The Swarovski Waterschool India Program is a five-day participatory learning program which motivates school children from grades six to eight to explore their relationship with the environment, especially with water. These take place in 75 primary and secondary schools in Bharatpur City, 36 villages in Bharatpur District, and – since 2013 – in schools surrounding the Ranthambhore National Park. In addition, children from both urban and rural schools take part in joint workshops at the National Chambal Sanctuary.
The successful implementation of the Waterschool in Keoladeo National Park has led the Rajasthan Forest Department to show genuine interest in replicating the program and to identifying the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve as a new location to carry out the Waterschool program.
