Mop – checked, brush – checked, broom – checked, floor chemical – checked ….. It was quite an excitement at 8: 00 am in the morning as we all gathered for an event that we had never participated before; Deerclean. Deerclean is an community service campaign organized by Deerwalk Services where employees gather as squad wise, visit a government school and help the school clean its environment.

Squad A organized a Deerclean event on Saturday, 14th July 2018. The school selected was Shree Panchakanya Madhyamik Vidhyalaya, Budhanilkantha and the event was coordinated by Om Hari Maharjan. We headed to Budhanilkantha at 8:30 am. We stopped at Shivapuri Green View Restaurant near Budhanilkantha temple for breakfast. We had a heavy breakfast as we all knew we got a lot of moping, brushing and cleaning to do. As we reached the school around 10:00 am, we were shocked to see the school’s environment : toilets, taps and passage behind school building were dirtier than our imagination. We divided ourselves to six teams consisting 5-6 people each. The cleaning apparatus was divided to each team that consisted of mop, brush, cleaning chemical, detergent, clothes, gloves, apron etc. Each team selected part of school they wanted to clean. And we were all set for go.

Classrooms were dirty, ground and passage were dirtier and toilets were the dirtiest. Half and hour past the cleaning program started, everybody was seen soaked in sweat and dust. But the determination to clean the school was still on. Some of us carried water to top of three-storey building, while some of us washed and mopped the floor with detergent. “Had I cleaned so much in my home, my wife would have loved me a lot“, someone cracked a joke in the meantime. After the classrooms were cleaned, it was the turn for toilets, ground, passage and taps. We carried water from the taps, brushed the marble and toilet seats with chemicals and cleaned it. We cleaned the ground, passage and tap together. It took a team of 34 people around three and half hour to clean the school without any break.

The program came to halt around 2 pm when everybody of us gathered in the ground, collected the cleaning tools. We could not wash them because taps at school ran out of water and we decided to clean these tools in office building. At last, we handed some pencils and notebooks to the principal of the school to distribute these to students. The program ended with the Principal providing us a letter of appreciation for our help. As we take the letter, it felt amusing and all of us shouted with happiness. After seeing clean environment, happiness in principal face and letter of appreciation, the hard work for straight three and half hours was worth it.

We departed from the school around 2:00 pm and reached the same restaurant where we had breakfast previously for lunch. We had lunch and left for office around 3 : 00 pm. We reached office around 3:45 pm. Some us of sited back for cleaning tools. We cleaned the tools and kept them in store. And finally, the event ended.

This initiative that deerwalk has taken is good and responsible towards community. During the program, my attention was taken by this piece of notice inside a classroom.

Someone, probably one of the students in school has modified the original message of this notice “Students will be charged Rs.25 for littering inside school premises “ to “Students will not be charged Rs. 25 for littering inside school premises “. It is unlikely Deerwalk would ever visit the same school again and there is a high chance that the school may come to same dirty state. Unless we teach students to clean their own school by themselves, this problem can never be cut off completely. It could have been better if the school had called a group of students to participate and collaborate with Deerwalk team to clean their school. Nevertheless, we learn by doing. Participating students themselves and teaching them to clean their own premises could be more effective than we visiting their school and cleaning by ourselves. We should involve the students too in upcoming Deerclean events.
