LAKSHYAM'S ACHIEVEMENT
Received water supply at Vasant Kunj Basti
Lakshyam finally did what could not happen over 15 years!
Around 100 families who were living in tents in Vasant Kunj over years did not had access to water (Location recently adopted by Lakshyam NGO a year ago). All the residents use to buy water to fulfill their daily need. People used to get water in rickshaws over a rough patch of road or walking kilometers with barrels over their head. As a result they would not take bath for days, not wash their clothes as water was one of the expensive source for them. Kudos to team Lakshyam and team IIT Delhi who over last couple of months had managed to convince Delhi Jal Board to send a tanker every week to the Basti in Vasant Kunj and finally from last 3 weeks the community is getting water.
Special thanks to students of IIT Delhi, Ishita Kumar from Leh Berry, Namrata Joshi from Prerna School of Inspiration, Varun Jain, Mayank Khemka, from RTI 50 who have been supporting the community via water.
TESTIMONIALS
From Volunteer
"Lakshyam is a great platform to connect with the people who really are in need. Being a law student, i have alot of interest in social work. And lakshyam successfully gave the platform to work on it. I enjoyed each and everday with the kids there and knew a lot that how is the life of people there. Students there are very dedicated towards there studies and the best part is their parents want them to study further. They do small works and do not rely on others for the income. They are like a family and they are very cooperative and helping. THANKS LAKSHYAM TO GIVE ME SUCH A WONDERFUL PLATFORM TO WORK ON."
