We will be entering the New Year very soon.
And as part of our NGO NEW YEAR resolution we are going to use the manpower at all our shelter homes across Goa to play a small part in solving and reducing the GARBAGE issue in Goa.
We have started cleaning major BLACK SPOTS of GARBAGE in North Goa in public areas which is considered as a giving back to Society by these homeless men whom we have rescued earlier.
Attached a link of one such Black Spot☝️
We as a Society have to take care of Mother Earth and we have to be responsible in channelising our extra unwanted stuff to proper channels rather than sending it to the garbage dumps.
Last 3 months I have been visiting many garbage dumps, dumping grounds , garbage zones and have made a study of what is actually dumped here and I observed many things.
Even when cleaning Black Spots we observe the same pattern of things thrown out .
Things like the below listed are usually found in dumps namely :
☆ School bags
☆ Cutlery & crockery
☆ Sinks and bathroom accessories
Now in many parts of rural Goa and orher rural districts surrounding Goa and may be other states, we all know poverty and poor people do exist.
Can't this be Channelised to these poor people who are our own brothers & sisters?
Why are such things thrown away in garbage dumps, has been my question last 3 months ?
How many think like me is the point I am asking ?
Collecting the above items from you is the only way to reduce the garbage.
But there is a Cost to our NGO ?
Most people want to give away all the above items without considering the cost.
And most of the time people say ” I an giving you very good stuff for the poor “.
Giving it away is one part, getting to the actual poor is another part.
We have planned in the New Year massive drives to collect shoes, sandals. Socks, clothes, school bags and ladies bags , utensils, etc.
And all this will be collected ,stored, Segregated , repacked, transported by transport across various districts , re offloaded and redistributed to the poorest of the poor.
There are no drop points so don't ask where to drop please.
We are talking huge numbers like :
☆ 10000 pairs of footwear
☆ 50000 kgs of clothes
☆ 20000 kgs of utensils, cutlery. Crockery etc
☆ 10000 school bags and ladies bags .
All possible, if you just follow the instructions and ready to bear some cost of this mammoth and tedious excise.
But this is the only one way to reduce the garbage as Goa is generating alot of garbage and it is increasing and will never ever reduce.
Otherwise we will always be blaming the authorities for all garbage related issues.
Working togther is always better than blaming the authorities.
Next month JANUARY 23 we will be attempting to collect 10000 pairs of WEARABLE FOOTWEAR , like sandals, shoes , slippers, ladies footwear, gents footwear, sports footwear , etc.
If you have any queries please whatsapp me only on 8380097564.
If you call I will not be in a position to answer the call and the call will get cut .
This entire operation will last till April 23.
Let's work togthet to reduce the garbage in Goa and at the same time let's bring joy on the face of hundreds if not thousands of our fellow Indians in rural India.
It's a win win situation to all .
God bless you all
