Field Notes

Thanks to our local partner Jal Bhagirathi Foundation, support from the surrounding community, and your generosity, 13 people in India have access to clean and safe water!

You helped fund a rainwater harvesting system for a Community in India, implemented by our local partner Jal Bhagirathi Foundation. We rely on the expertise of local partners like Jal Bhagirathi Foundation to choose the best solution for each unique situation. In this case, Jal Bhagirathi Foundation’s thorough understanding of how to implement effective, sustainable water projects in their area led them to choose a rainwater harvesting system.

Rainwater generally meets drinking water standards. The process of evaporation and condensation naturally remove any particles in the water, like pathogens and dirt, making it safe to drink. Catchment areas can be made from materials like plastic tarps or concrete. A roof can also serve as a catchment area. Rainwater is then channeled into a vessel to be safely stored until ready to be used.

Along with implementing water projects, our local partners also facilitate sanitation and hygiene initiatives to help promote everyone’s long-term health. These initiatives are often championed by community members themselves, who work hard to create positive change within their Community.

Clean water means education, income, and health—especially for women and girls. It truly changes everything. Thank you for funding clean water and transforming futures for 13 people in India!
