Water In India
Water well projects in Southern India
Water = Education
“Three miles uphill both ways in the snow.” How many times have we heard this funny line? But it’s not that far off when describing the daily life of a child in India. Just replace “snow” with 110 degree heat, remove your shoes, and put 40 pounds of water on your head. Might as well be uphill both ways, right?
This is how women and children spend their days. Hours and hours collecting water full of diseases. Water that may kill them, and their children. But it’s all they have.
There is little time for anything else.
We asked children in India “what is the best part of having this well in your village?”
“Now I can attend school.”
LoveManifest believes in community development, and educating the children is the hope for their future.
Water = Life
It’s hard to imagine over a billion people living without access to clean drinking water, isn’t it? But it’s a very real fact.
Every day over 4,000 mothers in India alone have to bury their children who succumb to the effects of water born illnesses.
But what are their choices? It’s this or it’s nothing.
So they give them the nasty water, and pray for the best.
It’s time to answer their prayer.
