The increasing industrialization and fast growth do not only pose problems related to the allocation of resources and powers, but also severely challenges the natural environment. Environmental degradation such as contaminated water, sinking groundwater levels, unhealthy soils, and polluted air has become a harsh reality in many parts of India. It created an unpleasant environment situation because of the improper disposal. Waste management is considered an important initiative by the government to rehabilitate the safety and well-being of the environment. Thus, in response, Ekam proposes to set up a proper and systematic garbage collection and segregation procedures. It can also practice recycling or designate waste collection teams which would dispose „unusable garbage‟. This project is in line with the Village Health Sanitation and Nutrition Committee (VHSNC) is one of the major initiatives under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).
To sensitize the community and members of the VHSNC and activate the same in villages to ensure sanitation and hygiene in the community.
