Project 24 Raybiztech 9 02:00 AM
Palla Village is located in a rural area and the majority of people are living in poverty. The main source of livelihood is earning wages as a daily labor worker. The only source of water for the community and school are contaminated wells. Using the community hand pumps to access the water leads to a non-stop struggle of procuring clean drinking water. In addition to lacking access to clean water, other challenges people face in their day-to-day life include illiteracy, lack of infrastructure and roads, employment, and lack of improved sanitation.
Poonam, 32-years old, walks 2km to the common hand pump and another 2km back every day to collect water. Because so many people in the community are also doing this, she often spends 2-3 hours waiting in line for her turn to collect water from the pump before starting the journey back home. Collecting water is such a time consuming task that often she is unable to manage to prepare food for her children on time as she barely makes it back home before her children get home from school. The amount of water she is able to carry is usually not enough to complete all of her household activities, so she has to go back to the pump again to prepare for the next day. This non-stop struggle leaves her and her family exhausted, with no time for all of the household chores. Their days revolve around collecting water and ensuring they have enough of it.
Our Need For Clean, Safe Water
“Better provision of safe drinking water, sanitation, hygiene services, and education can help women and girls break out from a life of fetching water. This means more time on their own, setting their own agendas and living their own lives.”
- Rajvir Bhati
