I am fundraising to bring clean water to rural India


Murugayee is a 54-year old woman from Musiri, Tamil Nadu. Narrating her daily experience in fetching water, she says recalls how despite queuing up for one hour at the public tap, she's had to return home empty-handed many times. The last straw was when a nasty fight broke out in the queue once and she was left with a broken nose. Deciding to get a permanent solution to this, she sought a loan from Guardian, our field partner. With Rs 7000, she was able to get a piped connection at home. Today, she is a lot happier that she has access to water right from the convenience of her home.
Murugayee's story is not the exception, it is more the norm in many villages in Tamil Nadu, in South India. Women walk to the community water taps to fetch water for their daily water needs. Besides, women can only bring home as much water as they can carry, and those at the back of the long queues do not always have the chance to fill their urns. To solve this problem, our field partner GUARDIAN provides loans for women to build water connections into their homes. These piped connections add precious hours to a woman's day and ensure that families have enough water to meet their daily needs.
