SOME OF OUR
"I saw where my waste goes and how that contributes to the global problem of waste. We visited places we would normally not have gone to like the landfill and Goonj. Now I am trying to reduce my waste by thinking before I throw anything."
"The students learnt about the entire route of the river Yamuna and how it is getting polluted. The group activities and interaction among the students and the facilitator was effective in building up interest and awareness in students."
Mothers International School
"The workshop by Swechha was really impactful as it helped teachers think a lot more about the way they have been influencing their students towards a Green Future. The Principal, Mrs. Kanwal Kohli offered a vote of thanks to the Swechha team at the end"
New Era Public School Dwarka
"On comparing the two places where we went, I realised how river Yamuna was so clean when it was first entering Delhi, and so polluted when it travelled a little more. We didn't want to go back to school and wanted to stay, but we knew that we had to go back. It was a wonderful experience and I hope I get to go back there soon."
