World Water Envoys Project – Deepesh
For the IWRA, I had the opportunity to depict the stories of five young people selected to come to the World Water Congress. We chose those so-called World Water Envoys, five young professionals, to showcase the Water Security issues their communities struggle with. By joining the IWRA activities and events, the Association gives them an opportunity to bring solutions back to their community.
This illustration project was based on each of the Envoy’s story, describing their water security problems and the impact they have on their community.
Deepesh focuses on the right to water and sanitation in slums, in India. He has a Master’s degree in Water Policy and Governance, worked with the Indian Sanitation Coalition, and currently works on installing temporary toilets during giant pilgrim gatherings similar to Kumbh Mela.
