In the yesterweeks, a certain challenge known as the Trashtag challenge was all over the internet and was the talk of every town. It can also be called a “challenge 0f Virtue”, as it encourages people to come out of their hideouts and collect “trash”, and then encourage and challenge others to do it too.
Recently, the students of Bahria University, Islamabad have started taking active part in it, they run it as a campaign within there university under the slogan of Paak, paak Pakistan, Saaf, saaf Pakistan.
Planning for a day out? Thinking of going to Saidpur village and Do a little “ Nature Reconnect”?
Well, if that’s the case then Don’t forget to send your best to Bahria University’s students as they owe you big!
They have not only limited this amazing effort to their university but have recently chosen a spot that leads and meets Saidpur village and have swept it clean. Yes, it is all green and clean there now, you don’t have to go through those heaps of trash and truck load of debris in order to reach your destination, all you need now is a desire!!
It was a three-day campaign and many heads were seen indulged in it.
The students participated in it with such zeal and enthusiasm, that is commendable. Boys and girls alike were seen holding placards and banners with headings like Bahria University accepts trashtag challenge, Plant pride not litter and a chart showing a before and After.
This is not all yet, they have also joined hands and have added The Helping Hands Organization to it too, which has further increased the magnitude and effect 0f this campaign and this campaign now is slowly turning into a Movement, as more and more people are hailing it and becoming a part of it. Well, this can only be good as The more , the merrier!!
Helping hands is also very ecstatic about this collaboration as Mr Shahrukh and his awesome team of volunteers helped the students through this whole process and are all in for extending any further assistance they can in any way possible.
With this being seen, I myself feel motivated to start something this great in my university too, as this should spread like conflagration and should lit up the whole of Pakistan in it’s flames as it for a change is a challenge worth accepting and worth fighting for.
Let us all play our part, how small it even may be and spread word as our religion also teaches us that Cleanliness is the half of faith”.
