from pond water. This will enable Vikita and Dhanvati to attend school rather than walk long distances to collect water.
Vikita and Dhanvati will each receive a bicycle, schools supplies and tuition to attend school.
Vikita and Dhanvati’s family will receive training to setup a garden using Khadin cultivation. *
* A Khadin is an earthen bund that contains rainwater within an agricultural area. A khadin is one of the most effective and sustainable methods for promoting crop growth in water-scarce regions.

Naino Devi and her husband have little formal education. Naino Devi works at a nearby farm while her husband works at a construction site to provide for their daughters. They are both committed to providing their daughters with the best education possible.
Naino explains that she was very unhappy at seeing her daughters Vikita and Dhanvanti carrying earthen pots on their heads instead of books in their hands. Previously, water collection used to consume half their day and almost all of their energy.
Naino Devi was filled with joy the day that their taanka was completed after 4-5 months of construction. Vikita and Dhanavati were very happy to receive a brand new bicycle, school bag and supplies. Dhanavati loves to help her mother with gardening and can be seen tending to the fruits and vegetables in their garden. Vikita loves to study science and wants to become a doctor.
Naino Devi and her family are so touched by everyone that has helped to brighten their lives and expressed their gratitude for this life changing support.
