River+ Project Launches with Successful River Clean-Up Campaign

We’re thrilled to share that our River+ project kicked off with a successful River Clean-Up Campaign at the Balkumari Bridge area on April 20, 2024. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our incredible volunteers, consortium partners, local stakeholders, and communities, we removed 1700+ KG of trash from our rivers and riverbanks, significantly improving the health of our waterways and surrounding ecosystems. 200+ people participated in the river clean-up campaign. A huge thank you to everyone involved for making our community cleaner and greener.

It was made possible thanks to the support of the World Bank through the Plastic Free Rivers and Seas for South Asia (PLEASE Project), which is implemented by the South Asia Co-operative Environment Programme with support from UNOPS.

RIVER+ is led by Biocomp Nepal in partnership with People in Need Nepal and CLEAN UP NEPAL.
