Puja & Rekha
Puja and Rekha, though only 7 and 5 years old, must walk long distances to collect water from a far away pond and help feed their goats and cows. These chores prevent Puja and Rekha from being able to devote their time adequately to attending school.
Thanks to the generous support of Brad Feld and Richa & Atul Aggarwal Foundation, Puja and Rekha’s family will soon have a rainwater harvesting tank with bio-sand filter. Also, the family will be able to plant a garden using the Khadin method. The Khadin method uses rainwater for agriculture.
As a result, Puja and Rekha will be able to go to classes and spend time in school. Furthermore, they will receive new bicycles, school supplies, and tuition.
