Madanpur Khader, a slum settlement in South Delhi, has very poor sanitation. All open spaces are used as garbage dumps.
Thanks to the sanitation program and the community’s increased awareness on and involvement in waste management, 11 young men are now working as garbage collectors within the settlement. Every day, they collect the garbage from households, and segregate the different items with a view to recycling them. Families pay a small monthly fee for the garbage collection.
Thanks to the sanitation program and the community’s increased awareness on and involvement in waste management:
- EHygienic waste and garbage disposal from households;
- EClean drains;
- E• The conversion of a piece of land that is being used as a garbage dump into a clean, garbage free, green park, which can serve as an area of recreation for the community.
