Training on Watershed Management | Satyamev Jayate Water Cup 2017

Our preparations for Satyamev Jayate Water Cup 2017 are on in full swing! Since 4th February, over 10,000 villagers are being trained on the science of watershed development at 19 training centres that have been specially set up by Paani Foundation.

In November and December 2016, we conducted many training programmes for taluka co-ordinators and technical and social trainers who will work with the team towards making Water Cup 2017 an impactful and joyful experience for all those who will be a part of it.

From 7th January to 14th January 2017, our trainers conducted day-long workshops primarily for college students in the 30 talukas where the competition will be held from 8th April to 22nd May. Check out pictures from these training programmes here.

In March 2016, several hundred women, men and youth from 162 villages applied to undergo training on watershed management and leadership skills facilitated by Paani Foundation. We set up three training centres – in Nalawadewadi, Hiware and Hiware Bazar – for the villagers from Warud taluka in Amravati district in Vidarbha, Ambajogai taluka in Beed district in Marathwada and Koregaon taluka in Satara in western Maharashtra to receive intensive training.

One of the goals of the four-day training programme was to equip the villagers to participate in Satyamev Jayate Water Cup, a competition aimed to generate a people’s movement in watershed management.

Check out some videos and pictures about the training programmes below. We believe that our amazing participants are going to become tomorrow’s Water Warriors and play a big role in making their village drought-free! Write to us at to know how you can support them.
