What is Paani?
Paani is a nonprofit founded in 2017 that works with community partners and institutions in the United States and Pakistan to drive sustainable, evidence-based interventions that primarily focus on alleviating clean water inaccessibility, advocating for gender equity, and addressing a variety of pressing health disparities.
For those that are asking 😊

Paani is a nonprofit that is entirely volunteer run, so every single dollar you donate goes directly towards supporting people + you get photos

According to a report by IMF, Pakistan will be the most water-stressed country in the near future. A group of Pakistani-American students from the University of Michigan came up with the idea and work on the cause voluntarily. They make sure each, and every penny goes towards the foundation. Up till now, they have been able to install 1,000 wells in the region.

True! It is difficult to understand how much this means to little kids that watch the channel.

That’s true! They barely ever get any positive representation
Ok this is so cute because Muslim people get no type of representation everyone deserves well wishes for their holidays https://t.co/YJ2ZG7JX7R
