Water is the sacred source of life and the carrier of the soul in all religions. Awareness on the sacredness of healthy water will be fundamental.
Our sustainable education project includes a water harvesting system – providing clean purified water.
Our Living Cycles Education Project includes rain harvesting, providing clean drinking water, solar energy and eco toilets, (living cycles). These compounds will be placed next to primary schools and temples.The compound consists of a prefab building including 4 eco toilets, 2x sinks for washing hands and 1 healthy water tap point. Everyone using the toilet pays a little money and receives 0,5 l of healthy water. Local people are hired to build the compound with eco-friendly toilets and healthy water system for the community (including schools). It is a safe and clean place, for children and women. Local women can earn a living with maintenance and keeping it clean. The investment is funded by donators and transformed into a Micro Finance Loan creating commitment for service and well-keeping by the (future)owner.
This first investment is used to set-up the first 10 Compounds and create in this way the first 10 pilot projects in which we can evaluate, optimize and make the most robust version to start a crowd funding campaign for further roll-out.
The two selected locations in India, Rishikesh (Northern India) and Bangalore (South-West India), will be managed by our local partners GIWA Parmath Niketan Ashram Rishikesh and Act Foundation in Bangalore.
