“Kiran and I would like to thank the Ministry of Jal Shakti, on behalf of every member of Paani Foundation, for acknowledging our efforts. Thank you for highlighting this people’s movement against drought in Maharashtra. This would not be possible without the support of our donors, and every Maharashtrian who has contributed to this effort, and has been a part of this journey,” he wrote.

“Your kind words fill us with hope and strength. We remain steadfast in our efforts, and are humbled to be working alongside thousands of water heroes in Maharashtra. Thank you,” he added.

Aamir was responding to a tweet by the Ministry of Jal Shakti on Wednesday, which said that the Paani Foundation has been ‘transforming regions of Maharashtra from drought to prosperity’.

“Today we celebrate Paani Foundation, founded by renowned actor Sh. Amir Khan and his wife Smt. Kiran Rao. This NGO has been transforming regions of Maharashtra from drought to prosperity. ‘Satyamev Jayate Water Cup’ was an applauding initiative by the NGO. #CelebratingNGO,” the ministry wrote on Twitter.

Paani Foundation was set up in 2016 by Aamir, Kiran and the core team of the television show Satyamev Jayate. The organisation, which aims to address the problem of water scarcity in the villages of Maharashtra, hosted the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup from 2016 to 2019.

According to the Paani Foundation website, the annual 45-day competition saw thousands of villages competing to build and repair water conservation structures, raise money for machine work, and test and treat soil, among other activities.

Jal Shakti Abhiyan ambassador Aamir Khan opens up on India’s critical water crisis – Times Now News

Actor Aamir Khan, who is the ambassador of Jal Shakti Abhiyan, recently opened up on the ongoing water crisis in India. The actor is also associated with an NGO named Paani Foundation.

Actor Aamir Khan recently opened up on the major water crisis that India is currently facing. The actor, who is the ambassador for Jal Shakti Abhyan is one of the Bollywood stars who are working tirelessly to draw attention to water scarcity in the country. The Jal Shaktai Abhyan is a water conservation campaign by the government.

The campaign is focused on five major aspects – water conservation and rainwater harvesting, renovation of traditional and other water bodies, reuse of water and recharging of structures, watershed development, and intensive afforestation.

In an interview with NDTV, the actor spoke about the movement and how he is trying to create awareness about the same. He said, “The mindset we use to save and spend money needs to also be applied towards saving and spending water. We should concentrate more on public transport. It is an initiative by Maharashtra government to increase facilities for the railways. Public transport will really help us.

He also added, “What is important is that PM Modi and I find common ground to work together and I think that is what is important. The need of the hour is we work on issues which all of us believe in and all of us can contribute towards in a positive way.”
