Imagine a world where everyone has access to plenty of water, crops grow freely – green and healthy and everyone has clean abundant water to drink.

That’s what Sikandar Meeranaik did as he looked around his dried up village and asked himself that driving question.

“What can I do to make change? How can I create a better life for my children and all the children around me?”

And his answer came with the understanding that if the villagers and farmers had access to an abundant supply of water their lives would be enhanced in many ways. If they had plenty of clean water they could irrigate their crops, water their livestock and would lead better and healthier lives. As they grew more crops with greater variety, their income would also grow. They would be empowered to educate their children, have better health care, to lead more sustainable lives and would have no need to leave their families and village to seek work in the cities.

This is his story – but it is not only his story – through his vision already more than 
four hundred farming families now have a new story.
A story of hope, of an abundance of food, and the possibilities of a better life 
opening before them – given by a bountiful water supply.

To date, we have implemented more than 1130 borewell recharge projects – 60 rooftop water harvesting projects,  200 water storage tanks, with more than 30 urban projects and many rural projects.
