Rain Water Harvesting Event

Our first experience to be a part of Rain water harvesting event started on June 19th 2008 at Mothi Nagar, Hyderabad. Mr. Vijay Ram from SAVE, invited us to be a part of the campaign to save water and to witness the construction of the rain water harvesting pits in the colony. It was great to see residents of the colony not only allowing RWH pits to be constructed at their premises but also participating in a small rally emphasizing the importance of water conservation. The best part of the event was the participation of young kids along with their parents as it gives hope of the future being in right hands.

Water Hyderabad

With the 10 lakh plantation drive coming to an end, our last one being at David Memorial Institutions,Yacharam; we involved ourselves in to water conservation efforts. After numerous meetings with several NGOs and the HMWS&SB board we started “Water Hyderabad”. Water Hyderabad, was an initiative of likeminded NGOs working towards bringing awareness on water conservation. This was an advocacy and awareness campaign that gave us the strength to endure the crisis of water scarcity by working as a pressure group on Government to strictly implement necessary laws and policies of Rain Water Harvesting ensuring water conservation in every home and bring awareness towards water conservation.

On the occasion of World Water Day, 22 March 2009 we launched the WATER HYDERABAD campaign by organizing water awareness walk from Mahatma Gandhi Statue, M.G Road to Swami Vivekananda Statue at Tank bund starting at 8am.

Nearly 500 volunteers participated in the walk and made it a grand success. The participants included Masab Tank Government school students, Vridhi, HARD, Prerna, FRF, Sayam Cheddam, Helpings hands for all, Save, Reddy charity, Right to walk org and our friends and supporters. The rally went on with slogans about the need of the hour and participants displayed placards, banners and paintings depicting the water conservation needs and spreading the message of water conservation. The best part of the rally was the participation of the students from Masab Tank Government School as they not only took their time to walk for the rally but also were inclined to make a difference.The walk concluded by forming a human chain pledging their support to conserve water.

Signature Campaign at Oracle

A three day campaign was organized within Oracle premises in Hyderabad. The permission to have the event organized was received with the help of Suhasini C who was working for Oracle and was active member of the Oracle Volunteers Club. The first day started with Vridhi volunteers setting up stalls for signature campaigns and carrying on with our water awareness campaign. We had signatures of many Oracle employees who showed their support for the cause. The second day was organized with Rain water harvesting models being demonstrated by our team and an official from HMWS&SB named Mustaq. We were lucky to have been offered assistance by HMWS&SB in spreading awareness about the importance of having a rain water harvesting structure or pits. The demonstration of the functioning of the RWH model caught a lot of attention and was appreciated by Oracle employees. The third day was also continued with the same demonstration that we had on the second day and were successful in spreading our message across. We thank HMWS&SB, Oracle and Vridhi volunteers in helping us spread the importance of water conservation.

Signature Campaign at More Supermarket

The campaign continued on 24th May 2009, with our volunteers Swapna,Lavanya & Madhuri taking their valuable time in setting up the stall in front of More supermarket at and taking the signature campaign forward. We not only took the signatures of the people showing their support towards water conservation efforts but also spread awareness of the depleting water resources and how one should step forward to conserve it. We gathered a lot of signatures and it formed an important part of the campaign to advise the government of the need of the hour. We thank More supermarket’s management to allow us in carrying out our campaign.

Signature campaign at NTR gardens and Jubilee hall, Nampally
