Under the Nirmal Gujarat programme of the Government of Gujarat, all the Municipalities of the State were ordered to initiate door to door waste collection programme in the cities. Under this programme, the Bhuj Municipality, in 2008, invited the voluntary organizations, Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan and Sahjeevan, for implementing the door to door waste collection in Bhuj City.

This programme was then initiated with 11 Sakhi bens  covering 2200 properties under door to door waste collection. Sahjeevan played the role of creating awareness among the citizens about the programme, and Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan is involved in capacity building  of theSakhi bens

This programme scaled up to 126 sakhi bens covering 20,000 properties over a period of time.
