Know Our Story for Change
A Voluntary and Not-for-Profit organization based in the ancient city of Patliputra, today known as Patna City, Patna. A youth oriented and self-less service based team for Ganga, Environment, Society and Research.
Our Organization came into existence when some students conglomerated with social activists to bring change in the prevailing conditions in society and environment. Our foundation stone was laid in August 2014 and the journey to change was started.
We believe that a nation cannot stand without a good environment be it natural, educational, health or social. And for development we need to know the past and act in present to determine the future. Our mission is to rise the baton and act accordingly to a future with Rights of Life for All be it biotic or abiotic.
At present we have centered our work on five interrelated sectors to bring changes in society and environment. We have integrated these five themes as our core mission.
Ganga & Water Resources Rejuvenation
Earth & Environment Protection
Education & Health Empowerment
Research & Development cum Advocacy
Social cum Sustainable Development & People’s Cause
Our team believes that changes for any issue can be brought only with involvement of all stakeholders and with proper alternatives. For any such change to succeed we need to work first at the grass root level which represents the first and foremost part among all the stakeholders. Further we observe that involvement of society is utmost needed for a great cause to succeed. This also requires the massive involvement of Aadhi Abaadi ‘the women’, youths of our country and kids who would be the future in coming years.
We believe in these verses of ancient Indian philosophies which are driven towards well-being of everyone and well-being at everywhere.
May there be tranquility on earth, on water, in fire, in the wind, in the sky, in the sun, on the moon, on our planet, in all living beings, in the body, in the mind, and in the spirit. May that tranquility be everywhere, and in everyone.
Though we are an organization with pro-environment and scientific temperament, we do follow our ancestral footsteps and beliefs to protect our biotic and abiotic relatives with the philosophy embedded in our civilization since ages. The transformational development in the Society for our environment, nature and the social structures can be achieved by incorporating the interrelationship between every component of life, not only of the human beings but every creature.
Being a team of young people we have Creativity for Innovations and Curiosity, Courage to Sacrifice and Serve the Nation, Passion for Research and Social Work, Willpower to Enlighten and Change the world, Zeal to Learn and Promote Humanity, and a Hope for Better Future.
The name of our organization GANGEYA is a tribute to the great warrior and staunch devotee ‘Devavrata’ renowned as Bhishma and son of goddess Ganga. Being an organization based in the laps of that mother river which has nourished the Indian civilization since ages, we pay our respect to her by adopting the name Gangeya.
We also take the vow to protect Ganga and Nature which today have been deteriorated to extreme levels. We vow to conserve our environment and bring changes which are necessary for upliftment and development of society.
We believe in core values of equality, justice and integrity for all. We are a firm believer of Right to Life of every organism, however small it is and right to Existence of the Natural resources which are greedily exploited. Being youths and aware of our social responsibilities, we realize that Right to Life and Environment should not be just viewed only by human perception but with a perception by realized and evolved beings standing currently at top of evolutionary tree.
We have been following the ancient concept of
‘The whole world is a family’
as our integral component which sees everyone and everything as a part of family.
