Under Goonj’s DFW (Dignity for Work) initiative, our Karnataka team and our partner organization motivated 53 individuals from Pandathimnahalli village in Kolar to clean a pond which was left unattended for years. Situated en route the village temple, the pond, which was once frequently used for religious rituals, was in a state of complete neglect. Now, having heard from our team the importance of practising hygienic ways in the time of this pandemic, and the need to revere Mother Nature, the villagers unanimously agreed to work towards the cleaning of the pond. Goonj rewarded their efforts with the Rahat Kits, which according to the villagers have lifted a heavy load off their shoulders in these lockdown days.
