Mission Statement

"By building rainwater harvesting structures and training women to be the entrepreneurs, Rainwater for Humanity harvests rain to improve community health and empower women in Kuttanad, India.

Description

Rainwater for Humanity is a student-driven group comprised of students from Brown and RISD. The goal of the project is to serve a local population of over 700,000 with clean drinking water by capturing rainfall in the State of Kerala in India. At present, more than 80% of the people in Kuttanad rely on contaminated canal water for their daily water requirements. This project aspires to reengineer the rainwater harvesting structures to make them more durable and affordable. In addition, training programs will be set up to enable women to be the entrepreneurs of such rainwater harvesting structures.
