Objectives of Sustainability
- Food waste to extent of 40% of country’s production can actually be saved. Besides above, the very act of reducing waste in the system, improves environment, reduces pollution and generates greater economic value in the system.
- Residual waste can be converted to energy
- Reduction in waste can release expensive land-fills for alternate use
Source segregation, localized composting can lead to saving extensive energy currently spent on waste collection, landfilling and disposal. Need for a sustainable solution for waste management
- Awareness programs to Reduce Waste
- Awareness programs on Source Segregation
- Support mechanism for collecting Non-degradable waste
- Composting of organic waste at Generation
- Alternate methods of processing Non-degradable waste
- Composting of degradable waste at Landfill.
- Alternate off grid energy can substitute grid energy / fossil fuels and thus extend the availability of scarce energy resources.
- Establishing eco toilets which can ensure successful composting of feces, urine animal secretions etc.
In the circumstances it is necessary that more and more non-profit organisations / projects start evolving in the various areas highlighted above.
We at Samriddhi Foundation are inspired by the following opportunities:
- Identify projects to offer more practical education to students, workers in the rural areas
- Identify projects to minimize waste and simultaneously generate energy from waste
- Identify projects to provide decentralized drinking water solutions
- Identify projects to provide off grid alternate power infrastructure.
- Create 100 model self sustaining villages
- Any other actions that may enhance the primary objectives of the trust.
- Identify projects to upgrade basic health services with a specific desire of establishing 1000 mobile ambulances in rural areas
