|CLEAN UP NEPAL
Together, let’s Sparkle Nepal!
Clean up Nepal is a movement that aims to unite stakeholders to work towards a cleaner and greener Nepal.
Clean up Nepal 2013 was the first nationwide clean-up movement in Nepal that saw 12 National Partners, 120 Local Partners and 15, 430 Volunteers come together on 21 September 2013 to collect 84, 564.5 kilos of rubbish at 45 locations in 20 cities. The campaign is run by volunteers located globally with 5000 hours contributed to organise this event last year. Since Clean up Nepal 2013 began in January 2013, 176,000 kilos of waste has been collected by 21, 280 volunteers. Volunteers throughout Nepal have contributed 68, 840 hours to clean-up in and around their localities.
As clean-up activities are undertaken by members of local communities, all this was possible with a budget of only NRs. 92, 358.75. An amazing achievement by communities in Nepal! For more on the event in 2013, Click here.
