A clean drive by community youth

On 24th of July, our community youth group of Soniya Vihar – an urban slum community in Delhi, came together with brooms, shallow pans and spades to clean the nearest park area. For a long time, the park had become a dumpster, source of foul smell and breeding of mosquitoes. Our youth group thought it was time to take responsibility and do something about it.
