In a run-up to the upcoming Kumbh Mela 2019, the Prayagraj Mela Pradhikaran has launched the Swachh Kumbh Champ Campaign on the Global Handwashing Day, October 15th, 2018. The Campaign aims to mobilise people to come out and get directly involved with cleanliness efforts in their day-to-day life and in their immediate surrounding. The Campaign will run from October 15, 2018 till March 4, 2019.
So, let us join hands, put our thinking caps on and demonstrate our commitment to a SWACHH KUMBH and SWACHH BHARAT. The purpose of the campaign is to identify Swachhta Champions from amongst citizens/organisations/institutions, based on their activity, approach, or methodology. Participants need to undertake at least one activity under any of the 10 categories given below, and document it. The documentation should include pre-activity and post-activity status, and should be documented in the form of a 100 word writeup and two photographs and mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org p>
Come join the Swachh Kumbh Champ Campaign to make a mark and grab your opportunity to become Swachhta Champ this week! For more information about how to get involved with the Campaign, write to us at email@example.com
