Summary

Babli is a resident of Mewat region of Haryana, Hathin Block, district Palwal. She treks several miles daily to fetch water. With scorching Sun, parched land and rapidly depleting source of water, she does not know how long she will get water. She and many like her have abandoned their cattle as there is no water or fodder for them. She is not very old but due to drinking contaminated water day in day out her hair is almost grey, her joints are swollen and her gait is slow and laborious.

Challenge

There are more than 83 villages in Hathin block of Palwal district which are facing acute water shortage. Water is a basic human right and inability to access clean drinking water seriously impairs human development. With mercury touching 46 degree celsius, life is sometimes unbearable for the poor women in this area. A disproportionate amount of their earning goes into Medical Bills. One of their source of earning, cattle rearing, is almost abandoned in the scorching summer months.

Solution

SPYM and its field implementing partner Sankul Foundation have been working in Mewat region for the past four and half years. They have set up four R.O plants in the poorest of poor villages which provides clean drinking water at negligible cost to the villagers. SPYM/Sankul foundation seeks generous donations from you for establishing one Water Treatment Plant (R.O) in Babli's village which will bring transformational change in her life and hundreds of those like her. A small donation needed!

Long-Term Impact

Providing clean drinking water to a village can potentially improve the quality of life of over 5000 persons living in the village. It would reduce expenditure on water related diseases by a whopping 70% or so. The school enrollment of children would improve significantly. The time and effort wasted on unproductive work of fetching water from long distance could be utilized on improving livelihood activities. The women would feel empowered and would contribute significantly to the economy
