 Mumbai Kids Alerted The People With Their Actions. 

Date of Publish - Thursday, 16th November 2017

Mumbai kids alerted the nation with their actions.

According to Jean Bichter, “ Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good actions, try to use ordinary situations”. Time and age are not factors to do any good things. This was proved by the 200 students from Mumbai.

Two hundred students of Samta Hindi Vidyalaya, Turbhe, initiated the cleanliness program on the day of Gandhi Jayanthi, 2nd October. They started this program not to blame any government authorities just to bring awareness among the people.

All the students were trained by a newly formed group named as Educators for Equality. This group took an initiative and trained the students scientifically how to segregate the garbage.

All the lessons they explained to the students were related to ‘Eco-Friendly’ and the Educators for Equality group included the senior students of the same school. The senior students are very innovative and they were finding all the ways to implement sustainable ecology and educate the people about their activity.

All the students of 9th and 10th standard started from their school with necessary broomsticks, trash bags, and trolleys and moved to the street to street and started cleaning the garbage and segregated the available waste in their trained procedure.

An NGO who is working in sustainable development supplied all the gloves, caps, mouth and nose covers for the students.

The mixed waste includes 30 plastic bottles of non-biodegradable and 25 kg bio-compostable waste. Dr.D.BNaik, a BARC scientist gave an idea how to reuse the thermocol waste. So all the students separated the thermocol waste and sent the same to the place where they could make the small decorative pieces with the thermocol waste. After the cleaning program was finished all the children were entertained with a puppet show with a valuable message by the professional puppeteers. The puppet show was related to the lack of cleanliness and how people fall sick due to lack of cleanliness.

All the students with this activity learned many things and on that day they planted neem seedlings, thereby intended to grow a garden out of all the obtained garbage.

This one-day perennial movement is a clear startup for the better environmental cleaning programs.
