Our Work

Increasing water security for Indian women in Rajasthan

At WomenServe, we work every day to empower women and girls by increasing access to water security, health and hygiene, education, and economic development. We choose our primary initiatives and partnerships based on our commitment to nourish women’s minds, bodies, Spirits, and communities.

Why Rajasthan

Today our work is focused on Western Rajasthan, India. Like many parts of the world, the women and girls in Western Rajasthan face both environmental and cultural oppression due to water insecurity.

Our Social Impact

We believe both our work and our results matter. We are committed to making a tangible difference in the lives of women and girls we serve and, therefore, are obsessively committed to tracking our results.

We are proud of what we have accomplished in the last decade and confident about the work ahead of us.

Testimonials

“I make an automatic monthly donation to WomenServe because I have seen first hand the tremendous change access to a convenient clean source of water can make in the life of those living in the Western Rajasthan Desert. Recurring donations help provide efficiency with a steady flow of income, essential for budgeting, program implementation, and hiring staff. Being able to anticipate cash flow in advance helps WomenServe to succeed in its goal of increasing access to water, education, health, and economic development in the area where their work is focused.
Automatic monthly donating is also good for me, as I don’t have to think about it, or do anything – it just happens. It works well for my budget, as there is less impact than a large one time deduction. I can’t go to India to participate in digging a taanka, but the next best thing is helping to fund the work that provides, clean water access, bicycle scholarships, education, and skill development. WomenServe inspires me, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help make a difference by donating each month.”

“Growing up in a third world country, I have seen firsthand the oppression women and girls face just because they were born female. Giving these women and girls a chance to be educated and financially independent helps them grow as individuals and creates opportunities for future generations. The impact of a small donation can change the world. I feel honored to be part of that change.”
