Braj, one of the most vibrant places in India, is a region mainly in Uttar Pradesh of India, around Mathura-Vrindavan. Though never a clearly defined political region in India, Braj is very well demarcated culturally. The area of around 2,000 square miles stretches from Mathura, Vrindavan, Jalesar, Agra, Hathras and Aligarh right up to Etah, Mainpuri and Farrukhabad districts. Braj is considered as the cultural capital of India in is the birth place of many dance forms, cuisines, arts, culture, etc. which has made its mark n the history. Government of India has recently declared the region as one of the most important tourist destination, which has opened the doors to development of this socially backward region. Despite being of such importance, Braj has been suffering from huge amount of garbage and filth all over as more than 50 million tourists (source: Ministry of Tourism, Government of India) visit the place every year, from all around the world. Lack of proper arrangements to dispose-off the waste is resulting in heavy accumulation on garbage everywhere in Braj. The amount of intoxication due to plastic and chemical waste is so much that more than 85% of ground water in this region is salty or polluted, causing more than 50 deaths per annum in its villages. Not only the soil, but the ancient water bodies are also suffering from squalor, making it nugatory for general use or to boost tourism. Though the Central as well as State Government has formed certain plans to boost the tourism and to maintain the hygiene of the region, much of the efforts are centred either at Mathura (political headquarter of the region) or in Vrindavan (sub-city of Mathura), and neglects other prominent places visited by millions every year. In our sincere effort and in order to compliment the work done by the Government, the project is focused on maintain the sanitation of three most important places of the region viz. Nand Gaon, Barsana and Kokila Van. All three falls on the same road, around 15miles north from district headquarter Mathura.
