Juhu Beach Clean-up Drive post Dusshera Festival

Juhu Beach Clean-up Drive post Dusshera Festival (23-10-2015)
300 students from VIBGYOR HIGH (Goregaon and Malad, Mumbai) along with their teachers and supporting staff joined hands with Indian Development Foundation in the Juhu Beach Clean-up Drive the day after Dusshera Festival on 23rd October 2015. Team IDF led by Dr. Narayan Iyer, Mr. Shanker Vishwanath and Mr. Satendra Prasad conveyed special thanks to all the young volunteers who reached the beach by 6:30 AM and started the drive with full enthusiasm and energy. The students felt extremely happy to be part of the clean-up drive and protect the environment. Plastic bags, plates, cups, spoons, coconuts, tetra packs etc were briskly picked up by the student volunteers and helped the municipal authorities in the cleaning process. Greater awareness on cleanliness and sense of civic responsibility need to be created particularly during festive seasons, observed the visiting volunteers. Team IDF appreciated VIBGYOR High students social responsibility initiatives in supporting environment causes. It is our duty to keep our beaches clean and ban usage of plastic items, young students expressed.
