My name is Neeti Singh. I am 13 years old and in grade 9 at the EuroSchool, Thane.
Anne Frank has rightly said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.”
I want to promote this campaign as I believe that if people fund in this campaign it will transform the lives of women in rural areas, who are troubled with the inconvenient task of walking long distances to get water. The task is time-consuming and very burdensome.It causes back and neck-aches. During hot summers the condition can get even wore. Imagine walking in the scorching and oppressive heat of 45°C. The women spend long hours to get the water & end up wasting a lot of time. This time that could be used to do something more productive and generate income elsewhere.
The Water Wheel is a simple and revolutionary innovation which is very easy-to-use. It can hold up to 45L of water and provides the household with enough water for a day or more. The handles on the water-wheel can be removed in seconds and it then doubles as a storage container. It's very durable and will last for years. It also brings about a massive behavioural change as many boys and men start using it to get water.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring joy to more women. The Water wheels will be distributed by the team from the Rotary Club of Hanging Gardens with their local partners. The cost of doing this (including identifying the women, the cost of the water wheel, the actual distribution ) is only INR 2500 per water wheel making it truly a revolutionary idea.
Lets together impact and change the lives of these women in rural areas in India.
