ABOUT THE PROGRAMME :

Bal Ganga Prahari is an extension of the Ganga Prahari programmes, created by the Wildlife Institute of India, under the National Mission for Clean Ganga funded project, ‘Biodiversity Conservation and Ganga Rejuvenation’. The idea is to plant the seed of biodiversity conservation into the children’s mind, as they are the future of our society. School children will be the members of this programme, and selective schools will be adopted, from the Ganga basin states. 

THE VISION :

The vision of this programme is to create an aware and responsible society which has internalized the practices of conservation and cleanliness. This programme aims at raising such sensitive future citizens who can manage their environment sustainably. The objective is to educate school children about the biodiversity of the Ganga River Basin and its significance for human well-being, through interesting and innovative mechanisms.

WHO ARE BAL GANGA PRAHARIS? :

Students are divided into different levels. It is categorised in four different groups comprising of students of primary school from standard I to III, junior school from standard IV to VI, middle school from standard VII to IX and senior school students from standard X to XII. They will participate in various activities, events, workshops, sensitization programmes etc. related to the biodiversity conservation of the Ganga River basin. As they pass out from school life, they will imbibe sustainable lifestyles, impart this knowledge to their surrounding people, and implement it in their future programmes.
