Aware that nearly half of all supplied water in India is lost due to leakage, we are determined to build up a mass movement that will not only focus on increasing awareness and minimizing wastage but also promote rainwater harvesting and the purification of recycled and contaminated water to make safe water accessible to all. Aware that nearly half of all supplied water in India is lost due to leakage, we are determined to build up a mass movement that will not only focus on increasing awareness and minimizing wastage but also promote rainwater harvesting and the purification of recycled and contaminated water to make safe water accessible to all. We are embarking on a global water conservation movement led by the empowered youth that will not only create awareness, but also start to improve lives immediately and provide an opportunity to learn about the global water crisis, local interventions and meaningful community service. The involvement of the future generations is primary to our mission and we have already tied-up with the Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India to offer certificates to participants in the water conservation and awareness campaign. We have also tied-up with several national and international organizations like The Climate Reality Project India, The Climate Reality Project Nepal, Green Tau Organization U.K., the Sanctuary Nature Foundation, to name a few, to help us make World Water Day one of the most visible and impactful events on the global environment calendar. On World Water Day 2016, Walk For Water had created an Indian World Record by organizing “The Biggest Walkathon” in over 10000 places in India and a record breaking ‘Human Chain’ connecting 1.2 million people in 1132 Walk For Water events that extended to over 302 kilometres in Hyderabad city.  Additionally, over 1.8 million people in 11963 locations spread around 42 countries took the “Water Pledge”, with participants in all the 7 continents, including Antarctica. Inspired by such overwhelming response, and the assured participation of over 225000 youth clubs registered with the Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan, various central and state government departments, panchayat bodies, municipalities, thousands of engineering, management, medical institutions, universities, schools, celebrities, self-help groups, youth clubs and community groups, we intend to create a bigger global impact on 22 March 2017, taking water conservation awareness to at least 5 percent of the world population and 25 percent of the Indian population through the multimedia water conservation campaign. We believe in practicing what we preach and till date our efforts have led to the restoration of 16800 dried-up borewells, installation of over 27000 roof-top rainwater harvesting structures and saved over 1233.4 million litres of water.

We believe we can inspire creative interventions from the student community and help create a new generation of social entrepreneurs. I welcome you to join us in this campaign and help us place India at the centre of a global "Blue Revolution". We are eager to forge a relationship with organizations across various sectors to make a dramatic impact on solving the water crisis that has engulfed vast parts of our planet.  These partnerships will help us plan and execute an impactful campaign that will not only create awareness, but also start to improve lives immediately. We at Walk For Water are committed to support you at every stage of planning and execution. We are promoting images of the attached Water Pledge with all stakeholders including farmers, laborers, health and sanitation workers, students, teachers, scientists, politicians, bureaucrats, sports stars, celebrities and others from all around the globe to create a buzz on social media. Our partner organizations have helped take the Water Pledge to millions of students in India already. Another mode of support is to get video messages of around one minute on climate and water.
