Standing up for change
Biogas plant visit by students
Jwalamukhi children were taken on a field trip to visit the bio gas plant at Yelahanka.
About 45 enthusiastic , excited children assembled at 2.30. After the initial round of briefing they happily trouped into two vans. Journey was fun filled with songs and Antakshri and for a change nobody was complaining about the notorious Bangalore traffic!
On reaching the BBMP bio gas centre they were greeted by Dr. Sandhya, who is a health inspector and in charge of the unit. After explaining the process the children were taken to see the dry waste collection centre. Here different types of dry waste like shampoo bottles, cardboard boxes, milk sachets were collected .
The per kg rates of these items was put up on a board . One could sense the confusion in the minds of these 12 year olds - what??? Do we GET money when we give away garbage???
