Weʼre raising £3,000 to provide safe drinking water to rural villages of Rajasthan
- 18 days to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
TransIndus has partnered “Water Harvest” a charity committed to providing safe, clean and sustainable water to remote villages of Rajasthan where local communities face severe drought for most of the year, forcing women and children to walk miles in a desperate search for water.
This year Transindus will independently fund five ‘Rainwater Harvesting Systems’ to capture, process, purify and store rainwater and ensure at least five families have a regular supply of safe and clean water for a lifetime. With your help we hope to provide a further ten systems for make ten more families water-sufficient.
Your Support will Change Lives Forever:
Each system costs approximately £300, inclusive of building materials, installation work, maintenance support and education. We would like to ask your help by donating what you can. Any support you can give to help raise awareness or funds will make a big difference. Whatever you can give will go directly to supporting the families benefiting from this project.
£10 will buy 42 bricks to make the walls of a water taanka strong enough to last
£17 will buy a bucket and masonry tools to ensure a water taanka is built to a high standard
£38 will cover the costs for a whole community to be trained in how to maintain and use a water taanka so it lasts for generations
£56 will pay for specialist machinery to dig a deep pit for a water taanka
£300 will cover all of WaterHarvest’s co-investment costs for a water taanka
On your next visit to Rajasthan why not visit the villages you have helped and whilst there maybe even get involved with the local community in teaching English to school children for a day, offering help, support and advice on healthcare, farming, hygienic storage food during winter etc.
