Chitradurga LEADer Cleans Local Bus Stand and Demonstrates Amazing Collaboration Efforts

Posted on Saturday, February 15, 2014 by LEAD

Inspired by the bus stand cleaning project led by LEADer Aarya Hallikeri from KLEIT, Hubli, Mamatha V. from SJMIT, Chitradurga, decided to lead her own bus stand cleaning project in Chitradurga.  But what sets her project apart from the other bus stand cleaning projects throughout other LEAD locations is the efforts she put into collaboration in order to ensure lasting impact.  Mamatha connected with resource persons such as Mr. Ikkeri (District Commissioner), Mr. Kanthraj (Municipal President), and Mr. Anand (Health inspector), Mr. Shiv Kumar (Principal JCB).  In addition, Mamatha acquired a vehicle to assist with garbage disposal as well as monetary and materialistic donations from the public.

In her project, Mamatha made a team of fellow students and painted the dirty walls of the bus stand, collected and disposed of the garbage that had littered the ground, met with nearby shopkeepers and encouraged them to do their part in keeping the bus stand clean.  She trained the municipal staff in how to maintain cleanliness, approached the government for the sanction of sign boards, and told private bus owners to educate their passengers regarding waste management. 

Mamatha's project is benefiting an estimated 5,000 people that move in and out of the bus stand every day.  She received an appreciation letter from the District Commissioner for her initiative.  Her project was showcased at Yuva Summit 2014.
