Swachh Bharat Summer Internship Program

Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's clarion call on 2nd October 2014 for each individual to devote at least 100 hours to Swachhata through the year, the Ministry of Human Resource Development in association with the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation has launched the 'Swachh Bharat Summer Internship – 100 Hours of Swachhata'.
The program aims to:
  • Develop the skill and orientation of youth for sanitation related work
  • Bring youth across the country an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the swachhata revolution
  • Integrate youth in the community service in rural areas in the run up to the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi

Candidates are eligible to choose their location of internship (village/district) and hence the village of our choice was Rampura.

Rampura village is located in Gurugram District, Haryana and consists of about 200 houses and a population of approximately 4000. Every household has basic amenities like electricity, fresh water and sanitation except for awareness about Solid Waste Management. SWM includes:
  • Waste Collection Drives (households/ common or shared spaces)
  • SAFAAYI: Street Cleaning, Drain Cleaning, Cleaning of back alleys
This fundraising campaign aims to help bring about positive changes in Solid Waste Management in Rampura Village.

Over the duration of our internship, we plan to carry out a list of activities for which we would require funds. The list of activities are:

1. Spreading awareness about SWM by approaching households/ shops
2. Organising "Swacchathon"- A marathon for Swacchata #RunForRampura wherein two saplings will be planted for every person who participates (open to public)
3. AARAMBH: Sending messages about Swacchata through Art
4. Gathering Volunteers and cleaning streets and drains.

These activities require resources and a good number of equipments, especially with the number of volunteers we plan to involve. We would hence require funds and would welcome any amount of donation wholeheartedly.

We would like to thank all the contributors who have helped us with the experience in making Rampura truly a better place to live in. This experience has taught us that change must come from within for it  to sustain and the change makers must believe in the process more than the results.
We would also like to credit the success of our mission to the Sarpach of the village Mr. Harjas Yadav for all his support and encouragement.
We wish the people of Rampura a lifetime of happiness and prosperity.

Thank you once again

Hey y'all!

Firstly we are amazed and humbled with the incredible response that we have received. So far we have raised around Rs. 16,500.
We plan to provide Rampura village with a self sustaining biodegradable waste disposal system by building a compost pit.
Here are some pictures of the progress made in the village.

Witness Rampura transform, as artists come together and paint Rampura in their colours!

To new beginnings. To colourful beginnings.
