THE PROBLEM


THE SOLUTION

Let's come together to dramatically transform the lives of the women in rural areas through this simple innovation called the Water Wheel. 

The water wheel is a life-saver for women in rural areas that are water stressed.


See this wonderful video of how the water-wheel actually changes lives.




SO FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU FUND INR 5000 YOU WILL IMPACT 2 WOMEN IN RURAL AREAS.



BENEFICIARY LOCATIONS

There is an identified demand for around 1000 water wheels in the following areas of rural Maharashtra.


ABOUT ME


Hello, I am Aastha Naidu. A 14 year an old student from Euroschool Thane.
Nearly 163 million of India’s population of 1.3 billion lack access to clean water close to home. And the brunt of this is faced by Indian women and girls every single day.
Indian women take up to six trips a day to gather and transport water with the average time being up to 4 hours. These walks in rural regions can average 10km a day, carrying up to fifteen litres every trip. The women load jars or buckets on their heads to carry water. The pressure, added with the distance to water sources create a large number of problems. These women are indicative of the many-armed Hindu goddess Durga -they have so many daily tasks, they could doubtless do with an extra set of hands. But they aren’t the exception, and this gender-specific role has a severe impact on every aspect of their lives, from their health and social life to education and their ability to have a real say in the community.
In fact, it is common for girls in rural India to drop out of school, so as to help carry out the burden of moving water. Girls as young as ten contribute to household tasks.
A simple device known as the water wheel, made of human-safe polyethylene reduces the physical strain on a female, guarantees time saving, provides the family or more importantly the women opportunities to take up jobs and help socio-economically. It enables a child to go to school. To put it simply, I don’t think education should be denied to any girl so she can stay home and do chores and Article 21 of the Indian constitution defies that too.
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up bringing the biggest change. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.” Because a journey of even a 1000 miles starts with one step :)
Thank you.

FEATURES & SPECS


The WATER WHEEL is a cylindrical plastic container that can hold up to 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 the head, shoulders or waist.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET

To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from Rotary Club of Bombay Hanging Garden 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 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. (There will be a detailed report as well).



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 Club Bombay Hanging Garden. It will take from 60 to 120 days after that to get details of who the beneficiary was with details of them. Once I get this information from them I shall upload the picture of the beneficiary 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.
