On World Water Day we will be launching our Public Campaign – “Sewage Roko – Clean Ganga Now!”.
It will be inaugurated with two events. Firstly the annual “Human Chain”, an event organised by the Sankat Mochan Foundation (SMF) each World Water Day, 22 March. The Human Chain will extend along the religious bathing areas of Varanasi from Assi Ghat to Adikeshav Ghat. People are invited to assemble at the riverfront 7am-8am. Following the Human Chain there will be a Public Forum at Rajendra Prasad Ghat from 8am-10am.
Secondly a high level public meeting will be held on the 21st of March at 5pm in the evening with Chief Guest Honourable Justice Markandey Katju, Chair of Press Council of India, New Delhi, launching the campaign to the media, government officials, local leaders and civil society leaders.
This World Water Day the Sankat Mochan Foundation are asking people to do three things for Ganga:
- Attend the World Water Day Human Chain in Varanasi (or like Sewage Roko – Clean Ganga Now on facebook if they are not able to come in person).
- Sign the Sewage Roko – Clean Ganga NOW Petition and ask their friends to sign it as well.
- Stop personal actions that pollute Ganga such as throwing rubbish and ask others to do the same.
If you would like to volunteer during or after this event please let us know by filling out this form!
