Shramadan: After launch volunteers were divided into four groups. Souraj Mangalore and  a group of volunteers cleaned the road dividers in Hampankatta circle and surrounding area. Dr Rakesh Krishna guided about 30 students of Nitte College of Physiotherapy who cleaned both sides  of the Milagres Attavara Road off the dirt and garbage. Chethana, Ravi K R, Satish and others removed  the posters stuck to the bus stand walls near Milagres and cleaned the entire spot. Mohammad Shameem and  other volunteers took up the cleanliness work in front of Islamic Trust Complex. They also removed nearly half load of rubble lying on the footpath and helped the pedestrians in easy movement. They also removed the illegally put up banners, boards flex. 

Civil repair work: In the past weeks a blackspot littered by the public was cleaned on the V T Road  and was decorated with flower pots. Today it was given a face lift by civil repair work by using stones  and plastering. Mukesh Alva coordinated the work.  Clearing 3 tipper loads of garbage: Several black spots in the city prone to littering by public have  been identified by the volunteers and they have been cleaned and beautified by the volunteers of the  Abhiyan. Another such spot in a corner on the Milagres Attavara Road beside I M A building  was identified. Several loads of garbage and construction debris were lying in this spot since many years. So Dilraj Alva, Mohammad Nazir and other volunteers using JCB cleared nearly 3 tippers of  garbage from the spot.

Cleaning the railings: Nearly 200 feet long railing with boards from Hampankatta to Light House Hill  Road were thoroughly cleaned by the volunteers who also removed illegal advertisements and  posters stuck on the railings. Anand Adyar, Shishir Amin, Vikhyath Ullal and other volunteers painted  them giving them a new silvery look.
