WE ARE DETERMINED TO CONSERVE WATER.
780 million people across the globe do not have access to clean water (UN Water, 2013). 200 children die every hour across the globe owing to unsafe drinking water (Blue Planet network). This is the face of current water crisis. One entity responsible for this state is man. His long standing for granted attitude is the root of the problem. In the wake of the global water crisis, for more than a decade now, Sanrakshan through its unique water workshops, sensitizing men, women and children on water issues and providing them an eye to view their own actions in correlation with the global water condition. We focus on training water ambassadors who lead awareness campaigns and in process they change their actions themselves. Today these men, women and children are themselves leading the water conservation action in various parts of the country. They are the torch bearers of a water- wise future.

Sanrakshan means conservation. Conservation is to protect, save and preserve that which is depleting fast.  In the wake of the persisting environmental crisis, global leaders are supporting the cause of conservation; Water conservation to meet water crisis, forest conservation to check deforestation, energy conservation to meet energy crisis. But environment continues to be plundered and the cause of conservation remains defeated.

His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji, avisionary, leading the mission of World peace, redefines the cause of conservation. He says, “The cause of nature conservation will find its completeness only in the conservation of the fading human- nature relationship.”

Conservation cannot be sustained merely by educating and sensitizing individuals for the cause. Rather it demands the re- establishment of permanent bond of compassion between an individual and nature. Today, his holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji , is establishing this permanent connection by bestowing practical realization of the innate connection between human beings and nature. With the eternal technique of Brahm Gyan- the science of self- realization, he has steered millions of men, women and children, educated and uneducated, rich and poor, urban and rural across the globe, to lead environmental conservation in their offices, in their homes, in their communities, in their cities and in their states.

WE ARE NOT JUST PLANTING TREES; WE ARE PLANTING COMPASSION IN HUMAN HEARTS.
A single tree planted provides oxygen for life, it is home for fauna, it gives paper we write on, it is the giver of water we drink, it is the giver of food we eat, it is the regulator of climate we thrive on, it is the sustainer of complete life. Bearing the multifaceted role of trees in maintaining the environment, tree plantation is one solution which stands high on the mandate of Sanrakshan to deal with environmental crisis. To systematize the practise of tree plantation, we run a special "tree plantation program" to sensitize actors on benefits of tree plantation and train them in the art of planting trees. We believe, tree plantation is far from a mechanical exercise, infact it is the most effective way of reviving that innate bond of compassion which exits between man and nature.

The recent floods that created havoc in Jammu & Kashmir brought the ever-growing issue of deforestation in the state into light as one of the important reasons to these floods, resulting in a disaster, not natural. Even though 'n' number of warnings were issued during Uttarakhand floods, no change was witnessed at individual or social level towards preserving what preserves us. Large number of trees are cut every year in the name of development, keeping the environmental aspect at stake. "Environmentalists say last year's devastating flash floods in Uttarakhand, in which at least 5,000 were killed, and the unprecedented deluge in Jammu and Kashmir this year, both have the same cause - urbanization, reduced forest cover and erratic monsoon." - NDTV report. Today, we stand at a point where even our small unsustainable actions can worsen the state of environment. Thus, it is our responsibility to ensure a healthy environment by planting trees, cleaning the su…
