Story

We at Prem Varsha and Krich Cleaning have been working over the years to tackle the biggest challenge posed by human generated waste in the highly fragile ecology of the Himalayas. We have been particularly working in the Kullu-Manali region since past 3 years, where we daily collect garbage from door-to-door across 30 villages and segregate, recycle and scientifically dispose the same. We also organise regular cleanups of countless illegal landfills in the region, and clean the rivers and forest areas. We also hold regular awareness campaigns to educate the locals on the perils of irresponsible littering. We have a team of 15 workers, two garbage pick-up trucks and have been operating in a highly challenging environment mostly with in-house resources so far. We are also closely working with the Government Administration of Himachal Pradesh to bring forth a sustainable solution to the rising Waste Management issue. While we are expanding our area of operations and aim to be active across the Indian Himalayan Region, the state of waste management is worsening by the hour. 

With these additional required funds, we plan to set up a much required Material Recovery Facility and deploy resources like additional garbage collection vehicles and recruit more manpower required to cater to a wider operational area. With the INR 1 Cr seeked, we plan to purchase 4 Waste Collection Vehicles, each costing INR 10 Lakhs, totalling 40 Lakhs. Another 35 lakhs will be spent in setting up a Bio-Digestor to make compost. 15 lakhs will be used to construct the MRF shed and building. With INR 10 Lakhs we will be hiring additional staff required for work expansion. 

We thank you for your valuable support, and pray that together, we can preserve the Himalayan Ecology, which is currently on the brink of a man-made disaster.
