The dedicated team is overseeing an initiative aimed at seamlessly incorporating cleanliness into the everyday lives of communities. Notably, attractive prizes have been announced for the cleanest village, including:

  • I Prize: Rs. 2 lakhs
  • II Prize: Rs. 1 lakh
  • III Prize: Rs. 75,000.

The inaugural assessment of the project is scheduled for December, under the direction of a dedicated committee. Subsequently, the initiative will transition into a recurring program, conducted every quarter. Emphasizing active involvement of the community, the campaign endeavors to engage individuals across various age groups, including youth, the elderly, and children.

In order to cultivate a strong sense of cleanliness among young students, schools will organize quarterly competitions focusing on various crafts like poster making, essay writing, and others. The primary objective behind these activities is to instill the values of cleanliness in the minds of the youth. These competitions will serve not only as a means to foster pride among the students but also provide them with an opportunity to represent their respective villages and effectively express their thoughts through essays.

Collaboration has been solicited from various entities including Self-Help Groups (SHGs), Panch members, Sarpanchs, and officials to ensure the triumphant implementation of the initiative. The active participation of these entities holds great importance in effectively disseminating knowledge about waste segregation and other crucial elements of Swachhata within the community.

The main objective of this initiative is to promote continuous efforts towards maintaining cleanliness, with Sattari serving as a role model for the entire state. By doing so, we strive to not only contribute to a cleaner and more hygienic community, but also to the overall enhancement of the state’s cleanliness standards.
