What We're Hearing

Where Springs Return...

A story of parched lands, barren hills, dying cattle and dried up springs giving way to thick lush forests.

IT'S BEEN FOUR DECADES SINCE WE STARTED

From mobilising indigenous communities to fight for their rights to partnering with them to build better lives, our legacy is of a commitment to advancing equity and dignity for the poorest.

GIVE

Your smallest contribution can bring water, increase incomes, build toilets or light up homes in the remotest villages in India.
Choose your cause.

Our volunteers have got clean water to villages, digitised schools, filmed stories from the field and much more.
Come, be a part of the team.
