On June 8th Saturday 2024, Pennsylvania State residents joined hands as dedicated volunteers of the global non-profit organization Dr. Shri. Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari Pratishthan (DSNDP), undertaking a Adopt-A-Highway cleanup drive in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) at 1262 Newark Rd, Toughkenamon, PA-19374.This cleanliness drive by DSNDP drew 10 volunteers at Chester County who collected 12 big size bags of trash resulting in collection of around 300 pounds of waste.

In alignment with the motto “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” (The world is one family), DSNDP aims to foster a brighter future by advocating for cleanliness drives in collaboration with the US government by undertaking nationwide cleanliness drives since July 2022. These activities are executed under the guidance of the founders of the organisation Dr. Shri Appasaheb Dharmadhikai and Dr. Shri Sachindada Dharmadhikari.

Earlier in Pennsylvania, the organization also carried out other cleanliness activities via Adopt- a Highway initiative in collaboration with Pennsylvania Department of transportation across 6 cities involving a total of 117 volunteers who worked for around 224 volunteer hours, and collected 182 bags of waste resulting in approx. 2730 pounds of trash.

Within the North America continent, DSNDP continues to collaborate with 18 states and 73 cities across the United States for nationwide cleanliness drive including 20 different programs such as Adopt-Highway/Park/Beach/ Street/ River etc. During these cleanliness drives, DSNDP has successfully engaged 1899 volunteers, actively collecting more than 31000 pounds of trash, resulting in significant cost savings for the government. The organization has received accolades from various state and county governments in the form of 37 certificates and 50 signboards within the nation.

The organization is also involved in tree plantation across 15 states and 33 cities within the US. DSNDP is also involved in health initiatives such as the Women’s Cancer Awareness Conference successfully hosted in February 2023 and blood/ plasma donation drives in Canada and the United States in recent years.
