Working with tribal children in central India, I realised very quickly that despite the most well-intentioned programs aimed at addressing the health, education and livelihood challenges of some of these people, a sustainable solution was only possible through a nuanced understanding of their relationship with water, which is at the root of human well-being. Over the past few years, I have exhausted my savings in the work for poverty alleviation.
But the journey has only just begun. There is a real need to study water management and acquire a scientific understanding of water and its deep relationship to poverty. In the quest for learning, I have applied and received admission to the IHE in the Netherlands, the foremost institute of learning for the development sector in water, established by the UNESCO over fifty years ago.
Now I need your help to tide over the next 18 months and successfully complete this postgraduate course.
I urge you to extend your moral and financial support to help me complete this endeavour. It is an essential step in helping those in poverty, whose situation is made worse through poor access to water.
Thank you and ever grateful.
