Barefoot College, Rajasthan

July 2003

HEMLATA initiated the building of wells in villages in Rajasthan, with the BAREFOOT COLLEGE. In the United Nations Year of Water, in the dry north-western state of Rajasthan in India where girls and women have to walk several miles to retrieve water, Hemlata took on the project of rain water harvesting. Thus girls working in the farms during the day were motivated to go to school in the evening where they would be provided water, free of cost, to take home to their families. 3 water tanks were built in 3 villages of Rajasthan, which facilitated the provision of water to over 250 families.
