They use waste plastic bottles as cost free bricks to build these rain water harvesting tanks that are quite durable. The BUVAD team co-funds needy women with materials they cannot raise locally, for them to construct rainwater harvesting tanks of 2000 liters capacity.
The aim is to empower women and their children whom are the key water fetchers in their households with cheaply available water at their households, to overcome the dirty water related diseases challenge. Currently, water is fetched from far valleys and other distant isolated places which have also culminated into other problems like; rape, time delays, defilement, snake bites, motorcycle accidents etc.
