9th June- Educational Children's Day including street children from The “Aasraa Trust” at the “Rajkiya Mahavidhalaya”.

An educational Children’s Event was conducted by ENVIS, Uttarakhand Environment Protection and Pollution Control Board (UEPPCB) in collaboration with Waste Warriors. Fifty underprivileged children including street children from The “Aasraa Trust” participated in the event which was held at the “Rajkiya Mahavidhalaya” at Rajpur Road. This day came out as a masterpiece in our Campaign.

The event started with an interactive session where the kids were asked for their inputs on various issues related to India’s garbage crisis and were taught about recycling and waste segregation. Some of the children created Swachh Bharat slogans as part of a Slogan Competition being conducted by ENVIS, UEPPCB.

The children were then split into groups and coloured posters, made a collage from plastic waste, painted a cloth banner with the wording “Cleanliness is Next to Godliness” and made wallets from Tetra Pak cartons. The children also took part in a clean-up drive. Some of the younger children dressed up as Waste Warrior Superheroes with masks made from milk and juice boxes.
