Water Literacy Project

Water Literacy Project

India is ranked #8 out of all the countries in the world that most need clean water. In India women and girls bear the brunt of collecting water and water supply (walking many miles back and forth). This can drastically alter female school attendance. Volunteers can help provide educational and technical intervention to help local communities learn how to use and maintain equipment, implement basic water conservation techniques and change the way water is used. Volunteers can also work on many awareness projects by going to organizations, schools, and local communities to spread water issues and solutions.


Volunteers can get involved in:

  • Working alongside a team of water and environmental experts
  • Create awareness of water issues
  • Implement conservation technology into homes, villages, offices, and more
  • Learn about rainwater harvesting, urban and rural rainwater harvesting, bore-well recharging, and recycling of used water
  • Help save India’s precious water for both it’s urban and rural population
