Projects Done in Conjunction with
Folk Arts Rajasthan (FAR) ~Rajasthan, INDIA
Funds provided by WaterBridge Outreach to the Merasi School and Folk Arts Rajasthan have helped families to meet some of their immediate needs for kitchen staples including water during the COVID crisis
Reverse Osmosis System
The Merasi School has never had its own drinking water and, in close collaboration with FAR and LKSS, WaterBridge Outreach engaged in installing a sizeable water tank, with water purifier, to remedy this need.
The Merasi School
The children of the Merasi School are considered untouchable. As such they are denied access to most education. Since 2010 WaterBridge Outreach has been working to put books into the hands of Merasi School students.
Merasi School was opened in 2007 and is the only learning space where Merasi children are welcomed and treated with respect. It functioned for the first decade with a funky single toilet. Now thanks once again to a wonderful alliance, two gender-specific stone-tiled toilets have been constructed. They are made of the Thar Desert sandstone that along with the dunes earned Jaisalmer the name “The Golden City”. The days of the funky toilet at Merasi School are no more!
