  1. 1. Going beyond the school campus Walking on the roads of Drukgyel, students observed garbage everywhere, people did not think twice about throwing plastic wrappers on the streets. Drukgyel does not have a garbage collection site. The streets are covered by garbage, corners are covered by garbage, grounds are covered by garbage, so we thought just educating our students was not enough, we have to get our community involved to make a difference. Our aim was to have a clean community as well as create awareness. As saying goes,” give a man fish, he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish, he will eat for lifetime.” Just cleaning the community by students is not going to make much difference in the community, because locals will take for granted, so we want to create awareness so that the community benefits long-term Volunteers group was formed with both the teachers and students. They chose few ideas to disseminate information to the students and the community. We decided on having green day where students will not be allowed to bring packaged food once a month, we have plastic collection competition and awarded prizes to the most successful teams, we sold the collected plastics to the recycling company, Most important of them all, we have teachers teamed up with students and go around the communities conducting cleaning campaign and creating awareness on waste management. Overall it will be another successful year, if we can get one additional person to be conscious about the environment and if we can get one more plastic out of the environment and recycle one additional plastic bottle.
