    Israelis face a severe freshwater shortage.
    They rely heavily on recycled water for
    non-drinking water uses, including irrigation.
    Increasing droughts and diminishing rainfall
    make water conservation crucial.

Jerusalem Foundation

The Jerusalem Foundation's School Rainwater Harvesting Program conserves water for schools with help from students and the surrounding community. Each participating school receives a harvesting system to capture rainfall that would otherwise be lost. In each school, a group of 15-30 students participate in a special leadership program to teach sustainable practices and plan school activities. During the rainy season, the harvesting system may supply up to 90% of the school’s water use.
