Charity book launch

Can you name a Winchester based charity that has collected over 1,300,000,000 litres of rainwater, helped over 1,730,000 people, worked in 1,800 villages for over 32 years in Rajasthan and Gujarat, India? That’s what WaterHarvest has achieved.


Formerly called Wells for India, the charity works with local partners overseas to catch the monsoon rain. Water tanks provide safer clean drinking water at home where it is needed. As a result, women and girls are freed from the daily drudgery of fetching water – a task which involves walking for up to 8 hours a day – the equivalent of 70,000 miles in a lifetime.


On Thursday 28th February at St Peter’s Pastoral Centre in Winchester, over seventy people attended the launch of WaterHarvest’s India director, Om Prakash Sharma, new book Wise Water Solutions in Rajasthan, written in collaboration with University of West of England.


They also enjoyed watching the documentary An Impartial Review of WaterHarvest which was generously made by the Matthew Good Foundation.
