Students taking part in the cleanliness awareness campaign organised the by the team from IIM Rohtak.

Sparsh, the Social Development Cell of the Indian Institute of Management Rohtak, recently organised a two-day awareness campaign on the theme ‘Sanitation, Public Hygiene and Waste Management’ in three villages of Haryana. The drive, that will take place throughout the coming month, is an attempt to support the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan currently being undertaken by the Centre.

The first day of the campaign focused on the students of a Government school in the village of Majra, which has a population of 12,000 people. The students from the institute organised drawing competitions for students of classes 1 to 5 on the themes of environmental cleanliness and hygiene. Students of classes 6 to 9 presented their views on cleanliness and their understanding of issues that India faces in the field of public hygiene. Many children were given prizes for their contribution to the campaign.

The second day saw action at Government schools in the villages of Kheri Sadh and Garhi Bohar. The children showcased their talent with drawings on the theme of cleanliness. The students of classes 6 to 9 came up with speeches that highlighted the theme ‘Swachhta sarkaar ki nahi, humari zimmedari hai’ (Cleanliness is the responsibility of all of us, not just the Government).

P. Rameshan, the IIM Rohtak Director, was present at Kheri Sadh to encourage the efforts of the students. There were prizes distributed to the students with the best drawings and speeches. Awareness campaigns were also held for women that focused on personal hygiene.

Sparsh, the Social Development Cell at IIM Rohtak, works to encourage the spirit of social responsibility among the students of the institute and others.
