Gita & Dhapu
Gita and Dhapu are 9 and 7 years old respectively. They live in Sanguri village, Jodhpur district of India with their parents and siblings.
Gita and Dhapu’s mother is very stressed because they have 4 daughters to care for and her husband has been searching for work for 2 months.
Despite their tender ages, Gita and Dhapu help their mother to collect water from a local pond and to feed their goats and cows. A rainwater harvesting tank would enable Gita and Dhapu to attend school rather than spending hours to collect water.
Their favorite subject is Hindi and they would like to become a teacher when they grow up.
