  1. The commitment of keeping Chitral clean and green is a great initiative.The prorams should focus the schools and colleges and inculcate in them a sense of responsibility to the students so each and every students should be aware of the practical importance of plantation plus cleanliness. The teachers should ask them how many students took part in the plantation week and really planted trees.The students should be trained to use dustbins for the rubbish with a message that they should also keep their homes clean and their surrounding clean and at home they should not consider that keeping the house clean is the responsibility of either the mother or elder sisters or aunties.At the same time they should also be taught to do manual work as our young shy away with the manual work.we don’t know what we are going to transmit to our younger generation if the present state of affairs remains the same
