Krishnamurthy set up the foundation in 2007, the same year he started working as an account associate at Google. Three years later, he quit his job to run EFI full time.

The EFI team works to clear out the garbage and restore the natural habitats of birds, frogs, and native plants, giving wildlife a chance to return. Over the last 13 years, EFI has carried out restoration work on 112 lakes and ponds.” India’s got a water story to tell,” he says. “The world has to know.”
