Our Mission

Water is vital for life on earth, yet millions still do not have access to clean water. “Water is life” and we are determined to improve lives by increasing awareness, minimizing wastage, promoting rainwater harvesting and the purification of recycled and contaminated water.

Water is our religion and we intend to realize our dream to place India at the center of a global “Blue Revolution.”

Walk For Water is an organization that runs behind ‘numbers’; numbers as in ‘lives improved and bettered’ are definitely important to us. We strongly believe that the only solution to the water crisis is by spreading awareness and it is possible only by increasing these ‘numbers’. As an NGO, ‘happy lives and happier societies’ is our first focus.


50% by 2050

Why 2020?

We can stop the sixth mass extinction if we protect approximately 50% of the 846 ecoregions that provide habitat for all of Earth's biodiversity. That means finding leaders and organizations around the world willing to align exisiting efforts around protecting and interconnecting nature in the region.
