SHOONYA means ZERO or nothingness. The project SHOONYA by MTD NGO resembles the aim to have
ZERO waste in India. A great idea is undoubtedly very difficult to execute but is executed on a successful
level by team MTD NGO.
CEO and a dynamic young man Mr. Deepak Vishwakarma of Making The Difference NGO aims to build a
nation that is a clean, hygienic, and a waste-free country. Sticking to their aim MTD NGO has launched
project SHOONYA which is completely based on waste management and works on taking care of Mother
Nature by segregation dry waste and wet waste from hills of garbage.
On estimated research, it is found that on yearly basis India generates about 62 million tonnes of waste.
Ever wondered where does all of this waste go??
Some of the garbage gets sorted by the government, but because they don't handle it well, the rest ends up in big piles of trash. This trash starts to rot by itself, which makes bugs and bad smells. These bugs and smells can cause sickness and spread through the air. This dirty air, bugs, and germs can lead to diseases and make the environment unhealthy.
MTD NGO runs Project SHOONYA with the base of recycling, reusing, and re-generate. The team works
hard day and night to collect waste from different part of the cities and then segregate it into dry waste
and wet waste containers. All of this waste is then sent to the waste plant for further processing. But doing
so requires humungous manpower. Mr. Deepak Vishwakarma and his team is enthusiastic about their aim
to provide the country with the safe, clean, and hygienic surroundings.
