Though water is a basic necessity for survival, it is one of the most under-prioritized but over abused commodities in society. Urban developments, man-made constructions, have contributed to contaminating natural resources. The people dependent on these contaminated water resources are prone to water-borne diseases and get caught up in a vicious circle of debts trying to pay the medical bills.
Our ultimate goal is to provide safe drinking water for the needy.
WHAT WE CAME ACROSS:
The scarcity of pure drinking water is the cause we have been fighting for. The majority of the schools in rural areas do not have the access to pure drinking water which is why children have been consistently falling ill. The struggle to fetch water is real and some of them have to walk barefoot for miles to fetch pure drinking water.
Many schools have water purifiers that are broken and other schools provide drinking water, often contaminated as they resort to available water resources.
Water-borne diseases have been the cause of major illnesses and fatal deaths among school children. Students tend to drop out of school and there is an increased level of absenteeism reported over the years.
WHAT WE INTEND TO DO:
Our ultimate goal is to provide safe drinking water for school children, and underprivileged communities.
We will install the necessary water purifiers at the schools which are in need.
