Water Access for Deprived Children in Rural India

by earth&us


This project is dedicated to providing water for drinking and sanitation to rural schools across India. We aim to accomplish this goal by providing infrastructure support, training and creating awareness in the area of rainwater harvesting and water conservation.

Millions of Indians currently lack access to clean drinking water. The situation is getting worse with the population exprd to increase to 1.6 billion by year 2050. Students are forced to abandon schools due to lack of toilets and unavailability of mid-day meals primarily emanating from a deficit of reliable water supply - perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty and inequality. Creating cost-effective infrastructure to bring clean water to schools and knowledge within communities is critical.


Our extensive work in rural education and awareness across remote locations in India has exposed us to the lives, aspirations and challenges of several people, especially children. No hardship has been as acute and heartbreaking as witnessing a child struggle to access clean and safe drinking water. Pravah aligns itself with the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (Education for all) framework, directing all states to provide basic infrastructure facilities such as clean drinking water and toilets in schools.

Long-Term Impact

Water scarcity is expected to become a key source of national and international conflict in the coming years. Moreover, India needs solutions so that future generations can have access to basic amenities such as clean drinking water and grow up with dignity. For India to be water secure, it would need to ensure affordable, efficient and sustainable long-term access to clean drinking water.
