From one well to a mighty river. It all started with one well in the village of Chikani and has moved on to the mighty Ganga in Rishikesh.
TransformingWaters is the PRESENCE Foundation’s fledgeling program to restore, revive and rejuvenate water sources, be they wells or rivers.

“Quote!”

Maharishikaa Preeti

The story of this well in Chikani is the story of the water crisis in India.
Before tourism came to this pristine lick of land on the Arabian sea, this water in this well was plentiful throughout the year, with water levels lowering by a maximum of about twenty feet in the hot summer.
With tourism and Mumbai’s holiday-makers, came water mismanagement and unchecked water use, with hotel borewells further down the slope of this sea-side village greedily sucking water out of the subterranean streams that supply this very well – to feed long showers, western flush toilets, smooth lawns and swimming pools.

The TransformingWaters project first began in 2011 with a project called Jalasya Jeevanam (Water is Life) to collect the funds to restore, revive and rejuvenate this well.

Today, we are moving from this one well to the mighty Ganga.
