1st system completion marks the beginning of more reiterations
By Christina - Initiator
The system has been completed and the first drop of rainwater has trickled down the catchment area, sped along the gutter, squeezed through gravels sand and charcoal, rolled into the PVC pipe and entered the ferrocement tank.
The journey of this raindrop is made possible by the perspirations, brain juice and hard-earned income of people across the world. It will be used by 20 families, bringing clean water to about 80 villagers. However, we are not in the position to celebrate yet. This is the beginning of trillions more of raindrops that need to be harvested.
With that note, the following tasks are yet to be accomplished in the coming months-
Reiterations of rainwater harvesting prototypes
Hiring of a full time local Program Director
Building an organization structure to ensure accountability on the impacts we held ourselves against
Clarifying Rainwater’s visions and strategies
Aligning stakeholders’ values with Rainwater’s
There’s a saying “spectators can see the race clearly, but the athletes’ views are clouded.” We appreciate any thoughts especially on appropriate technology design, hydrology & engineering, and setting up the organization structure of a start-up social enterprise.
