We have pledged to provide an ambitious 300 water ‘taankas’ to tribal communities in the Thar Desert. By providing a taanka to each extended family, monsoon rainwater can be captured that will provide cleaner water. With water hygiene training, the whole family will have better health and the wisdom of the elders will be preserved and passed to future generations. With no need to fetch water, mothers can feed the family while daughters can instead go back to school.
Women and girls are the hardest hit when there isn’t enough or safe water at home. Girls as young as 8 are taken out of school to fetch water from long distances, living a life of drudgery, danger, pain and hardship. Help us give these girls a chance, and they will help their families and their communities.
£500 will cover a girl’s water and sanitation costs and our appeal is to reach 1 girl in each of our 50 villages.
