Ganga river is the national river of India because of its deep and rich cultural, historical, and religious heritage. Despite that, people have turned their back to the river Ganga and people-river connect has worsened with deteriorating condition of the river. Ganga Quest aims to improve the connect of children and youth to our national river through enhancing awareness and knowledge.
