Programs

Rainwater for Humanity's primary program consists of designing and building filtered rainwater storage reservoirs, mostly from locally available materials. Each storage unit is already projected to last twenty years, while we continue to improve the design and lower construction cost. We will also establish a training program in Kuttanad, Kerala, India to teach women about water vending business. Finally, we promote awareness of water scarcity worldwide with publicity campaigns. We partner with the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation, a local rural development NGO that assists the program on the field.
