Dancing Dugong has collaborated with The Kachrewaale Project (TKP) to introduce a two-day, awareness-cum-volunteering certificate program on conservation. 


TKP is a non-profit, based out of Neil, focused entirely on waste-management.

While we’ve designed these sessions for children, we see no reason why we should introduce an age cap. 


These sessions will be conversational and will be conducted personally by

Garima Poonia, TKP’s founder.
