Summary

Provide safe drinking water to 10,000 children in 70 schools. Also, provide a nutritious mid-day meal to these children that is rich in calcium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin E, and other antioxidants.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In India, 6 million children below the age of 14 are diseased from drinking fluoride-poisoned water. Communities in rural India depend on groundwater, drawn through tube wells, hand pumps and open wells that are contaminated with fluoride.

How will this project solve this problem?

Counter the effects of fluoride poisoning by providing a nutritious meal for school-aged children. Remove fluoride from water by installing filitration systems for preschool and elementary school children.

Potential Long Term Impact

Schoolchildren will not be threatened by fluoride in their water and children affected by poisoning will gain the nutrients necessary to recover.
