The Makarba Lake – Conservation through Volunteering

Environmentalist Foundation of India (E.F.I) took the first footstep in Ahmedabad at the Makarba Tank. Makarba tank is situated right behind the historical Sarkej Roza Masjid.

The  Makarba tank was also the source of water to this monument. Recently due to various reasons of development \ rapid urbanization, the inflow of water to this place has been clogged. 

9th Feb 2020: Around 40 volunteers from various walks of life joined E.F.I for the peripheral lake clean up. The clean-up started at 8:30am and went on till 10:00am.

Around 55 bags of garbage was collected from todays clean up. The collected garbage was handed over to the Ahmedabad Municipal corporation which will be relocated to their solid waste collection facility. 

This was the first clean up organized by E.F.I in Ahmedabad and is to continue its volunteering drive in the city in months ahead.

We thank Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and all the volunteers who joined us today for strengthening our efforts.

We looking forward to volunteering with you in the walled city!

Volunteer for India and her Environment!

-Jai Hind-
