Building Begins on the Brantas Institute for River Rehabilitation

April 25, 2012

One year after winning the Goldman Prize in 2011, Prigi Arisandi’s work to protect Indonesia’s rivers is growing by leaps and bounds.

Arisandi and his wife, Daru, are in the process of building the Brantas Institute for River Rehabilitation, a training center where upon completion, they hope to train over a thousand volunteers every year.

Arisandi also set up scholarships for three of his staff members to pursue master’s degrees in biology.
