Save the Rain works to end the water crisis through rain water harvesting, one village at a time. Rainwater harvesting is simple – it’s an electricity-free process to catch, store, clean and use the rain as a sustainable water supply. Sustainability is the key. All of the systems are built using local materials and local labor. That way the communities are fully capable to build, maintain, and fix their systems, and to teach the methods to others. The village elects a committee to oversee the care and sustainability of the project. Donors fund the projects, but the community owns the water resource and decides how to use the resource to best serve the people.
