A matka is an Indian clay pot traditionally used to store and keep water cold
Delhi is thirsty. I am using matkas to provide drinking water to poor people. I have developed and set up more than 15 Matka stands with over 80 matkas all over my neighbourhood in South Delhi . The stands have a sign with my personal telephone number so people can notify me when a matka is empty, and a bench where there’s space to sit. The matkas need around 2000 litres a day in the summer months. I maintain their water levels and the stands daily with my van (see below). The water was originally supplied by a school nearby and two kind souls. But now I have been able to get water directly from Delhi Jal Board free of change.
