There are societal norms and prevalent habits within the Delhi community that disregard the importance of upkeep, most notably people throwing trash on the ground, i.e. littering. And while the MCD and various other government bodies go to great lengths to keep the city clean, these measures do not fully address the issue at hand. Therefore, Asha for Education sponsor an innovative sanitation program that targets MCD school children in order to instruct them about the importance of cleanliness and general respect of their home (encompassing their school, their community’s streets, the city at large, etc.)
1. Place in schools permanent trash receptacles (one’s that would last at least 20 years) that are easily acceptable and usable.
2. Teach MCD school children the importance and advantage of using trash receptacles over littering so that they utilize these skills in everyday life and set an example for others in their respective community.
