The Battle for Water – Drought story from Marathwada

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.

The Battle for Water is a short film of Kasarwadi in Aurangabad district of Marathwada region that has stayed resilient through the drought. Inspite of receiving less than 200mm of rain in 2012, the village has water in its wells… while Bantakali 2 kms away battles its water troubles day in and day out.

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.
