Summary: Through Literacy Arrangement of Safe Drinking Water Supply

Education plays a vital role in the development of person and society. Education is an essential human virtue. Man becomes 'man' through education. He is what education makes him. It has been rightly said that without education, man is a splendid slave, reasoning savage. That's why our objective and motto is Education for People.

Rotary Club of Rupandehi organized the Rotary Community Corps Jahada in 9 August 2012. RCC Jahada is approximately 600 meter far from Bhalwari, Rupandehi,Nepal But People of this village consists of poor, deprived and lower caste. There are 105 household and 455 populations of RCC Jahada. This village is near highway but it is like the dark beneath the candle. Main profession of the villagers is to do labor in field for other. When they are not getting the job they will have to starve in hunger. In that village approximately 95% of the youth community is illiterate and small children go to the school. Near the village Nepal Government has constructed the water tank for the safe drinking water for the 10-12 surrounding villages, but due to poverty they are unable to pay the service charge for the connection of the water tap in their home. Due to which they are force to drink the contaminated water by which they are subject to get health problem.(eg. Skin disease, Diarrhea, Vomiting etc)

The one of the major objective of the Rotary International and district 3292 is make all people able to read and write and make them literate. For them we have made the announcement that, we will provide the water connection to the house without any charges but in one condition that the entire family member in that house where the tap is to connected should be literate. For that the club has managed all the arrangement for the free of charge teaching classes. They can come and learn at their convenience time in the morning and evening during the day time they can work.
