Dustbin for Slum Area
Wockhardt Foundation will identify slum areas in various locality, cities and provide them with Dustbin.
Amount: Rs 900/- per Area
Name: Wockhardt Foundation |
Approximately 230 tons of garbage are generated daily in an average slum. The health of at least 40 % of citizens is directly affected by this.
Whenever you hear the word slum, the picture that emerges in front of your eyes is one of mountains of garbage amidst a sea of shanty colonies with no drainage or sewage disposal in sight.
No wonder there is cynicism in the air whenever you talk of putting up dustbins in slums. Ah, it will be a drop in the ocean, why bother? That is the recurring argument against doing anything at all to make slums more liveable.
Despite the cynicism, well-meaning activists and bureaucrats are making gallant efforts to inculcate the dustbin culture in the local populations, somehow, somewhere, sometime. Why not give it a try right now? You are bound to succeed one day. Come, join us.
Ready access to dustbins will improve garbage collection, sorting out and disposal along scientific lines, resulting in a vast improvement of overall health of all concerned citizens.
Donations made above Rs.500/- will be eligible for 50% Tax exemption.
