Meet Marta Vanduzer, She Build Toilets And Roads In Rural India With Her Own Money.

35 years old Marta Vanduze experienced childhood in Boston and was living in New York City for 10 years before moving to India in 2012. What’s rousing and exceptional about her?

In two villages of Uttar Pradesh, Raebareli and Amethi, Marta has built 82 low-cost evapotranspiration toilets in homes and 1 in a school, one 10 feet wide & 400 feet long road which is one of the area’s first permeable roads, and also carried out many other projects in the fields of education, health care and infrastructure (food, water, power, transport). And all these with her personal money from the pocket. Surprisingly, all these at 1/3rd of the cost of similar governmental projects in these villages.

In our hour-long discussion, Marta shared progressively about herself and her enthusiastic caring undertaking “Better Village, Better World”. She was a Ph.D. student where life was more centered around classrooms and her books.

I spent my 20s thinking and working for social change from a desk, as a researcher, and at a policy level. These past few years, working with my hands, seeing what has been made at the end of the day is it’s own, is an incredibly special reward. The contribution made from a day’s work is clear. I first came to India in 2004 for a book project; it was an honor and tremendous privilege to learn from some of India’s leading minds. Years later, knowing I wanted to develop this idea, I thought India would be the perfect place“, says Marta.

Like you, I was also curious to know why Marta has come all the way from America to build toilets and roads in the Indian villages. “I could do next to no back home contrasted with what I am doing and can do, here in India because of the dollar esteem. India offers me the chance to contact individuals’ lives in a lot more prominent scale. So I simply gathered my sacks and moved. I feel it’s superfluous where, however as long as I can do my bit of commitment to make this world a superior spot to live in, I think my activity is done”, she says with all her energy.

On asking how much she has spent on these developmental work so far, she was very reluctant to answer. “I don’t want to reveal that part of the story. Let that number be with me. I feel my purpose will be lost if I answer that question to anyone. What’s important to me is whether my work is impacting the lives of the people around here or not“, she answered with a lot of positive vibes. I am sure, the impact of the work she is doing will last much longer, even after she is gone from here someday.
