Detailed description

This project is carried in partnership with RC Ann Arbor, USA + RC Singapore and implemented by RC Chandragiri's RCC Bungamati. The project is about restoring and rehabilitating a public pond that has importance in irrigation, beauty, and socioeconomic, cultural and religious activities of the township of Bungamati.
