I believe access to clean drinking water is the basic right of every human being. India, which is fast becoming a economic power house, half the population does not have the access to that.The price of water for the poorest households is nearly 15% of the annual household income. This is because access to water is close to impossible and the water mafia or loan sharks exploit people by charging 100% interest rates, if not more, on the loans. Every week 42,000 deaths occur from preventable diseases like diarrhea and dysentery, caused by unsafe drinking water. 90% of those are children under the age of five

                                       

                                          If we won't drink it, why should they?!

 

      I am helping Milaap raise money to provide piped water connections go the people. With that they will have access to clean drinking water. Help and lend generously and provide the people with basics of survivial. I say lend as it is not a donation but a loan. And yes like a loan, the money comes back to you in 18 months. 

 

     

                      Let us give a little to bring an enormous change in someone's life.

Why I chose Milaap?

Milaap is a social enterprise that enables people around the world to give a loan to the working poor in India. Milaap's loans are aimed towards providing people with access to basic essentials like clean drinking water, sanitation, renewable energy, vocational training and enterprise development.

Milaap believes in giving people a hand up - which is why, the contributions are given out as loans, rather than one-time donations. This means that 100% of your contributions come back to you in eighteen months. Once the money comes back to you, you can choose to fund the same amount to another borrower, thereby multiplying your impact.

What is impressing to me the most is the fact that 100% of your contribution goes as loans and you know exactly who is benefitting from your contribution.
