"Let's Be The Change!"- We are Focused on beautifying black spots and giving a bridge connection between the bbmp and the common man.
How we work :-
Bengaluru city has one of the highest population among Indian cities , this is a advantage and disadvantage too , advantage is that people in the city are developing technologically , disadvantage is that people throw garbage on streets , that don't mean they Lack civil Sense ! They know what they r doing is wrong but still they do it as they complaint that the BBMP pourakarmikas don't collect the garbage from there house .
I just want to ask a few set of questions which will state what u know about BBMP
1)Do you know the ward number of your area??
Answer) Bengaluru is divided into wards , there r 198 wards in Bengaluru. There is a ward office in every ward.
2)Do you know how many officials does each ward consist of??
- Each ward has a Chief Engineer , Executive Engineer, Assistant Engineer , Assistant Executive Engineer , Health Inspector , Work Inspector , Supervisor , Pourakarmikas.
Engineers are there to develop the ward , health inspector makes sure the ward is healthy.
Supervisors supervise the Pourakarmikas .
These many officers are there to take care of one ward but still we are not able to overcome the garbage issue , it's only because that the people are not aware of what is to be done when their garbage isn't taken or any work in the ward to be taken care off. First thing to do is to go to the ward office and complaint about your problem, by doing so you will have a bridge connection with the officials and your problem is solved.

My inspiration :-
” I have grown up in an environment where everybody always wanted to leave. Leave the house they grew up in, to move to the suburbs. Leave their town to move to big cities. Leave their country, to move to the West. Leave their family to make big bucks. It appalled me. I have always, since I was a child, wanted to make where I am, a better place. Make the people I’m with, happy. Make the most of who I am in that moment. I hated people who went abroad and said, India needs to change. I wanted to give them an answer. And thus began ‘Let’s Be the Change’. ”
