It started with just one student, Manvith Lobo. Over the summer, he was trained by his friend Bhakti. She inspired him to go on and train more than 100 people, earning his Gold badge like she did.

Thanks to his energy and enthusiasm, his school took notice and signed up the entire Student Council for training by Water Alliance.

Under the guidance of the Head of Primary, Council members conducted their own trainings to ensure each student understands the importance of proper hand washing and saving water. Some 50 student leaders brought the program to 500 primary school pupils!

In his words, Manvith says: “Water Alliance made me believe that I can be a change maker. I’m elated to earn my Gold Badge! Sustainable living starts with a small effort by each one of us following responsible water behaviour.”
