Mumbai is a city which never sleeps, It is the city of dreams. There are many other names for our city but the only thing that spoils the charm of the city is the amount of garbage that we throw on the roads, dump in the sewers. People from all backgrounds in Mumbai dump their garbage, something which is slowly killing our city. On this note, Swachhalay- an UN advocacy campaign along with Humans of Bombay & Mumbai Youth Forum will be organizing a #Walk2Swachhata parade from the Galaxy Apartments, Bandra West, Mumbai at 8.30am followed by massive clean up drive at Bandra Railway Station on the 28th of October.
We want to start initially with Bandra and then slowly move ahead with other areas. Since Bandra is considered to be the “Queen Of Suburbs”, we want to highlight those areas in Bandra that are in need of attention and have the scope of improvement. The objective of this event is to spread awareness and mobilize resources to take actions for improving access to public sanitation, by targeting the most vulnerable communities. The event will be divided into two aspects:
1. ‘Walk2Swachhata’ (8.30am to 10am) – It will be a procession, where young citizens from all walks of life will partake in a silent walk towards Bandra Station, with placards and banners. The purpose of this march is to mobilize communities to collaboratively redeem their pledge to a Swachh Bharat. The walk will last for 45 minutes, taking the Hill Road route. To ensure safety, Mumbai Police will be accompanying the group of volunteers during this event.
2. ‘Cleanliness Drive (10.30am – 1:30pm): Volunteers will take part in a massive Cleanliness drive at Bandra Station, in partnership with local residents and BMC.
Please join Swachhalay, Mumbai Youth Forum & Humans of Bombay on Saturday, 28th October from 8:30am for the #SwachhtaMission at Bandra Station and have the chance be part of this extraordinary journey! Assembly point is at Galaxy Apartments, Bandstand from where the campaign will be launched by #Walk2Swachhta followed by a massive Cleanliness Drive.
