Khajaguda Clean up and Awareness Drive

Khajaguda is the basic hiking and favourite place for many trekkers. It is surrounded by beautiful rocks and trees; sadly also one can see litter everywhere. It is our responsibility to maintain the place clean.    Request all of you to  spend some time participating in cleaning the plastics, organic materials and to help in creating awareness amongst locals to maintain the beauty of Khajaguda.

Make a difference!

Make this  Saturday A Special Day in Your Life

About Place: Khajaguda is close to Hitech city in Hyderabad and  popular among active Hyderabadis for hiking and rock climbing activities. Unfortunately the area is also very littered with plastic bags, bottles and other non biodegradable items.

    Thanks to all the participants who came today. Thanks to Geetanjali Ma'am, and Sha who took up the event.
    I could not stay beyond 8:30 am because of prior office commitments but thoroughly enjoyed the morning with the group.

    April 5

    • Abhishek M.

      I intend to personally carry a large garbage bag and gloves the next time I hike there, so that we can keep cleaning periodically, until the next meet up.
      Had great time with a few people in the group, and didn't realise any strain whatsoever. Slightly disappointed with myself as I could've done a lot more if I didn't have to leave earlier.

      2 · April 5

  • Geethanjali R

    Thank you all of you for showing such great enthusiasm to clean up somebody else's mess, giving up your saturday morning sleep. This proves that you are different from others. Please keep up the momentum and remember to motivate at least one person daily towards anti-littering . Every little helps. Togetehr we can do it!

    Had a fruitful discussion regarding anti-litteringwith Durgah chief who manages some of the area around there . GHAC plan to follow this up soon

    Thank you Aleem, Manideep, Abhishek, Jaffy for your support

    Great initiative. Kudos to all.

  • Goutham R.

    It felt great cleaning up the surroundings and working with a bunch of absolute strangers. I guess we will have to keep doing this regularly to have a proper impact. Only suggestion is that next time it would be nice to start a little early because after 9 it gets really hot in the summers. I understand that some of us are coming from far and coming early can be difficult on a weekend, but may be we can have two batches, one of which can start a little early.

    Also I might not check the meetup page regularly, so can you send the invites on FB too
