Samiha Sharma
Member (India)

Being born in a village of North India where mountain ranges and rivers are the main attraction, I always see that some visitors never understand their responsibility towards keeping the area clean and better for future generations. The pollution here in Delhi motivated me to get involved in something which can help in sustainable development. I am blessed to be a part of this river project.

Prabhav Narang
Fall 2022 Intern (India) 

The fondest memories of my childhood are those of spending my summer vacations at the banks of the Ganges River with my family. I remember the river being calming and its natural beauty therapeutic- countless days being spent frolicking on the riverbank, observing the ebbs and flows of the majestic river. My grandmother used to say every river tells a story- of adventure, of passion, of wonder.
