Its was on dawn of 19th September2015, saturday (weekend in case of Nepal), we youths from Chitwan and Nawalparasi all come together at Narayani Beach for our Cleanliness campaign. 2015 Nationwide cleanliness campaign was the third version of Clean Up Nepal. Our site co-ordinator was very own brother Birendra Poudel.
The onset of the program was done by giving formal speech by our chief guest. Then quickly cleanliness campaign caught it’s pace. With gloves in hand and mask at face, we started picking plastics, papers, bottles, rack, clothes and other waste materials.
We divided the volunteers into two group. One were cleaning east side and another were going to west side.
There was the whooping participation of more than 200+ volunteers at our site. And we were able to collect more than 3000 KG of waste.
After cleanliness campaign of 3 and half hours, volunteers were provided with small snack pack.

Note 1: Overall Clean Up Nepal Achievement

Note 2: Narayani Beach
Just 2 years back, this used to be the place of dust and dirt. But within 2 years, Narayani Beach has taken another form. Its now emerging as youth hub of the city. Every evening thousands of people come here to enjoy beautiful Narayani river, hills and sunset. However, with increase in human activities, pollution has also increased rampantly. If action is not taken quickly, than like many big rivers of big cities, it will face the same ill fate.
This year’s site selection was in itself very wise location. We used this line to involve youths ‘Your City. Your Place. Your Duty’ , ‘If you make it dirty, where will you enjoy next’.
PS Recently all the street light of the beach is now solar powered. CHEERS
