About the Organization:
Fed up of the filth and clutter around our Heritage places and structures? Things are likely to change, thanks to the ‘Kesari Swacch Warrior Campaign’. The World Heritage Site has become part of the initiative by the Ministry of Tourism to bring the site and the surroundings to an acceptable level of cleanliness and hygiene.
We Indians are proud of the heritage sites in our country. There are about 350 forts and various heritage places in the state that have a rich cultural legacy. These forts and heritage places need to be preserved and restored of its historical glory that is getting lost due to garbage pile up and lack of maintenance. Imagine how great it would be if all of us could take the responsibility of preserving at least one monument or sculpture around us. India over 9,400 tonnes of plastic waste which is either landfilled or ends up polluting streams or groundwater resources. While some kinds of plastic do not decompose at all, others could take up to 450 years to break down.
The campaign is aimed at undertaking both sensitization and action at the field level to bring our tourist destinations and their surroundings to a certain level of cleanliness. This is part of the government’s strategy of the 12th five-year plan for improving the quality of services and environs in and around tourist destinations across India. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) along with Sakal Social Foundation and Kesari Tours are adopting six monuments under the Kesari Swacch Warrior Campaign.
All we want to do is one thing – clean up the forts and heritage places spread across Maharashtra and conserve the glory of the historical monument for the future generations. Every month SFA will carry out fort cleaning drives under #KesariSwacchWarriors across Maharashtra with the help of its vast networks of volunteers with a single mission to protect vintage art, heritage, culture, and tourism. Your support today will protect vintage art, heritage, architecture, open space, restore wildlife habitat, tourism, and help inspire and educate youth through outdoor learning, giving the next generation the opportunity to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.
