Clean up Nepal 2014 Nationwide Cleanup

Our nationwide cleanup is taking place again this year. It will be held in locations throughout Nepal on Saturday, 20 September 2014 from 7am to 11am.  Clean up Nepal 2014 is affiliated to the Clean up the World campaign that engages an estimated 35 million volunteers in 130 countries each year.  We extend an invitation to you and your organization to partner with us as a Clean up Nepal 2014 Partner to help us to spread the message about the campaign throughout Nepal and globally. We also invite you to actively participate in a cleanup in your neighborhood. Clean up Nepal’s nationwide cleanups are about communities taking a step to commence cleanup activities in their neighborhood that we anticipate will act as a catalyst for ongoing solid waste management activities.


Clean up Nepal 2014 Nationwide Cleanup aims to improve urban and rural environments in Nepal through community-based cleanup campaigns. At a macro level, the Clean up Nepal 2014 campaign aims to unite stakeholders involved in the environment sector and those concerned about the environment to work together in synergy to facilitate mass clean up events and community training aimed at addressing the problem of solid waste management throughout Nepal. At a micro level and in practical terms, the approach for Clean up Nepal 2014 is simple – get together friends and family, join or register a local site and participate in the nation-wide clean up events throughout 2014.

Clean up Nepal aims to inspire and empower local communities, community groups, educational institutions, businesses, and local governments throughout Nepal to join the clean up movement to address local environmental issues in a simple and visible way. The campaign is the first bilateral cooperation between Australian and Nepalese organisations to run a nationwide cleanup campaign that provides local communities a unified platform to take action to clean up streets, rivers, public places, and spaces in close proximity to their homes, work and entertainment. The campaign will bring together stakeholders to run annual cleanup activities with maximum efficiency and minimal funding. We believe that our joint visible, positive actions will influence and educate others in our communities and will provide inspiration to care for the environment.

So far we have received confirmation of participation by the following cities:

KIC has a target to plant 10 000 trees including Neem (Indian Lilac), Bel (Bengal Quince), Kapur (Camphor), Amala (Indian Gooseberry) and Sami (Khejari/Jand) and others. Local residents of Itahari are being urged to plant trees on the street, open grounds, parks and river banks throughout the city. Members of KIC visited the Tol Bikas Sanstha, schools, colleges, temples and met with several people from different backgrounds living in all 9 wards. They found great enthusiasm among local people to green the city. All major political parties have committed their support to celebrate the day and work to make it a massive success.

The campaign will be organized in every corner of the city from Khorsane Khap in the north to Muslim Tol, Gaisar- Bhurki in the south of the Municipality. Keep Itahari Clean, the Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and the Itahari Municipality have published information brochures on the tree plantation. Itahari Municipality has sent out letters to all organizations and people to participate in the campaign. PABSON (Private and Boarding School’s Organisation) Sunsari has also published informative leaflets on tree plantation to distribute among school students. The Tol Bikas Sanstha and other organizations have sent request letters with the number of trees they are planning to plant in their locality to the Municipality, upon which the Municipality has organized to provide tree plants and also urged locals to take care of them after plantation.

A press meet was organized on 18 September 2014 to spread the message of the campaign. Local FM stations, TV channels, newspapers have been supporting the campaign for publicity.
