Grassroot Empowerment and Development by Youth always strive to create a sustainable society. At the time, when we are going through historic environment degradation, we at GEDY, are working to sensitize people to keep their place clean and green. In furtherance of our work towards the objectives of Swachh Bharat, GEDY organised a “Cleanliness Campaign and Plantation Drive” at Thodukadu Village in Tiruvallur district of Tamil Nadu on 20th August 2018.
This activity witnessed the participation of more than 150 stakeholders of the society, out of which 53 were school going children, and 39 were female participants. The participants were made aware of importance of hand washing, keeping house and surrounding clean and green, and plantation. They were also given training on waste segregation.
The programme included lectures, demo and skit/street play by the NSS volunteers of Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development, Sriperumbudur. It was followed by a rally with all participants except school children, Plantation at various location in the village, distribution of toilet soaps to all participants and refreshments.
