With a billion people, India is grappling with freshwater scarcity. We depend on the monsoons for most of our water and yet fail to harvest and harness rainwater. However, on the outskirts of Mumbai is an unassuming village; a fine example of Leadership in action.
Led by a feisty group of rural women, this village is a story of grit, determination and perseverance. A community led watershed development project that has helped increase the groundwater level in less than a decade.

Students will meet these women, tour the place, discuss and debate freshwater issues as a challenge and an opportunity for action and learn what it takes to be the change you want to see in this world.

Programme Objectives
  • To connect students with global, national and regional freshwater issues & challenges.
  • To learn about community led water and soil conservation initiatives at the grass-root level.
