Mangalore 23rd July: Training on Watershed Management was jointly organized by the Eco Club of Kittel Memorial High School, Gorigudda & Samanvaya Mangalore on July 22, 2008 at the school hall. The Director of Samanvaya, Mangalore Rev. Dr Ronald Cutinha was the resource person.

“Spring water and rains are the gifts from God and the wealth of nature.  If we dam all the rivulets and streams flowing through the Dakshina Kannada district and see that not a drop of water reaches the sea, and use this water sparingly for the needs of human beings, animals and for agriculture, we can chase the specter of drought and famine from this district.  Along with this, affore station will help in the conservation of soil and water. There are institutions to train people in various fields and people have all the amenities except for water which has become scarce.  This God-given gift is wasted, eroding fertile soil as it flows towards the sea.  It is depressing to note that there are no institutions to educate people to harvest rainwater, to collect and conserve water, the elixir of life.  Therefore, it is imperative that education on conservation must be included in the curriculum, to conserve water and make the country prosperous.” said Rev. Dr Ronald Cutinha during the training session.

Slides showing the preparation of soak pits, collection of roof water, construction of bunds and vented dams and of different models of rainwater harvesting helped the participants understand water conservation methods fully.

Mr Raghunath welcomed, and also proposed vote of thanks. 165 students took part in this training programme along with school staff.
