School makes waste-to-wealth a reality
Schools can provide excellent learning opportunities for creating awareness about waste and its management. Government Senior Secondary School in Kadianwali village of Jalandhar District in Punjab is one such school where a teacher and her students have successfully set up a vermi-compost pit using waste material, which has earned the school a tidy sum. In the process, they have made their environment clean and tidy.
The district administration of Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh is building as many as 1208 community sanitary complexes (CSCs) within the premises of schools, the courthouse, Anganwadi Centres, Mandal Revenue Office (MRO) and Mandal Parishad Development Office (MPDO) to cater to employees of the offices as well as the general public who visit those institutions.
The district administration of Palghar in Maharashtra is constructing new individual household toilets and community toilets to cater to the people who still do not have access to sanitation. At the same time, it is ensuring that people regularly use toilets and practice safe hygiene and sanitation practices.
