Water is the key to life. Millions of women in rural India walk many kilometres a day to get water from a distant water source like a river, lake or pond. They do this by carrying pots or vessels on their heads and make multiple trips. This takes up all their time, creates health issues (as it impacts the back, neck, etc) and leads to unnecessary stress.

We can together change that with a simple, low cost and amazing innovation called the Water Wheel.

The water wheel is a simple, low cost, high impact initiative that allows them to carry a large volume of water with minimal effort. This saves them time, energy and is a game-changer in rural areas. They can use the time saved for the betterment of their families. It also creates social change as men step forward and use the water wheel to get water.

I am raising INR 25000 or more to impact 10 women or more in rural areas by giving each of them a water wheel. This is being done in partnership with the Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar. Each water wheel has a capacity of 45 L and one trip in a day is enough for the needs of the entire household typically.

These funds will be used for funding 10 women by giving them a water wheel each. If I raise INR 50000, I can impact 20 women.

THE WATER WHEEL


Water wheels that were distributed in the Raichur district of Karnataka.

CASE STUDY

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN:

My name is manya verma and I am a Grade 8 student at Oakridge International School, Bengaluru.

I have undertaken this campaign because I love working with animals and this campaign will help spread the awareness that even animals need to be taken care of . I love sports , travelling and dancing . Science and French are one of my favorite subjects to learn in school. I really enjoy working with animals and that's why I have taken up this campaign.

IMPACT

One of the most important behavioural changes is that men are willing to help out with getting water (if a water wheel is available). That is a dramatic change in behaviour at the grassroots and allows women to do other productive work.

FEATURES & SPECS

The water wheel is a cylindrical plastic container that can hold over 45 litres of water. The handles help people to roll it on the ground without the physical strain that occurs while carrying water pots on head, shoulders or waist.

LOCATION & MAP

The map shows the locations where Water Wheels are required.

The map shown here highlights the location of the area where these water wheels will be distributed. Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar is based in Bangalore.

TAX BENEFITS

All funding for this campaign has tax benefits. Receipts will be issued by Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar which is a registered Trust. Indian citizens can avail of 80G tax benefits. Foreign funding is not accepted.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET

To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from NGO (this takes between 2 to 4 months usually after the funds are raised & transferred to them) telling me who benefitted from the funding. The details will then be posted on the UPDATES section of my campaign. As soon as I post an update, the platform will send an SMS and EMAIL alert to all the funders- i.e. to you. That's transparent right.

The below image is an example of the FEEDBACK FORMAT that will be shared.


FAQs

Will we get to know the details of how the money was spent? 

Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar. It will take from 2 to 4 months after that to get details of the beneficiaries. Once I get this information from them I shall upload the details about the number of people who have benefitted on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.

When do I get the receipts?

It takes up to 2-3 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to the NGO. The receipts will start getting processed about 6 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly.

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.

Updates have been committed to after the campaign ends.
This is an open forum for all funders of this campaign.
Other registered users can send their comments/ queries directly to the campaign owner as a message.
