The exhibition was amazing and a great initiative to create awareness. Our foundation and Swachh Bharat have collaborated on many projects since 2018.”
” The exhibition shows the value of e-waste material from which we can make so many things. Our ‘pathway’ foundation makes stuff from tailors’ scarp. We collect them from shops and make so many things like dining table covers, soft toys, purses or so on. Pune needs more exhibitions and programs like Toycathon,” said Arva Kapasi, Pathway Foundation.
