Tarun Bharat Sangh is a non-governmental organization in Rajasthan and directed by Rajendra Singh. Known as “waterman of India”, he won the Stockholm Water Prize, an award known as “the Nobel Prize for water”, in 2015. Tarun Bharat Sangh (TBS) has been instrumental in helping villagers take charge of water management in their semi-arid area through the use of johad, rainwater storage tanks, check dams and other time-tested as well as path-breaking techniques. Starting from a single village in 1985, over the years TBS has helped build over 8,600 johads and other water conservation structures to collect rainwater for the dry seasons, has brought water back to over 1,000 villages and revived five rivers in Rajasthan, Arvari, Ruparel, Sarsa, Bhagani and Jahajwali.
