The mounting waste challenge

India is now among the top 10 countries generating the highest amount of municipal solid waste (MSW), primarily due to growing urbanisation and high levels of consumption, says a report by The World Bank. With around 50% of the country’s population projected to be living in urban areas by 2050, the volume of waste generation is projected to grow by 5% every year.

To spread awareness on waste & pollution we conducted activity in Ambujwadi slum area, this activity initiated by children,

Children are the future of our Nation!!  The little warrior's of Ambujwadi celebrated the HABITAT MONTH by participating in a poster competition organized by the field work students of College of social work Nirmala Niketan on the theme 'Amchi Malvani Sundhar Malvani.

They used waste matter from their surroundings and made posters sending across a strong message against pollution of water bodies and beaches and their natural habitat. They highlighted the impact of garbage and pollution on inhabitants of Ambujwadi. Each poster is a silent prayer by the children of Ambujwadi for a better,  cleaner and greener habitat for a safer and brighter future.
