Ganga Praharis will be trained and motivated leaders from among the local community who will inspire other members of the community to join hands in the conservation efforts towards biodiversity of the Ganga River. Thus, each Prahari shall work on the model of ‘Each One make Ten’.

Each Ganga Praharis will be the key persons for :

Mobilizing the local communities in their respective villages for maintaining the integrity of the Ganga River ecosystem

Liaisoning with the local Forest Department at their respective villages in maintaining a clean and vibrant Ganga by providing support for biodiversity monitoring, taking part in anti-poaching operations, and river side plantation programmes
