“Aamir will be encouraging more and more people to be a part of this movement to make the state of Maharashtra water abundant." says the source.
The actor will be opening the grounds for shramdaan to everyone for Paani Foundation. The foundation was started in 2016 and since then, wherever Aamir has gone, people have not only been applauding the initiative but also expressing their sincere wish to extend their help to the foundation’s work.
Sources close to the actor say that Aamir will announce that people from any part of India who is willing, can volunteer and contribute towards working for the foundation can do so for a specific period of time that is pre-decided.
“Aamir will be encouraging more and more people to be a part of this movement to make the state of Maharashtra water abundant. He is one of the most influential voices in our country and hence his sending out a message will definitely lead to a lot of aid to the villagers and the movement,” says the source.
Aamir is appealing to all by saying, “Come, be a jalmitra, work in the villages, do shramdaan, help a village and I assure you that by the end of the day you will realise that the village has ended up helping you.”
“From the commencement of this initiative to now, phenomenal positive changes have been witnessed in the villages of Maharashtra when it comes to water conservation,” adds the source.
Paani Foundation is the brainchild and hard work of Reena Dutta, Kiran Rao, Satyajit Bhatkal, Svati Chakravarty and Aamir.
