The stories in this booklet are about more than successfully implemented projects in rural Africa. None of the successes portrayed here would have been possible without the commitment, spirit and hard work of local people who decided that their lives deserved to be improved. Men and women, young and old, hard workers and entrepreneurs – these are our rainwater champions. Often, the champions portrayed here are part of a community that works together and supports each other. Self-help groups often play an important role in rainwater harvesting or buffering interventions at the landscape level. Each story features an individual or a group, who actively made use of the opportunities presented to them. Sometimes they were offered financial support or training, sometimes the community worked together, and sometimes individuals just worked tirelessly by themselves. In all cases, it becomes clear that without the effort, intelligence and perseverance of the champions, there would be no rainwater harvesting success.
