We Mean To Clean

How do you usually spend your weekends? At the movies, gaming alleys, restaurants, pubs, or bars?

Or do you take a short trip to unwind yourself after five days of continuous work?

But did you know there is another way?

A set of individuals in Delhi spend their off days cleaning and fixing various dirty parts of the city. For them, this is attaining nirvana as nothing gives them more peace than beautifying the city that is their home.


Volunteers of We Mean To Clean

They are the volunteers from We Mean To Clean (WMTC) who believe that cleanliness in our country isn’t just the job of the Government and the civic bodies alone.

A bunch of highly motivated citizens, these individuals believe that if you’re not a part of the solution then you are a part of the problem. And rightly so, since we the citizens are the source of most of the waste materials and garbage generated in the country, thus it falls upon us to fix the mess.

The volunteers of WMTC are normal citizens akin to many of us. They are working professionals and students who identify places that are victims of open garbage dumping, open urination or open defecation and fix the dirty spot in a manner that the place sustains without problems for a considerable amount of time.


Volunteers spot-fixing a wall

They liaise with local civic bodies to resolve the issues and connect with the respective local, residential, or commercial establishments to create awareness. While the civic bodies help clean the spots, the local establishments help in sustaining the beautiful transformation the volunteers bestow upon the place.


But their jobs don’t end there

The group has its own spot marshals who visit fixed spots on a regular basis. This helps them keep a check on areas that have been beautified and take corrective actions in case any problems tend to return.

Since 2014, We Mean To Clean has fixed various such spots across Uttam Nagar, Dabri, Vikaspuri, Janakpuri, Tilak Nagar, Saket and Noida.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.
