India generates e-waste up to 1500 metric kilo tonnes every year. United Nations has predicted that by 2020 e-waste from computers will jump by 500 percent. In India, discarded waste from mobile phones would be 18 times higher as compared to the 2007 levels. Electronic waste itself does not causes direct damage to us but unscientific processing of these scraps have severe health consequences. World Health Organisation has also warned about these consequences due to e-waste in its ‘E-Waste and Child Health Initiative Report.’
There is strong and urgent need to spread awareness. We believe that people are generally ignorant of how electronic waste is a threat to human life and environment. The masses need to have this knowledge, so that solutions start coming easily. We are firm that our educational and interactive skit performances in front of school students will serve as a great medium to spread awareness. Through our campaign, we aim to cover 50,000 students directly, & 1,00,000 parents indirectly. Our campaign is action oriented where we are call the parents, teachers, and students to come together for this cause. Opening electronic waste collection centres at designated collection spots in Jaipur by Rajasthan Pollution Control Board and donation driven e-waste collection will lead to fund raising for helping people suffering in informal sectors.
