Friday Hoyden: Ram Rati

I love this picture – go read her story.

A middle aged woman with dark hair wearing a sari and a jacket over the top poses by a well pump that she maintains

Water, Wells, and One Wonderful Woman: Ram Rati beams with excitement and confidence. “Now, where ever I go I get respect. Surrounding villages, whichever handpumps fail, they call me.”

With the aid of the non-profit organisation Adventure Project, Ram Rati has repaired more than 300 broken wells and used that income to buy her own property where she now employs others.
