If you haven’t had a chance to read about this lovely lady, Esther Havens wrote an inspiring piece about Rani on Valentine’s Day. She is Well Mechanic #30, and just one of the 140+ well mechanics you sponsored in India last year. Thanks to your help and support, people like Rani have been not only giving their community access to clean water, but inspiring their peers, friends and family.
Now that you’ve met just 30 of the many well mechanics who now have a steady source of income for their families, a sense of pride and dignity, and are bringing clean water to their communities, consider helping us out by bringing this program to Africa. You can learn more and get involved by visiting our campaign page, here: http://www.stayclassy.org/events/help-bring-water-well-mechanics-to-africa-waterworks/e23733
Where she works: Bapuji
Family Status: 2 daughters
Job before becoming a Well Mechanic: She also works part time as a health worker, and helps out in local schools.
Why she decided to become a Well Mechanic: “Rani decided to become a well mechanic because she had seen so many children die from malaria and diarrhea, and the two wells in her village were constantly breaking. As a leader in the village, she thought she could do something to help.”
