Aamir Khan hopes Maharashtra to be drought-free in 5 years

by Vibhuti Gupta, Saturday, April 21, 2018

PK star Aamir Khan, who also leads NGO Paani Foundation, hopes Maharashtra to be drought-free in the next five year, so such organisations are not required anymore. 

Paani Foundation was set up in 2016 by the Satyamev Jayate team

The NGO aims to fight drought in rural Maharashtra by harnessing the power of communication to mobilize, motivate and train people in this mission.

On Friday, Aamir Khan visited the Symboisis institute, Pune to pin up call-to-action posters for students' participation in Shramdaan (labour donation) across villages fighting against water scarcity and drought situations.

"In five years from today, Maharashtra shouldn't need Paani Foundation. The more number of people join the cause, the bigger the movement will become. I believe it's the dream of us all that one day Maharashtra is drought-free and if we all dream of it, we all would have to do something about it to make it happen," Aamir said.

On Maharashtra Day, which falls on May 1, the Paani Foundation will host a ‘Mahashramdaan', where citizens, both urban and rural, will meet and work together for water abundance
