Sinnar district has always been branded as draught-prone and yet Sunil Pote chose this area as his working field. The credit of raising and organizing a whole water-management movement, springing from the critical shortage of rains goes to him. He was the Founder Coordinator of Yuva Mitra and soon succeeded in roping in a few volunteers. It started 10 years ago. During all those years, Sunil contacted many people and has many well-wishers and volunteers today.
