Jakara Sevadars rallied at the Ravidas Temple in Selma, California to start a new recycling initiative in the Fresno valley in an attempt to kick of Sikh Environment Day. The Jakara Movement along with The Sikh Council of Fresno united to distribute recycling bins to all the local Gurdwaras. The Jakara Movement sevadar Harnoor Singh led the march for recycling along with Bhinda Singh.
"Well I was a part of the Green Gurdwara camp in the past, and we told kids how they could be more environmentally conscious in our Gurdwaras, well here is a real opportunity to get the work started". Harnoor Singh has been a part of Misl Fresno for 3 years now and takes part in many Jakara events such as, Bhujangi, Jakara Juniors, and our Meal Sharing Programs.
"We don't get a chance to do stuff like this back where I'm from, This is a great opportunity to be an active part of my local Sangat". Bhinda Singh, a Selma native, and one of our newer members all the way from Scotland was overcome with excitement as he carried two recycling bins over his shoulders and made his way over to his first Gurdwara pit stop.
