Our goal is to ensure that both of these become the common occurrence in everyday life, as opposed to the lack thereof, as this is resulting in deplorable living conditions throughout India. Each year, around 37.7 million people are affected by waterborne diseases (viral hepatitis, cholera, jaundice, and typhoid are examples) and about 1.5 million children die from diarrhoea.
In addition, India is the largest user of groundwater in the world and is being threatened by rapidly depleting groundwater supplies. There is an urgent need to recharge groundwater, especially by farmers who are its biggest consumers. Our emphasis is to encourage groundwater recharging and to revive rainwater harvesting techniques.
