The program is an attempt to find real solutions to permanently eliminate the open garbage dumps and ugly spaces in the city. Over the last two years under “Prayaas” the Synchrony team and GHMC staff have fixed 32 such spots. The program has been only successful because of continuous support of GHMC and the work put in by more than 200 Synchrony Volunteers including people with disabilities.
