“We have to address the issues which prevent clean cities, clean rivers, regular, uninterrupted supply of essentials like water and electricity. ” – Narendra Modi

The Activist is not the person who says the Water is Dirty. The Activist is the person who Cleans Up the River. Clean, healthy rivers reduce human health risk and improve quality of life. Less trash increases recreational activities along rivers— clean and safe walk and run trails for the community. As recreational activities increase, tourists will be attracted. Thus, affecting both the economy and well-being of the community. Hence our social event this time was about volunteering and cleaning the river
