The twin problems of depleting groundwater and a missing sustainable solution inspired Dr BP Agrawal’s non-profit, Sustainable Innovations to come up with Aakash Ganga, meaning River from the Sky in Hindi. Sustainable Innovations has implemented its rainwater harvesting program in seven locations, home to 10,000 people.
Its other signature program is [email protected], a low cost healthcare delivery program for vulnerable people.
