  14. Seeing is believing• Today, Godavari is spreading ideas that are used again and again at various levels and in different places. It is helping to build a potential for change as well as raising awareness of the endless possibilities for people across the greater Himalayan region.• Truly ‘seeing is believing’ – what better way to spread knowledge than to help people to see and do for themselves...
