Tarun Bharat Sangh and Rajendar Singh started a massive campaign to spread awareness of traditional water harvesting structures in order to restore the water resources of arid Rajasthan. The aim was to popularize the use of such traditional structures across the country.

Read about the account of Rajender Singh’s experiences during the first few days. These experiences are important because they formed the foundation of what is today known as the Rashtriya Jal Biradari, which has conducted a year long Rashtriya Jal Chetna Yatra.

The Rashtriya Jal Biradari has been concerned with water issues. The Jal Biradari has been fighting for the cause of water for the past few years. Even after the declaration of the National Water Policy on April 1st, 2002 not many people have reacted. Therefore the Jal Biradari has taken up this responsibility to fight for this cause and to create mass movement regarding water conservation all over the country.
