The objective is to train people on Rainwater Harvesting techniques, allowing them to use these simple and low cost means to provide a water supply in their regions. They will then see how useful rainwater can be, especially in countries with marked dry and wet seasons. Once they know more about the technical aspects, they can put into practice what they have learnt and be able to train or inform other people. The goal is to increase the global number of rainwater harvesters and to bring solutions to water shortages in the field.
