Durga Muralidhar Chaudhari

Durga, a young lady walks up to 1.5km every day in peak heat to collect water from a well.

“All the wells of the village are dry due to drought. The village collects water from the hand pump, which is the only source of water for us.

We end up carrying water the whole day, from early morning to late at night.

It makes meals late and we have to stay hungry for long periods.

My dream is to learn! I want to attend my school, but I dont have time to study as I have the duty of carrying water.”
