Water borne diseases are 80% of all our diseases and cause 33% deaths in our country. JOIN US and so many donors as we address this pervasive NATIONAL malaise ONE SCHOOL BY ONE SCHOOL! Only Rs 16,850 will keep 250 children safe from water borne disease! That is the cost of digging a (140 ft deep) well and installing a hand-pump in a government school. So far we have dug 50 DEEP-BORE WELLS benefitting over 9,000 children. During February-April we will dig 50 more wells in schools in Kot Addu Tehsil and report its progress here
Later, we will also give 2-gallon cans to the children to take potable water home.
With stickers on them promoting hand washing and girls’ education.
