This is exactly what the villagers at manori did, on 5th March 2017, from 8.30 am to 11.30 am covering two zones.They all came together and worked as a team to keep their village clean. The cleanliness drive was initiated by the CCO members & the core committee members , under the guidance of CSA staff Dayanand & Rasika . Thus empowering the villagers, to be the change instead of expecting a change towards a clean society.
The local BMC, provided the participants with the safety face masks, broomsticks, garbage carrier, sufficient BMC staff to collect the garbage And BMC Staff to overlook the entire drive. Many local women took part in the cleanliness drive and enthusiastically cleaned the roads. During the drive, awareness was also created on the separation of dry garbage and wet garbage.After the drive, there was an interaction session with Mr. Surendra Khot- (head of Solid Waste Department of P- North Ward (Malad), Mr. Nandu Shirsath & Mr. Ramakant Kadam- (In charge of Manori village for overall co-ordination of Garbage collecting/ Supervisor.) this was a good platform, for the local villagers to share their grievances and the local BMC, also shared the challenges faced by them. After the discussion with the villagers, the BMC agreed to support the villagers and the villagers also agreed to co-operate with the BMC and together as a team, A clean manori will not just be a dream but a safe Haven intervened!!!!
