A good future for children implies a better future for the world because they are the doers of tomorrow. Waste Smart School is an initiative to ensure just that! We want to make sure that students or young children are conscious and well aware of their actions today so that they can shape a better future for the community
Waste Smart Schools focus on providing students with an environment friendly and environment conscious outlook that will shape their actions. We ensure students receive exposure to and well-rounded knowledge about the waste management scenario and individual as well as community level practices for environment protection.
For now all of our Waste Smart Schools are located in different locations of Chitwan. We are soon planning to expand our network to other cities as well.
Waste Smart Schools form their respective Waste Smart Clubs that function according to a general guideline set as reference by Recycler Saathi. The Waste Smart Club is generally 11 member club of students that are primarily involved with Recycler Saathi to understand the waste management scenario. They act as representatives who then integrate the learnings through various programs and activities in their respective schools and communities.
In close collaboration with Recycler Saathi, Waste Smart Clubs are exposed to recycling practices as well as made aware about the need to recycle. They are taken for site visits and shown the process of baling, vertical gardening, and organic farming and so on.
Recycler Saathi organized Oath Taking Ceremony for respected Waste Smart Club members. In the ceremony the members are made to take oath corresponding to their respective positions. An initial seed fund is also handed over to the supervisors for the further activities of the club.
Waste Smart Club has offered our students a platform to collectively learn and unlearn about environment – friendly habits and apply them in their daily lives as well as inspire their friends, parents and communities to do the same. The change that the club has brought in our school’s students is noteworthy and impressive.
Our students have greatly benefitted from being part of the Waste Smart Club. We can see the change in their behavior and actions towards the environment and how environmentally conscious they have become.
Our Waste Smart Club conducts different activities and programs to promote environment conservation and protection among our friends, families and communities. Being a part of the club has also enabled us to explore various innovative conservation actions and initiatives that we can easily apply in our lives as well. We hope to continue our actions for the environment and also encourage our friends and communities to do the same.
