Water Conservation

Inspired by ‘Earth Day’ which is on the 22nd April each year, the charity has encouraged the local people and the children from the charity's schools to meet on the 22nd of each month.

These days have been very productive. For example, we have revived the tradition, which had largely died out, of the digging of local ponds (called johads) to raise the water table by conserving rain water; a tube well now provides fresh water.
