Eshan Balbale ( Bridged a Muddy space)

          Eshan took the inspiring step of constructing a bamboo bridge across nullah in Sathe Nagar, one of the many slums in Mumbai. Children of this area have to go through 100 feet of a smelly, infectious and overflowing nullah to reach their school. Eshan became aware of this critical issue during one of his visit and took this initiative without the support of any Govt. or Municipal authorities. His father financed the entire 2.5 lakhs that was required to build this strong bamboo bridge of 100 feet . Barely 17years of age and a class XII student proved that age can never become a restricting factor for youngsters to take up any social responsibilities. Not just to rest on one laurels, he went ahead and founded Nirbhay Yuva Pratishthan which helps to solve the much required sanitation problems faced by the residents of Sathe Nagar and he is taking the required steps in that direction.

Babar Ali (Youngest Headmaster)

Babar Ali was named the 'youngest headmaster in the world' by BBC in October 2009, at the age of 16. He is the first member of his family ever to get a proper education.It all started in 2002, when Babar was nine years old and on his way back from school he would see children from his neighborhood doing odd jobs or just idling away time. He wondered if he could teach them what he learnt in school and gathered a few children under a tree in his backyard. They played school-school and Babar spoke to them about his school and what he learnt there. The children were very interested and what started as a game gradually grew in number and Babar's school Anand Siksha Niketan was institutionalized in 2002 with the strength of eight.
Babar started his day at 7 in the morning with house hold chores and used to walk five kilometers to his school. He was the ideal student in school but what he did after school astonished the whole world. While most children crib about their allowances and extra work this boy was helping to make the world a better place. When the children of the village and localities are done with their chores and jobs during the day, they come to attend Babar's afternoon school.In 2012 the school had 60 regular attendees and over 220 students on roll-call and 800 students in total, with 10 volunteer teachers teaching grades 1 through 8.Babar Ali's story is a testament to the fact that if you have a will then surely there is a way.

Jodie Underhill (Garbage Girl)

Jodie is the Co-founder of Waste Warriors. UK-born Jodie Underhill, along with her group of volunteers, has been cleaning up some of the most visited pilgrimage trails of India in the Himalayan belt. Not only do they hike up the pilgrims' trail picking up trash along the way, they also segregate, recycle and manage the waste responsibly. In addition to this, they conduct programs to educate people (especially children) about the environment, try to find solutions for waste-related problems like access to clean water, health and sanitation problems and the way careless waste disposal affects animal and wildlife. Jodie's first mass clean up in McLeod Ganj, the home of the Dalai Lama was attended by over 100 people and it proved to her she wasn't the only person who wanted a cleaner India. She formed the group the Mountain Cleaners in April 2009. The Mountain Cleaners are a group of volunteers who are committed to cleaning up the Indian Himalayas, little by little through a combination of direct action, liaison and awareness raising. "In India, people have a terrible attitude towards those who clear waste. They are the invisible people. Without them India would have disappeared under its garbage" says Jodie, who won Times Now's Amazing Indian Award in 2012. She is excited about the Swachh Bharat initiative, and is eager to make a presentation to the prime minister.All of us can make a difference and curb the growing garbage crisis. Vow never to throw garbage on the ground and teach children to do the same, segregate your waste at home, sign up to a waste collection service whenever possible, say no to plastic bags and carry a cloth bag while shopping. Let's all take that small step towards a cleaner India.
