1. Creating knowledge nuggets to be texted once a fortnight, based on news. These may include events as well as news from across the world.
2. Chintanís mobilizers will be given a 20 minute debrief every week to so they can share this in their area meetings
3. Safai Sena meets every month. This will be an opportunity to discuss a summary of critical news and what it means to wastepickers of Safai Sena. This will be facilitated by Chintan.
4. Set up a kabari directory so we are able to deepen outreach
1. Wastepickers usually need some training to speak in public without hesitation or being conscious of their dialect or even, poor Hindi as many speak Bhojpuri etc. and are often mocked. Training in confident public speaking will be essential to our objective and has been a demand previously as well. 50 wastepickers at least will be trained in public speaking, with at least half being women.
2. Safai Sena must be able to self-represent via its website, which need to be upgraded and widely disseminated. This will be done through mailers, the media and through Google tools, after the wastepickers give a go ahead of the content. Chintanís technical knowledge person will constantly upgrade the content as it is technically challenging to most people. Every quarter, the updates will be shared with Safai Sena.
3. Delhi and the region has several meetings on waste and issues related to issues that impact wastepickers. The technical knowledge person will keep a track of these and ensure that some wastepickers attend these events and are able to place their views. For example, there were at least 6 conferences on inclusive cities and on waste in the last year, pointing out to the incredible network of opportunities for wastepickers.
4. Several schools are good sites for spreading the idea as they not only provide wastepickers with waste at source, but can learn from him or her and support them. Wastepickers will be trained to talk about waste is lucid, simple terms, with confidence to teachers etc. and even, where possible, at assembly, so children learn en masse and the message is able to spread. At least 10 schools will be covered in diverse ways, based on the schools own capacity and teachers.
