Project Amrit

While the Earth is seemingly covered in vast oceans, only a tiny fraction, about 2.5% is actually fit for drinking. This surprising fact highlights the preciousness of fresh water, a resource far more limited than most realise.

Recognising this critical need for clean drinking water, the Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation, under the aegis of Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj, launched Project Amrit on 23rd February 2023. Guided by the objective of Swacch Jal Swacch Mann (Clean Water, Clean Mind), the project mobilised volunteers to clean over 1100 water bodies in 700 cities across India. This incredible effort saw volunteers dedicate a staggering 2.1 million hours to the cause.

Building on the success of the first phase, the foundation launched an even more ambitious Phase 2 on 25th February 2024. This time, the volunteers cleaned over 1200 water bodies across India, surpassing the impressive reach of the previous year. The initiative extended its reach by collaborating with the Government of India’s Ministry of Culture and various colleges from the University of Delhi. As a result, thousands of students and faculty from the Delhi University, alongside other volunteers from multiple Resident Welfare Associations and Corporates joined the effort, solidifying Project Amrit's position as a collaborative movement for clean water. And now, this effort continues monthly at various locations across Delhi NCR.

By fostering a culture of clean water awareness and responsibility, the project empowers communities to become caretakers of their environment. The dedication of volunteers, collaboration with key stakeholders, and a focus on education make Project Amrit a beacon of hope for a future where clean water is accessible to all.
