SAVE WATER-EACH DROP MATTERS| RC-19/23 | 2023-10-30 - 2023-11-11 | SOC/EDU| Age: 18 - 99

Water is a precious resource. Despite having good rainfall in this area people still face serious problem during non-monsoon months. For their needs, people are dependent on natural springs and streams. Due to neglect of these water sources, people face hardship and quite often suffer from water borne diseases. RUCHI is making its best to save every drop of water to meet their needs. Poor quality of water leads to serious health problems.

Work: Since every drop of water is precious, volunteers will work on water conservation work as well as educating people on WASH component. The creative volunteers may develop relevant education materials and all will have opportunities to be involved with physical construction/renovation works on sites. Similarly new ideas on water conservation for irrigation and environmental sanitation will be generated and put to practice for sustained food production in this agro based economy. Time permitting; volunteers may also be involved in cleaning existing water bodies and renovation of structures. During monsoon and winter rains these structures receive silt from upstream which reduces the storage affecting ground water recharge. The work will desilt/renovate the structures for effective reservoir of water.
