The Social Impact Shopping for a Cause Makes
But high fashion isn’t the only thing that WomenServe strives for. First, and foremost, our mission is to create water security in Rajasthan. In this area of the world, women and girls have to walk up to 10 hours a day to collect water. This burden robs girls of a chance at an education. It compromises her health and hygiene. It keeps women impoverished, unable to earn an income.
But when she has water, she has amazing opportunities that are created before her eyes.
The social impact water has on girls
When girls don’t have to walk for water with their mothers, they can go to school and graduate from the 12th grade. She can go to college, and create the life she desires. The alternative is being married to someone she doesn't know before her 18th birthday.
The social impact water has on women’s financial security.
When a woman doesn’t have to walk for water, she can join an artisan group, like the Thar Artisan Collective. In this group, she engages in a fellowship of other women all moving in an upward direction. They encourage one another while creating artisan goods that can help support their family.
The impact water has on a family’s health and hygiene.
When a family has water close to home, the health and hygiene of the family increases. Mortality rates decrease. Washing of dishes, and bodies, can be done easily. Can you imagine washing dishes with sand? Yes, this is a reality for women in the desert of Rajasthan, when water is scarce.
