From Bob Durston
Thanks to Bob for this update from Wells for India in the 30th year of the charity's activities. There is an opportunity to learn more about the work of Wells for India, a current appeal, and to download the latest edition of WaterWise magazine by using the buttons at the end of the article.
The new issue of our bi-annual magazine, WaterWise, is out now!
In this our 30th Anniversary edition, we celebrate having harvested 1.3 billion litres of water, working in 1,562 villages and with 1.6 million people.
We have profiled our specialist partner, Tarun Bharat Sangh (TBS), based in the foothills of the Aravalli Mountain Range of Rajasthan. TBS was founded more than 40 years ago by students and professors from the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, to promote rural education.
Wells for India and TBS began working together in 2014 on an ambitious project partnership, co-funded by the local community in the Sarsa river catchment. This water and livelihood project has proved so successful that a second project is now planned, starting in late Spring this year.
Font of Knowledge appeal
We've also highlighted our Font of Knowledge appeal, which seeks to protect and preserve the wisdom of the community by looking after the elders. While expensive polluted water causes poverty, sickness and death, our water capture structures, called taankas, will provide safer drinking water.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Wells for India team
