Greetings champions of change 🌟🌱

National Service Scheme, Sri Aurobindo College, University of Delhi, proudly organized the event "Ek Tareekh Ek Ghanta" as part of the 'Swachhata Hi Seva' campaign by the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India. Under this campaign, we are thrilled to introduce you to "Ek Tareekh Ek Ghanta" - a Cleanliness Drive like no other! As we embark on this transformative journey, let us remember the words of Rachel Carson, "Nature does not exist in isolation; we are all part of its intricate web." 🌍🌱

1. Extensive preparations were made to ensure the success of the event. Around 35 NSS Volunteers, teachers, college and local school students, few community helpers, and local residents were mobilized and equipped with cleaning materials. The event also witnessed active participation from our Honourable Principal, Prof. Vipin Kumar Aggarwal. The event commenced at 10:00 AM and continued until 11:30 AM. 🧹📋

2. Our team carefully selected five significant sites - the college campus, a local school area, the bus enclave area, the area outside the metro station, and the DDA park. These sites were chosen based on their importance in the community and the need for cleanliness. The selection was made after consultation with the local authorities. 🏫🌆

3. Before the cleanliness drive, these areas were littered and neglected. However, the turnaround was nothing short of miracle after the tireless efforts of our volunteers, students, neighbourhood helpers and locals. All the five selected sites went from cluttered chaos to clean and pristine.

4. At all five locations, volunteers actively engaged with the local community including school and college students, community helpers and local residents. Apart from cleaning the surroundings, the NSS volunteers also interacted with residents, shopkeepers, and passersby to raise awareness about cleanliness and environmental preservation.

5.The impact of our cleanliness drive extended way beyond the physical transformation. Media outlets conducted interviews of our post holders. In these interviews, our post holders shared their insights, experiences, and the significance of the event. This media coverage helped spread the message of our initiative even further and inspired others to join the cause. 📰🎥

6. Throughout the event, our team captured the scale of the activity through photos and videos. The focus was on highlighting the remarkable before-and-after transformations, showcasing how these spaces evolved from neglected to rejuvenated. Official hashtags such as #SwachhBharat were used to ensure a wider reach. Additionally, official handles @SwachhBharatGov and @swachhbharat were tagged in posts to gain the attention of national-level authorities. 📸

7.The dissemination of event content on social media was meticulously planned. Pre-event teasers were posted to generate excitement. Live updates were shared during the event to maintain engagement, and post-event pictures spoke volumes about the incredible changes witnessed. This strategic approach ensured continuous engagement with the audience, inspiring others to join the cause of transformation. 🚀📢

8.The collected waste was carefully sorted and disposed of responsibly through collaboration with local waste disposal authorities. Proper waste segregation and disposal were integral parts of our commitment to environmental sustainability. The "Ek Tareekh Ek Ghanta" Cleanliness Drive showcased the power of collective action in revitalising communities, with the active participation of students, community helpers, local residents, and even school children. These areas, once plagued by neglect and litter, became symbols of cleanliness and rejuvenation. Our commitment to civic responsibility and sustainability was made manifest, demonstrating the potential for a cleaner, greener future. 🌿🌏

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your active participation and dedication to this noble cause. Together, we have not only transformed physical spaces but also ignited a spirit of positive change in our community. 🙏💚
