A Blue Mission
“We make a living by what we get, We make a life by what we give” Winston S. Churchill
Blue Hyderabad is an initiative by The Rainwater Project, in collaboration with SAHE (Society for Advancement of Human Endeavours). It was launched on the national platform aligning with the National Water Mission of the Central Jalshakti Ministry, Catch the Rain – Where it Falls, When it Falls.
Building Water Sustainable Cities
The city of Hyderabad has been divided into 98 watersheds. Hitec City is the first block where we are making efforts to conserve water and avoid urban floods. We are helped in this endeavour by the local community, government and non-government organisations, corporates, and academic institutions, concerned citizens and students, and funded from CSR initiatives and fundraisers. After demonstrating processes and results in these basins, The Rainwater Project intends to reach out to the other basins in the city and eventually build a water positive Hyderabad.
Its aim is to create awareness and promote rainwater harvesting and sustainable water management practices. For this purpose, we, empower the doers and activate champions, strategize communications, educate the youth to trigger the change for better water future., identify influencers and change makers, with action driven results.
Empower With Us
We have conducted action driven awareness webinars for residential communities, schools and colleges, corporates and institutions. We have reached out to almost 85,000 students so far and counting.
Being Water+ is a course designed to enable students to understand and explore the importance of water management. It teaches them different methods of rainwater harvesting, explained with the help of inspiring real life case studies. The aim of the course is to create awareness amongst the youth and the future generations.
A workshop was conducted in collaboration with GHMC and JNTU to train 50 plumbers by industry experts. At the completion of the workshop, they were provided with certificates signed by the Zonal Commissioner.
