Ride for life is a student run non-profit organization established in August, 2017. It aims to provide the youth of Pakistan with a platform where they can play their part in overcoming the major problems of Pakistan like water scarcity in a number of ways. The main goals that Ride for Life aims for are as follow:
• Providing safe drinking water to the students of under-privileged schools.
• Spreading awareness regarding water conservation and the problems caused due to polluted water, among the youth of our country.
• Preventing Pakistan from being a water-stressed country by spreading awareness related to water conservation and the importance of fresh and pure water.
Fresh, clean water is a limited resource. Occurrences such as droughts further limit access to clean and fresh water, meaning people need to take steps to reduce water use and save as much of it as possible. In some areas of the world, access to water is limited due to contamination. People who have access to fresh water can take steps to limit their use of water to avoid waste. These steps taken to conserve water, especially in a water-stressed country like Pakistan, ensure that water could be distributed to where the supply of fresh and clean water is limited. Less supply of water in different areas of Pakistan is a major problem of its own, but the consumption of contaminated water by the population due to the less availability of safe water is another major problem. Many water borne diseases are spreading rapidly in Pakistan, and someone has to take a stand to spread awareness to conserve water and as well as about the harmful effects of polluted water. Project Quench the Thirst is started to achieve aims like these. We aim to provide fresh clean water in as many under privileged schools as possible plus educate and make people aware of the disadvantaged of consumption of unclean and contaminated water. And also to conserve the limited water in the country so that a major chunk of the population could receive the basic necessity of their life!
