Rain centre at Sayla (Gujarat)

The Sayla Rain centre is located in Surendra Nagar, a drought prone district of North Gujarat. Scanty and uncertain rainfall make livelihood difficult for local people including agricultural activities. Even availability of drinking water remains a major issue for people. The rain center houses information in the form of panels, working models, artificial rainfall, water quality testing laboratory. It is actually a rural knowledge resource center on rainwater harvesting and water management and provides information on how rainfall can be harvested in semi arid condition. It also provides training to the local people and outsiders both Government and Non Government staff on similar issues. The centre helps local peoples to articulate traditional wisdom and outside world knowledge to solve the water crisis in the region.
