One of the major backwardness of the city and its neighbouring regions is the filth that surrounds us. The dirt that has collected throughout the city and around is almost unbearable. So, taking the philosophy of “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” we undertake, promote and encourage the dictum of cleaning the house, the vicinity, the city and thereby, the world.
Thus, on specific weekends, the volunteers of Sarvahitey assemble at a pre-decided location, fit their gloves, pick their brooms up, pull their socks up and clean up the capital city and the neighbouring regions. Along with the volunteers who sweep the city, we have volunteers carrying garbage bags to pick up the thrown wrappers, stubbed out cigarette butts, plastic bottles and basically any and everything that scars the beauty of the city.
Till date Sarvahitey has conducted several cleanliness drives throughout Delhi/NCR and considers it one of our permanent projects, which we regularly organise majorly in the winter months and more so in the more crowded areas to attract the highest amount of public and to spread awareness to its maximum. Starting in Delhi-NCR, the project is now also undertaken regularly, now, at our libraries at Bathad, Kullu (Himachal Pradesh) and Nuh, Mewat (Haryana).
It gives us immense pleasure to see people not linked with us before, come up to us and ask for some gloves and a bag and start cleaning the area of the city with us. We wish everyone does that, be it with us around, or without. Our mission does not end at just cleaning the city but making our volunteers believe in cleanliness and believe that they can make their surroundings, anywhere, impeccably clean. By these drives, we call out to each and every human to instil in himself a sense of neatness, and when not taking part in one of our drives, they should clean the world starting with their homes.
