The Chitral Heritage and Environmental Protection Society (CHEPS) carried out a campaign of clean and green Pakistan from Lashkar Gaaz where 64 students and community members participated in a cleanliness campaign and awareness session.
CHEPS chairman Rehmat Ali Johar along with the volunteers organized cleanliness drives and environment consciousness event in thirty one villages of Biyar side so far.
The villages that CHEPS team has influenced include Lashkar gaaz, Chinarabad, Chikar, Garamchasma, Intripon, Khalkhund, Gherarum, YarkhunLasht, Intip,Shusht, Shikarmat, Dubarrgar, Zhupu to all the way down to Mastuj, Sarghuz and Parwak. During this month long of interacting with people, CHEPS has reached to more than 8000 students and around 10000 community members in one way or another. CHEPS does not want it to be a onetime process, therefore CHEPS has set up Green clubs in every village which allows the youth of Chitral to own the environment which would be distorted otherwise living in the Anthropocene era.
The slogan of Clean and Green Pakistan has now reached Booni, and CHEPS is arranging different environment protection drives with TMA in Booni region. We encourage all our volunteers to be a part of these campaigns in whatever capabilities they can.
Furthermore, CHEPS would like to extend its gratitude for the bold steps taken by Deputy Commissioner Chitral IrshadSodhar for the protection of Environment and ecology of Chitral and would like to work more with the administration for the similar cause of saving the nature and beauty of Chitral.
