The Kali River East, a tributary of the Ganges flows through eight Districts of Uttar Pradesh before its confluence with Ganga River near Kannauj.

The river has over 1,200 villages situated on its bank and the highly populated and predominantly rural catchment is entirely dependent on the Kali River as a water resource for domestic, agricultural and industrial use while the untreated groundwater is the primary source of drinking water.

Kali River (East) originates from the Anthawada village situated in the north of Daurala block of Jansath tehsil of Muzaffarnagar district. However few people believe river originates from Chittoda village situated above in the north of Anthawada village at a distance of 1 km in the form of a lean stream but water has never flown into it.

At the time of study also this stream was dry. Henceforth, majority of local people regard Anthawada village as source and birthplace of river. This river travels a distance of nearly three hundred kms from its origin and passes through Muzafffarnagar, Meerut, Ghaziabad, Bulandsahar, Aligarh, Eta, Farukhabbad and Kannauj before resting into river Ganga near Kannuaj.

On the banks of Kali river there are nearly 1200 villages and several big cities and towns whose majority of the population uses river water mainly for agriculture and animal rearing. This river never flows straight and flows in a zigzag manner hence, also called Nagin and in the area near Kannauj it is known as Kalindi.

To create a thriving ecosystem where the East Kali River flows abundantly, fostering a sustainable environment and enriching the lives of communities it touches.

We are dedicated to revitalizing the East Kali River, employing innovative strategies and community engagement to ensure its cleanliness, health, and vitality for generations to come.
