Water crisis has transpired in Hoskote. This predicament has now turned into a complex and multi-faceted crisis and requires multiple points of consideration.
Run for Lakes is conceived by ACRE Foundation as a hands-on methodology in incorporating the actual lakes into our awareness project. It is our belief that conducting marathons around the lake stretches an organic understanding of the plight of farmers.While giving runners and sponsors a first-hand glimpse of the problems faced by local people it also manages to highlight our genuine efforts on the cause.
The goal is to create awareness and work together as a collaborative effort from different walks of society and association in order to bring water back to these lakes.
The once called “A paradise for bird lovers”, a thriving community with an abundance of natural water in the form of lakes, Hoskote is now died out. The taluk now has 165 out of 168 lakes that are partially or completely dry.
We believe in putting people and plant first.Our determination is to make the world better.
ACRE foundation is a non-profit organization. It is established in 2017 to accomplish economical and community-based strength for the rural and underprivileged. We work towards our engagement model that strives to uplift farmers and the younger generation of rural India
ACRE brings together national associations, that promotes Indian farmer welfare, water rejuvenation programs, the soil management, bio organic fertilizers and collaborate with scholars reinforcing best practice aspects of conservation agriculture.
