Water and education

Indian children with safe water

Children and their families have had hope stripped away. ​

We turn the tap to fill a glass with safe clean water, but they can’t do that. We dress our children nicely and drive them to school, but these children have no school.


It’s a bleak picture in the village where a double tragedy unfolds as water pollution becomes entwined with the absence of education. This is leaving the families trapped in a life without hope. Contaminated water, a source of pain and illness, breaks through their daily lives, robbing them of hope and dreams.


But the loss deepens as innocent and eager children are denied the gift of education. Illiteracy binds them to an ongoing cycle of poverty and limited opportunities. They are thirsty for knowledge, but left dry, with no chance to flourish or escape the harsh realities that surround them.


The absence of education casts a shadow of despair, dimming their prospects for a brighter future. In this desperate situation, the village withers, stripped of hope and deprived of the means to break free from the chains of ignorance and contaminated waters.

Suresh wrote to us saying how his family were suffering for almost one and half year without safe drinking water in their village.

They had a village hand well but the water level had dropped dramatically and the water was dirty and polluted. Drinking it only brought sickness

Another friend wrote...my wife suffered from kidney disease and many of us became sick after we drank the water from this bore we had. The doctor told us that we must drink only the bottled water or clean water.

We used to go to another village to collect water. Some people could not walk to other villages and had to buy water from the water tankers but it was very expensive. Now we are so happy that we have this safe and clean water in our village.

But we see a way through their lack of hope and are bringing a message of love and practical help which is changing lives. But we need help and at the end of the financial year in Australia it’s the perfect time to join with us.

To continue bringing hope to these villages we need to partner with you. To install a safe water bore we need $2800. We’ve been told by donors and those who know the water industry that this is really economical. We have visited many villages where we have given water bores, and we’ve talked with tradesmen who are installing our bores.The impact is amazing.

Will you help by giving to this work which saves and restores lives. We need to turn the tap on for at least 12 more village bores this year.

To install each safe water bore, which goes to 120m deep so we connect to very fresh safe water, we need $AUD2,800

The other side of this double tragedy is education. We are now educating children in a third Child Development Centre. Thats a total of 160 children attending every day. To fund each Child Development Centre we need $1045 per month or $262 per week

Children deserve to be healthy and they want to learn, and thats what we're bringing solutions for.

You can make an even greater difference today. Donate to Heart for Kids ministry and impact lives with love, compassion, and hope. Your support can bring healing, empowerment, and transform communities.

Give generously and be a catalyst for change.

Safe water bores are currently being installed in 1 village per month.

That keeps between 1300 and 2000 children and family members safe.

We would love to do more.
