What we do

At WaterHarvest, we believe that rainfall is an incredible, sustainable source of water that should not be wasted.

Across the drylands of India, people have developed a profound understanding of water and a wealth of wisdom concerning its management. Centuries of innovation have produced a variety of traditional and modern water harvesting structures that capture the sporadic rainfall during the monsoon season and put it to life-transforming use all year round.

Working with local non-governmental organisations who each share our vision and work in the most remote areas, we use and adapt these traditional water harvesting techniques to construct a number of different types of water harvesting structures, each dependant on the physiography and topography of the region, the extent of the rainfall and the purpose they are designed to serve. Our partners are all committed to grassroots participation and transparency in all operations.

How we do it

Primarily, our work can be divided into three sections: rain water harvesting to provide clean drinking water, rain water harvesting to improve livelihoods and rain water harvesting to help the environment.
