Bjelkeman's travel notes

Travels with the cloud in my pocket.

Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR)

Today we travelled to Pune, in the state of Maharashtra. Pune is about three hours drive from Mumbai. In Pune we are visiting the Watershed Organisation Trust. We first met the executive director, Dr Marcella D’Souza, and the co-founder of the trust, Crispino Lobo, at the World Water Forum conference in Istanbul last year. We got an overview of WOTR’s work and then travelled to their Darewadi Training Centre and also visited an ongoing watershed project with a tribal population in the nearby hills.
