  2. 2. <ul><li>Poor habits of disposing domestic waste. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Garbage that is dumped by the residents is cleared very rarely. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hence, the garbage piles up and was turning into a breeding yard for mosquitoes & diseases. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>We started observing people and the way they dump their domestic waste, starting from our homes . </li></ul><ul><li>We were able to identify that there was no designated place where in one can dump the garbage. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>We wanted to have a dustbin which can hold the garbage for days. </li></ul><ul><li>We discussed the idea with our mentors from Bhumi and later approached the ward counselor to understand the feasibility. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>We prepared awareness charts and took out a rally to explain the ill effects of garbage. </li></ul><ul><li>We were to reach out to more than 100 families in our colony. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>We performed skits at multiple locations with in our colony to explain what a piled up domestic waste can cause. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>We collected signatures from the residents pledging to dump the garbage only at designated places. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The dustbin was ready and we started off dumping the garbage only in the dustbin. </li></ul><ul><li>Though the change was slow, it spread fast and people started using dustbin one by one. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>We initially thought it was others who were really dumping the garbage irregularly. </li></ul><ul><li>Later realized it started from our homes too. </li></ul><ul><li>We understood what it takes to change, we transformed, we collaborated ,started off to make a difference and in this process </li></ul><ul><li>WE DID CHANGE….!! </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Kids made us realize and implement what we should have done long time back. </li></ul><ul><li>- Mrs. Kundalakesi, Ward Member </li></ul><ul><li>We were surprised by the energy and dedication that they had in transforming their place. We understood what ‘garbage’ was to them. They took it so very personal..!! </li></ul><ul><li>- Mrs. Selvi, Star Community Centre </li></ul>
