Swacch Mangaluru 2nd Phase begins

Standard

Swacch Mangaluru for Swacch Bharath” is a novel initiative of Ramakrishna Mission, Mangaluru undertaken on special request from Government of India This initiative was flagged off on the 1st February 2015 in a special programme at Ramakrishna Math, Mangalore. In a nutshell its about 4000 youths dedicating their precious time on 40 weekends in 40 different wards of the Mangaluru city in cleaning and also in creating an awareness about cleanliness.

Cleaning the nation is not a day’s job. Neither can this be achieved by just few legislations by Govt. agencies. It demands participation from each and every responsible citizen. Ramakrishna Mission has always stood in the forefront in the service of the society. We seize this opportunity to serve the nation through leading from the front by taking up this cleanliness drive.

Our motive is not to sweep Mangalore clean, but to create an awareness among the people, particularly in the younger generation about its importance and their role in keeping their surroundings cleaner and greener.

On this occasion we would also like to thank Nitte Group of Institutions and MRPL for their continued support, cooperation and patronage for this initiative.

In the 1st phase, about 20 drives were successfully organized in different parts of Mangalore thanks to the dedicated efforts & support of the volunteers, devotees and well-wishers.  Now that we enter the 2nd phase of the Abhiyan we would appreciate if more & more volunteers join our brigade to help us realize our tryst with destiny. We hope interested public will utilize this unique opportunity to pay back to society by contributing their mite in the national regeneration.

Ramakrishna Mission has organized Varna Rupa art camp on the 2nd & 3rd October where leading artists from Dakshina Kannada & Udupi Dists will unleash their talents on the theme, “Swacch Manas, Swacch Bharat, Shreshta Bharat” . On the 4th October the 2nd phase of Swacch Mangaluru Drive will begin with Swami Muktidanandaji, Adhyaksha, Ramakrishna Ashrama, Mysore inaugurating the 21st drive. This will be followed by a Seminar on the theme, “Cleanliness: Internal & External” at Ramakrishna Math at 9.30 am. The details of the prgramme are given in the invitation below:
