Weʼve raised £1,331 to help WASH, Rajasthan
- Vienna, AUT; Bratislava, SVK; Budapest, HUN; Zagreb, HRV; Ljubljana, SVN; Venice, ITA
- Funded on Monday, 5th November 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer I will be walking from Vienna to Venice; through 6 countries and covering over a 1000 kilometres. Although I will be walking the entirety of the journey, I will have friends joining me on the way, so please do feel free to support them too! The purpose of the walk is not merely to escape the reliance of one's automobile (although that will be nice), the real reason is centred around helping a super local initiative in Rajasthan (WASH, Rajasthan). The project not only hopes to bring sanitation and hygiene to schools and communities in Rural Rajasthan, India, but also strives to reduce health issues related to water-borne disease and poor sanitation, by:
1) Increasing and improving access to safe drinking water.
2) Improving water availability and management for agriculture.
3) Providing schools and communities water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) education & training.
4) Increasing school attendance, by providing adequate school WASH facilities for girls, as well as boys. Educating girls and women about menstrual health and introducing good practices.
5) Establishing a model for community WASH development that can be extended to other villages and areas, by engaging with district and local governments to establish self-help project management groups and providing training and support to local teams, to build knowledge and capacity.
