COMMUNITY CONSERVATION ACTION
Clean Up Drive At Sanjay Gandhi National Park
Trailblazers Foundation believes in being closer to nature and respecting the environment. To spread the word, Trailblazers Foundation initiated the cleanliness drive near Sanjay Gandhi National Park along with the student teachers of K. J. Somaiya Comprehensive College of Education, Training and Research. The response was commendable and we had to take two batches for the cause. One batch cleaned the path to Kanheri caves of 3km and the other batch cleaned Kanheri caves. It was heart breaking to see the litter consisted of Alcohol bottles, chips and chocolate wrappers which together accounted to around 30 Garbage bags. Trailblazers Foundation strongly believes in making a strong impact on the citizens especially the youth as they are the future of India, that keep the surrounding clean is not a one man show, it is a community responsibility that in turn benefits the society with improved environmental conditions.
Please get in touch with us if you would like to organize clean up drives.
