Clean up Nepal conducted a river cleanup at Silaphal, Thankot on Saturday, 30 July 2016. 110 registered participants took part in the cleanup where waste was collected from the river and the surrounding areas manually from 7 am to 9 am. An excavator was then used for another two hours to take out bulky garbage that had been in the river for years. After the cleanup, Clean up Nepal hired a 10 ton vehicle to transport the collected waste from Thankot to the landfill at Sisdol. 57 sacks of waste in total was collected which included 49 sacks of waste taken out from the river and approximately 8 sacks of green waste (weeds) was collected. This cleanup was carried out as a follow up event after the completion of awareness raising workshops, drama, up-cycling training and household waste management surveys at Thankot that has all been carried out over the past 9 months.


The event was carried out with the support of the local community, Clean up Thankot Committee, Mahanagariya Prahari Brit Thankot, Clean up Nepal team, and our volunteers and interns from Amics del Nepal YOUTH, Xavier International College, SOKA University of America, Kathmandu University School of Engineering, KUSOM and Campion College.

Clean up Nepal team visited the Community Child Rescue Centre (CCRC), a child care center at Imadole, Lalitpur. Interns from Xavier International College provided the children of CCRC WASH awareness training on personal hygiene, hand washing and sanitation, as part of Clean up Nepal’s WASH and Sustainable Living Program.  Our teaching methodology was based on learning by playing. We interacted with the children, discussed about the importance of sanitation and hygiene, and played some games with them.  They were very enthusiastic to learn and actively participated in the program. There are 20 children living at CCRC aged 9 to 14. Abandoned and orphan children are looked after at this center.  The program was conducted at the Community Child Rescue Centre with the help of the Joy Foundation.
