Access to Water for 500 Rural Indian Families
650 Million people on the planet lack reliable access to safe water. Many rural Indian women and girls travel at least half a mile to reach a safe water source, taking up 25% of a women's day. Water is HEAVY. A woman or girl would carry 20KG each trip several times a day. The Wello WaterWheel cuts down on the trips, eases the burden and saves time, which can be used more productively and means instead of carrying water a girl can go to school. More water means better health and hygiene. project reportread updates from the field
