United for Hope is an NGO born out of a love for India and the wish to create more equality in the world. The United for Hope international team works on a volunteer basis to create more dignified and safer living for rural India's desperately poor.
The donated money will go directly to the village of Tirmasahun in the state of Uttar Pradesh, one of the poorest states in India.
Improving the safe drinking water supply is one of our key projects.
The water in the village is not clean and thus causes serious illnesses. Arsenic is common in the region.
United for Hope has built a Water House, which houses an environmentally-friendly water purification system. In June 2015, we launched our Clean Water Project, which consists of a water kiosk where locals can collect water themselves at a price designed to be affordable for even the poorest villagers. A small pay-for-product from the community ensures the system is maintained and repaired accordingly. The project employs three local people, and many families have so far signed up for our clean water service.
The local school and our community centre students receive our clean water free of charge.
Solar energy is another key component in our projects, as 60% of the village has no access to electricity. Families rely on kerosene for light, which is both expensive and dangerous. The fumes can cause serious health issues. United for Hope's solar project provides the villagers and the small businesses of Tirmasahun and the surrounding areas with a clean, safe source of solar energy through a microgrid connection and delivery of portable battery kits.
Thanks to our solar energy source, we can offer our classes in the community centre with reliable electricity, thus encouraging education via solar.
Please help us to make an impact. Support us to change people's life and to create more equality and dignity.
