Located near one of India's biggest urban landscapes, Abheypur village is a rustic heaven with semi pucca houses and working farmers. A school, reminiscent of story books with trees in the yard and brick walled classrooms is perhaps it's biggest treasure. Accommodated by 400 students, the village and the school despite being decently placed lacks one vital facility- clean and drinkable water. Major sources of water include Tubewell, Borewell and MCD Pipelines and around 80% people want a water filter installed calling it a vital need.
Realizing their problems, we decided to take initiative and start Project Jeevika, to set up self created water filters providing employment to the women and water to one and all in the village.
Who are We?
Enactus is an international non-profit organisation that seeks to impact the lives of people in need through the positive effects of business. At Enactus Hindu College, students from various disciplines are committed towards bringing sustainable change in society through innovation and entrepreneurial spirit.
Abheypur exists in close proximity with Gurgaon and hence is decently advanced in other terms of daily living- housing, education and food. Water, however remains a constant cause of worry for the residents given it's unavailability in clean form and the consequent risk of several diseases. We will be helped in this Project by The Sehgal foundation that will be conducting workshops for women to assemble the filter. In the course of this project, we will hence succeed in providing feasible avenues of work to the otherwise unemploymed people and also in providing pure water to people of Abheypur.
We will be needing INR 50,000 to convert our vision into reality for which we shall be needing your help and kindest wishes. Your contribution will be instrumental in the journey of these women as they successfully take on the roles of entrepreneurs.
The funds collected thus, shall be used in setting up a filter inside the school to provide clean water to the kids who come their daily for studying. Also, the funds shall be used for setting up community filters in the village households.
Change comes best when people involved become agents of change themselves and that is what we intend to bring about in Abheypur, a spirit within the community to make their standard of living better, aided by you and us.
We know you realize the value that comes in life with self dependency and fulfillment of basic needs, hence, we urge you to take a step forward in becoming a catalyst to the process of making their lives better. Spread happiness, Spread love!
