Making Drought a Memory

WOTR is a not-for-profit NGO founded in 1993 operating currently in five 6 Indian states – Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, and Orissa. Since its inception in 1993 WOTR has been in the forefront of mobilizing vulnerable communities in semi-arid and resource fragile regions to help themselves out of poverty by harvesting rainwater wherever it falls and regenerating the ecosystems they live in.

Making drought a memory introduces the bad situation in some indian villages because of the drought and the lack of water. In other cities for instance, new crops are growing and they have wells with enough water to face the drought season thanks to the watershed treatments.

WOTR aims to reduce poverty through mobilising the self help capacities of individuals and communities to regenerate the eco-spaces or watersheds they live in, harvest rain water wherever it falls, use it productively, undertake sustainable livelihoods and do whatever else it takes to get them out of poverty.
