Promoting the Rights of Women in the Rae Bareli District, India
Promoting the Rights of Women in the Rae Bareli District, India - Project
People living in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh are some of the poorest and most vulnerable in India. A lack of adequate health services has meant that many women die in childbirth. Infant mortality rates are high. Poor maintenance of the public water supply has resulted in a water crisis, which affects the availability of safe water for drinking and irrigation for crop growing. Nutrition is poor since agricultural yields are low and disease is rife because of contaminated sources of water.
