Life in the Thar desert depends on access to clean drinking water, not just for the hardworking Tharis, but also for the cattle they raise for their livelihood. Young girls and their mothers often have to travel as many as 3 kilometers every day in scorching heat just to fetch one pot of drinking water for their families.
Access to water and improved sanitation can change lives. Clean water means health, income and education for the entire village. With The Water Project by GCT, each village we engage gets their own well, providing a safe and reliable source of clean drinking water right outside their homes. GCT has initiated 430 Water Projects with over 110,000 Beneficiaries and it aims to install Water Projects at all 2,300 villages of Tharparkar.
