Description: Dorakottala Village has a population of around 100 families, most of which are below the poverty line. Young children go the Anganwadi during the day while their parents work. Children spend their day in unsafe conditions. Raising the money required to renovate the Anganwadi would mean children would have a safe space to stay in while their parents are away.

Project 2: Anganwadi Extended Hours

Project Leads: Shailey Guddeti, Shreya Guddeti

Working with: Grama Volunteer (government appointed volunteer for the village welfare)

 

Impact: Allow children to stay at Anganwadi, Dorakottala Village, longer while their parents work. Hire staff to supervise extended hours for the children. 

 

Cost: approx. $40 per month, $280 per year

 

Goal: Constant salary for staff

 

Description: Dorakottala Village has a population of around 100 families, most of which are below the poverty line. Young children go the Anganwadi during the day while their parents work. The majority of adults in the village work as laborers, a job that demands more hours during the day, usually until 6:00 P.M. The Anganwadi is only open from 9 A.M.-3 P.M. Children ages 2.5 to 5 years old need a safe and supervised environment to stay in until their parents can take them home. Currently, a young girl, aged 5, is unable to attend kindergarten because her sister is 2 years old and requires supervision until their mother comes home. This is an example of many similar cases that can be solved with hiring more staff.

 

 

Project 3: Dorakottala Water Filtration System

Project Leads: Shailey Guddeti, Shreya Guddeti

Working with: Grama Volunteer (government appointed volunteer for the village welfare)

 

Impact: Install a village water filter in government provided location. 

 

Cost: approx. $4,000

 

Goal: Raise $4,000

 

Description: Right now in Dorakottala Village, there is very limited to no access to safe filtered water. The dangers of pumping straight groundwater include chemicals such as aluminum, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, thorium, uranium, zinc, and other metals. Some forms of radiation, such as gross alpha and beta particles, are significantly reduced by filtering. The government provided location is available to install a water filtration system.

Project 4: Girls’ Hygiene Project

Project Leads: Shailey Guddeti, Shreya Guddeti

Working with: Grama Volunteer (government appointed volunteer for the village welfare)

 

Impact: Teach young girls in Dorakottala Village about personal hygiene through webinars. Each girl will receive a packet: 6 months supply of sanitary pads, toothbrush & toothpaste, shampoo/soap.

 

Cost: $25 per kit for 25 girls, approx. $625 total

 

Goal: Raise $625

 

Description: Young girls in Dorakottala Village do not currently have access to all the supplies they need to maintain their personal hygiene. This is because, as mentioned in project 1&2 descriptions, a majority of the families living there are unable to afford even basic necessities for their children. Additionally, these girls require health education, currently lacking in Dorakottala Village schools. By providing a starter kit for each girl and explaining the benefits, uses, etc. girls can learn about how to stay healthy and active everyday. The webinars are presentation where we will interact and have a discussion with the girls online about personal hygiene.
