Shramdaan India invites you to participate in the second edition of the Shramdaan Conclave. It is being organised by Raipur District Administration (Chhattisgarh) and the volunteer group Bunch of Fools on 15 and 16 April 2017.
The conference aims to chart a course for public participation in cleanliness and sanitation across India. It also seeks to deliberate upon channelising the energy of the masses towards #SwachhBharat.
Shramdaan is a forum comprising citizens who have come together to take ownership of cleanliness by way of cleaning up public spaces. In the process, they hope to have a say in the way ‘My Clean India’ or ‘Swachh Bharat’ is being achieved in the country.
On 23 November 2015, groups from different parts of India came together for Shramdaan, which involved coordinated efforts towards improving cleanliness and sanitation in cities. With the help of a WhatsApp group, different volunteer groups pooled in ideas, shared their accomplishments and appreciated the work done by other groups.
The Prime Minister himself acknowledged and appreciated the efforts.
Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi started leading from the front with his Swachh Bharat Mission, citizens have become energetic and purposeful about working to build a clean India. This presented us with a rare opportunity to rally people around the noble cause of cleanliness, which is also the goal of Shramdaan.
Imagine a population of over 125 crore, with each one taking responsibility for keeping their space clean. It is an opportunity for everyone to stake a claim to cleanliness in their surroundings.
