15-Year-Old Umasri Poojyam Leads Campaign to Save River Godavari from Pollution


Umasri Poojyam, a 15-year-old girl from Memphis, USA, is taking charge of a comprehensive campaign aimed at tackling the environmental challenges that the Godavari River faces near Razole, Konaseema district. Witnessing the detrimental impact of pollution during her visit to Ponnamanda village, her birthplace, inspired her to embark on this mission.

River Clean-Up and Awareness:

Over the past two years, Umasri has initiated and overseen more than 100 river clean-up days, rallying volunteers from the local community to combat pollution. In addition, she educates residents on proper waste disposal and methods to minimize their environmental footprint. Her efforts led her to establish the ‘Youth Against Water Pollution’ organization, dedicated to raising awareness about water pollution.

Collaborations and Support:

While Umasri primarily conducts the river clean-up work independently, she actively seeks volunteers whenever possible. She also collaborates with local officials and politicians, such as Amalapuram MP Chinta Anuradha and Razole MLA Rapaka, to advocate for improved environmental policies and conditions.

Motivation and Future Goals:

Umasri’s deep connection to her ancestral village of Ponnamanda, which heavily relies on agriculture, drives her determination to protect the Godavari River. She recognizes the detrimental effects of chemical-intensive farming practices, which contaminate streams and exacerbate water pollution. Inspired by her mission, Umasri aspires to become an environmental engineer.

Umasri Poojyam, at just 15 years old, is leading a remarkable campaign to safeguard the Godavari River from pollution in Razole, Konaseema district. Through her river clean-up initiatives, community engagement, and collaborations with local authorities, she strives to create a positive impact on the environment and inspire others to join her cause.
