Reshmi had made a video on the need of a hand-pump in Ambatari village school in Chatra, Jharkhand. The school has been running for more than 10 years and yet, no hand pump had been installed even in the vicinity.
After the video was made, Reshmi made an application and submitted to the block officer. The community joined her in her initiative and finally after 8 months, the school got a hand-pump. With access to clean water for drinking and cooking, both the children and the community are much happier now.
This impact was made possible with the help of the block education officer, people of this community and those who took action in support of Reshmi's cause to provide children access to clean water. Reshmi thanks everyone with all her heart and appeals to continue extending your support.

In this video of UPS Manwan Awoora school, Kupwara, Kashmir, the community correspondent Pir Azhar shows us that there are nine classes for 250 students, and due to lack of space, the lower primary classes are held outside in the open. Also the school has only 7 teachers.
