A grass-root level cleanliness drive!

Today we will talk about Anitha S and Pavithra, who became a part of the Skills Accelerator program conducted in schools across the country by Edunet foundation. The program was able to motivate both the girls from Government PU College, Yelahanka, Bangalore to choose Driving Swachh Bharat as their capstone project, an undertaking that left a lasting impression on their classmates and their community alike.

 

Awareness and consciousness in local people about disposing of garbage appropriately was found to be low by the girls, even though the accumulation of trash was an inconvenience for everyone equally.

 

 

 

 

 

Following were done by the team to promote a clean and functional sustainable environment:

  1. The garbage dump was cleaned up and properly disposed of  with the help of their mates, to get over the initial inertia
  2. Signages and posters were put up to prevent repeating the same actions and to prevent people from throwing garbage at the same place again
  3. Local food vendors, shopkeepers, and households were spoken to, to make them aware of the problem, its ill effects, and how it could be solved with a collaborative effort
  4. The solution was enabled by installing proper disposal dumps

 

Driven by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, EDUNET Foundation has been influencing transformations throughout the country. Such is a story of Anitha S and Pavithra, who addressed the garbage dumping problem in their area and implemented the Swachh Bharat Initiative locally.
