Talking to Elders About Trash Segregation


We spoke with the village leaders about putting trash systematically and we gave them some dustbins to implement segregation. We discussed with them to know their knowledge of putting trash systematically.

Also we asked permission to share our knowledge with children in their village. Usually, I just study in the classroom and don’t know what is happening in these communities. But when I first went to this area, I felt that the outside world is different what I have learnt in the classroom. And I am now aware that what I am learning in the classroom should be applied in these practical areas.
