Rain Centre to tackle water issues set up

Madurai-based start-up firm Rainstock, a social venture that was started to solve water problems, has now set up a ‘Rain Centre’ in the temple town. It will address all water-related queries, help a person understand rainwater harvesting and other methods of conserving water.

“We have registered this as an NGO arm of our start-up Rainstock. Before starting this centre, we visited a similar centre in Chennai. We also met experts in this field from Bengaluru and parts of northern India,” said K. Sakthivel, founder and CEO of Rainstock. During this process, Mr. Sakthivel and his college professor V.S. Arvind (also a co-founder) realised that there were very few experts who could teach people about harvesting water.

“That is how the idea of setting up this centre came about,” said Mr. Sakthivel .
