My name is Nikhil Kotha and I am a Grade 9 student at Oakridge International School, Bengaluru.
I have undertaken this campaign because I believe this is an initiative that honestly transforms the lives of women in rural India. Carrying pots of water on their heads, every day, for a lifetime is an age-old practice of carrying water from water bodies to their homes in villages all across the nation. Women have to travel long distances making the task that much more difficult. It is not only back-breaking but time-consuming. Not only is fetching this water a tedious process but due to the ergonomics of the water pots, it also leads to a wastage of water.
The Water Wheel solves this problem forever & gives them time, better health and less stress. Let us together help make their lives easier. The time saved is used for other chores and in a lot of cases leads to higher income as the time saved is put to good use by women to earn money. This impacts the household income and leads to a happier family.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring joy to more women in rural India.
