Mumbai school girl sets up water ATMs in rural Maharashtra
A school girl from the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai has started a program to provide clean drinking water to people in the villages of Maharashtra.
The project is called Jal Jeevan, and under this water ATMs will be set up across the rest of India as well at a later stage.
The first ATM has been set up at Solapur in western Maharashtra. Nearly 300 families in the region are already using it to get clean drinking water.
The student set this up by raising Rs 15 lakh from individuals, government officials and the Mumbai municipal commission.
