A greening initiative was undertaken along with the active participation of the community members and in partnership with Kintsugi Regenerating Ecosystems at the Bakkarwala Resettlement Colony in Delhi. The initiative included a wide range of participatory activities that empower and educate the residents of Bakkarwala:
- Training sessions on soil quality
- Waste segregation workshops
- Rainwater harvesting techniques
- Soil health and ecology awareness
- Composting practices
The community also participated in a plantation drive to green public spaces in the area. As we deepen our engagement with the community, we are continuously inspired by the enthusiasm and focus of the residents and their desire to be empowered to embark on water sensitive living themselves. We are extending our support by building their capacity and sensitizing the residents towards a more sustainable and water-sensitive future.
