"Swachhata Pakhwada" as a part of "Swachhta Abhiyan" was initiated, with the objective of bringing a fortnight of intense focus on the issues and practices of Swachhata-meaning Cleanliness. To support this great initiative of GoI and to create an awareness about the need of cleanliness, Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences had organized many events during the Observation of Swachhata Pakhwada from 15th Jan 2020 to 31st Jan 2020.
“Cleanliness Drive in Karunya” was organized by Rotaract Club of Karunya under the Centre for Extension Activities on 28th Jan 2020. The entire activity happened under the supervision of Director (Student Affairs) Dr. S. Albones Raj. The event was successfully coordinated by the Club Coordinator Dr. L.D. Vijay Anand, and his team of Programme Officers. The event was effectively executed by the Club President Rtr. Jaya Prakash T and the other members of the club.
The main purpose of this Programme was to create awareness among our students about the need and importance of clean environment. Even the Teaching & Non-Teaching Staff were the essential part of this cleanliness drive. The students were divided into 8 different groups and were sent to various locations to make sure that no part of the campus was left unclean and unnoticed.
Nearly 250 Rotaract Club members and 20 Faculty coordinators participated in this drive. They all gathered near the main Administration block by 04.00 PM and the cleanliness drive was set into motion with an introductory speech that explained everyone about the noble initiative. The gloves and masks were distributed to the members ensuring hygiene during the drive. To have a smooth run, each of our Rotaract Board members were assigned a team with which they coordinated the drive in their respective sector.
Nearly 270+ members were a part of this drive. By organizing such events every citizen of India will have an understanding about their responsibility of ensuring cleanliness and be motivated to join hands together to make this initiative a successful mission.
