Greetings from Paani Foundation (co-founded by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao in
early 2016 and run by the core team of Satyamev Jayate).

Hope you are doing well. We are delighted to share with you that we have
received a wonderful response to our ‘Chala Gaavi on 1st May!’ initiative
as a part of which thousands of people are expected to visit some of the
1,300+ villages that are participating in the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup
2017 from 8th April to 22nd May.

In the run-up to the competition, when we trained over 5,000 villagers from
30 talukas of Maharashtra on the science of watershed management at 22
training centres, we put together a weekly newsletter. If you would like to
go through it, please click here

Through our websites and Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, we invite you
to stay connected to our journey and to regular updates about the
absolutely remarkable work on building watershed structures that thousands
of villagers are doing every day in order to make their village
drought-free. You can also watch ‘Toofan Aalaya’, a TV show about this work
on eight channels every Saturday and Sunday.

In case you didn’t know, the pilot edition of the competition was held in
three talukas last year and won by Velu village from Satara. The 116
villages participating in the competition created an annual water storage
capacity of 1,368 crore litres of water, whose annual value is estimated at
Rs. 272 crores. Please watch our documentary film about the Satyamev Jayate
Water Cup 2016, ‘The Battle Against Drought’ at the below links if you
haven’t already.
