In line with Prime Minister Modi’s Swachh Bharat Mission, we are trying to incorporate the values of Swachh in our lifestyle in various ways.
At our Atmalayam Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls in Udumalpet, Tamil Nadu, we are promoting the concept of ‘zero waste’. The hostel which is home to 65 girls practices the 3R principles: Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. Students of the hostel are made aware and encouraged to practice various conservation methods. This is done so that they become sensitive on environmental issues.
This drew the curiosity of students studying in U. K. P. Matriculation School located nearby. A group of pupils from the school visited the Udumalpet Hostel where our hostelers explained the various waste management techniques that was put to use in the premises.
Our girl hostellers also distributed pamphlets and posters to the school pupils from UKP Matriculation School. The interaction was fruitful in terms of knowledge sharing and creating new bonds of friendship.
