I'm pledging my 1st birthday to bring clean water to Tamil Nadu

Story

780 million people don’t have access to clean water. The number is higher for those who don’t have a water connection into their homes. Turn on the tap and water gushes out – a privilege we take for granted. We must appreciate the pains women in Tamil Nadu and several other places in the world take to fetch water for their daily needs.
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 of Rs 7000, which got her a piped connection at home. Today, she is a lot happier.
Milaap's field partner GUARDIAN provides loans for many women like Murugayee 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.
As a child I wish that we can all work for a better tomorrow where everyone has access to water and sanitation. Water is a necessity of life, we can’t live without it. Besides, I just love playing in water so very much! Splashing water all around during "nai nai" (bath in Hindi) is one of the most fun parts of my day!
Lets make a difference together.
