The 60-day long road expedition will cover a total distance of 6500 km, from Mumbai to Ho Chi Minh City (Vung Tau).
The two-member team will travel across six countries, namely India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and touch three seas – Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and South China Sea. In addition to creating awareness on the looming threat around water scarcity, the cyclists along the expedition route will visit 30 schools and educate 3000 students with an aim to promote adventure – based leadership education as a part of curriculum to empower them, the leaders of tomorrow, to become change agents in their own right and contribute towards the development of the society.
In order to enhance the impact of the awareness drive, water will be collected from the three seas and major rivers along the way and distributed to major stakeholders such as schools. The cycles will boast inspiring taglines like “Every drop of water counts” and “Adventure is Education”.
This association supports the Environment pillar of SPN’s umbrella CSR campaign, ‘Ek India Happywala’ where a cleaner and greener environment is an imperative for SPN.
