Saahas is working with Juniper networks under the AshaKirana project since October 2017. The Waste Management program under AshaKirana project is an effort to provide a solution to disposal of dry waste in the villages. The key components of this program are : door-to-door awareness, source segregation of waste by the residents, weekly collection of dry waste, storage and sorting in shed provided by the Panchayat, sale of recyclables and routing on non-recyclables to cement factories. This leads to maximum resource recovery from waste and no dumping of waste resulting in visibly cleaner villages. We are currently working with panchayat to make the program sustainable. The project bagged a CSR Sustainability award at the 6th CSR conference from Institute of Public Enterprise, Hyderabad.
Key interventions under the project are:
Join the Saahas community as an intern, volunteer, donor or as a partnering organization.
