Afroz shah Foundation has offered the IBDP students of Hiranandani Foundation School to help them achieve the IB aims and philosophy and shoulder the responsibilities of citizens of this planet, taking care of the environment around them. Hiranandani IBDP students have gotten the opportunity to collaborate with the Afroz shah Foundation, from February 2022 to help clean up 3 important and critical sites in Mumbai, Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Versova beach and the Mithi river. The weekly contribution of the volunteers is to help conserve the environment around these areas.

The initiative has helped students become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. Especially reflective about what they have learned over these weeks of activities and how it has helped them become a sensitive and responsible citizen.

The group of 13 students were distributed in groups of 3. Six people per sector to clean up. The 9 sectors were cleansed consisting of at least 11 homes in the villages. 4 students, Aishwarya, Roshan, Miheeka and Nikshay, stayed back to understand the first process of segregation before the waste is handed out to factories to segregate and recycle. The segregation activity was to understand how to properly displace different types of materials despite them being generalized as plastic waste or dry and wet waste. The bags which were segregated had labels on them displaying the 7 types of different recyclable categories to put the plastics in. The activity consisted of segregating the bags which the other 10 students and their teams received from villages, the people who consumed these products and collect them to pass onto the Afroz Shah team. The waste was separated into; multilayer plastics/Single-use plastics, paper/Cardboard, bottles made of glass, hard plastic and other materials like clothes that don’t go to the factories. The other 10 students and their teams had the duty of trying to help the villagers understand why they should reduce the use of single-use plastics like polythene bags for groceries and use other reusable bags to bring in their groceries. The people responsible to clean the villages also created awareness among the villagers to stop littering and stop avoiding the use of single-use plastics and small packets to store their ingredients.
