Garbage disposal and waste-management is an issue that is central to the well being of a healthy society. The problems arising from the mismanagement of the same has plagued the entire country and is causing nightmares even in Goa – the beautiful green paradise. Through this Magic Box workshop, we seek to bring about awareness about the gravity of the issue and teach different ways of tackling it. Here, we work with children and educate them about waste-management, waste-segregation, garbage disposal and recycling of garbage in a manner that is fun and entertaining, all the while without losing focus of our principal objective.
Children are our future and their education will play an important part in shaping the world of tomorrow. Hence, we seek to target them while their minds are still fresh and open to new ideas and concepts. So far, we have seen quite a few initiatives being taken regarding this matter by various organizations but these have been more or less confined to the urban areas. Keeping this in mind, we make sure that these activities are held in more rural settings, for it is not the urban people only who have garbage to dispose. Over time, we look forward to conducting these workshops through the length and breadth of the state, in as many villages as possible. Our expectation is to see the seeds we plant today spread roots tomorrow.
