Clean Water Can Change Every Aspect of Life In Orissa, India

“Just because a person is poor, it doesn’t mean they deserve poor solutions.”- Joe Madiath, founder of Gram Vikas. Joe is a pioneer in India who founded Gram Vikas to help thousands of rural communities in India break the cycle of poverty by providing them access to high-quality water solutions.

For a community in India, access to clean water means:

1. Empowering Women– Women will no longer have to walk miles and miles everyday for water. They will be able to take care of their children and household, plant food, get an education and earn an income.

2. Social Equality- Lower class civilians will have access to toilets, showers and drinking water. People will begin to take pride in themselves and become productive members of their community.

3. Education- Kids won’t miss weeks of school out sick. Women will have an opportunity for an education.

4. Health- No longer will people bathe, wash their clothes and prepare their food in ponds filled with algae and waterborne diseases. They will also no longer drink this dirty disease filled water. Children won’t suffer from scabies or die from diarrhea.
