Title: Roof Water Collection Project and Water Conservation Training
This project trains people to prepare a pipe to direct rain water falling an the roof of their house to a water tank under the house. This collected water will help them in the summer days when there is a shortage of drinking water. To conserve underground water and maintain its level, monthly rallies and conferences are organized to educate the people about proper use of water, planting of trees and destruction of polyethylene. The protection of traditional water sources in villages of Banswara & Dungarput districts of Rajasthan is another aim. This project strives to build awareness among people regarding water conservation and to stop water misuse.
