Urava means the beginning of a water flow and here we refer it as the starting to our initiative.
Urava is a scholarship project with children. Through this project, we are initiating to unlock the potential within our children. During the project, they are going to explore their connection with nature through arts, camps, and a lot more activities. They are going to reconnect with nature to learn the importance to conserve it. The one year program is designed as a three phase journey refering to the different stages of water flow from stream then river then ends in the sea.
Trash means something refused and it becomes a trouble when it is not managed properly. Trash can become a threat to the entire ecosystem so it is very important to have sustainable methods to manage the trash. If you want to manage the trash first of all you should be aware of the different categories of trash and how to segregate them.
Through the project track the trash we are planning to work with different communities in Kerala on training them on trash management which includes tracking the trash, segregating, and disposing of it.
Currently, we are working on the first phase of this project which is research to find the challenges in trash management in Kerala where we want to hear from the public, government and other stakeholders related to the trash management sector.
