Nabati village, India-
Pupils cheered, women in the village applauded, and a clean stream of water flowed out of a sparkling set of steel faucets connected to a newly installed water filter in a dusty village in northern India
Nabati is located 55 kilometers east of the capital, New Delhi, but until Wednesday access to clean drinking water was a dream for villagers when the filtration plant began to operate at a rural school.
India is the most populous country in the world without clean water.
According to the United Nations Children\'s FundN.
Children\'s institutions of nearly 78 million Indians
About 5 per cent of the country.
Population 3 billion
Contaminated water sources must be treated, or water must be purchased at a high price.
Lack of clean water leads to stomach problems, diarrhea and increased number of deaths due to waterborne diseases.
About 140,000 children die from diarrhea every year in India, the third of 315,000 children worldwide. The US-based non-
The planetary water Foundation, a government organization that has already set up a filtration system in Nabati, chose to launch the filtration system in March 22 and be marked World Water Day globally. The non-
The profit plan is to provide 24,000 people with clean drinking water through 24 projects in five countries on this day.
School staff and villagers in Nabati say getting clean water will change their lives.

Disease spread rapidly.
\"Earlier, the children used to drink dirty water.
This is the groundwater extracted from the drilling.
Just use the hand pump.
They used to get sick and don\'t go to school, \"said Vinod Sharma, president of Nabati Brahmin International College.
\"We expect the attendance to reach 100.
The water is also available to the residents of the village, \"he said.
A filtration system is installed in schools to teach children basic hygiene, such as washing their hands before meals and after using the toilet.
In many ways, the water crisis in Nai Basti reflects the severe water shortage facing the country.
The villagers were forced to dig pits as the rivers and streams dried up.
The increasing number of wells and water pumps contaminated groundwater.
However, the extraction of groundwater for decades to meet their daily needs has led to a sharp decline in the national groundwater level, threatening environmental and human disasters.
India has long faced water shortages.
As the climate changes, the annual monsoon rains in China are becoming more and more unstable, and traditional reservoirs are also reduced.
The situation in the city is worse, where water levels have plummeted hundreds of feet, and people rely entirely on tankers that supply water at high prices.
In major cities, this led to the creation of a powerful water \"mafias\", which controls the water supply of the community.
Residents of Nabati foresee a healthier future with new clean water.
\"What I am worried about is that my children often get sick by drinking unfiltered water.
They are lagging behind in the study of the missing school, \"said housewife Jyoti, who used a name.
\"This is no longer a problem,\" she said with a smile . \"
