It's women power all the way, well and truly

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: It is not just senior citizens or men who can lead the residents' movement in colonies. Women too can. And they are doing it.

The Kimtee Colony Resident Women Welfare Association (KCRWWA) in Tarnaka is one instance.

Formed in 2002, this association, comprising housewives and women from over 500 households in the area, has been in the forefront of implementing the `Clean Hyderabad' scheme of the Municipal Corporation in their locality.

The members include women from three colonies - Kimtee Colony, Gokul Nagar and Sai Nagar (a Kimtee Colony extension) with a core committee of 15 housewives. One each for the 15 lanes.

The KCRWWA handles street cleaning, household garbage collection and transfer of the same to MCH garbage collection vehicles. Funded by MCH, they recruit the workers and monitor their activities on a daily basis.

"The governing body meets on a Sunday every month, apart from the daily interaction. It has been good going so far," says T. Dhanalakshmi, president of the association.
