Maasai Rainwater Harvesting


The general picture of Africa is as a vast, dry continent, but overall it actually has more water resources per capita than Europe.

Scientists found that enough rain falls in some African nations to supply six or seven times the current populations need. However, most of Africa’s water comes in bursts and is rapidly swept away or never collected. A Maasai community have demonstrated how rainwater harvesting has transformed the lives in a drought stricken region of Kenya.
