IDRF has provided more than 500 Water Wheels, that help women and girls in villages fetch 45 liters of water at one go, from the ponds and wells about 2-3 miles from their homes. These durable plastic water containers on wheels save time, effort, and drudgery for women and girls. Each Water Wheel costs only $35 and is used by 4-5 women/families daily for fetching water for their household use. Most people don’t realize that each Water Wheel saves women and girls several hours of trudging and carrying water every day! “The Water Wheels have saved me from years of neck and back pain”, says Jyotiben. “Even the personal hygiene activities of my family have improved with the availability of extra water! Thanks to IDRF for providing Water Wheels, my daughter Pooja now has time to study and play with other children”.
