Rackchham gets its act together on SWM
Inspired by the Swachh Bharat Mission, the people of Rackchham in Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh have been doing their bit to keep their village beautiful and clean. The residents and the Panchayat work together to efficiently manage their solid waste.
With increase in generation of solid waste including plastics, management of the same is a huge challenge in both rural and urban areas of the country. To address this, the district administration of Peddapalli in Telangana has embarked on an initiative called Swaccha Shukravaram or Clean Friday and Panchasutralu (5 principles of waste segregation), both outreach programmes to carry out swachhata activities in all the villages.
Srikakulam in Andhra Pradesh has developed three short videos which are being shown in every village for sensitization and awareness generation. Focus of this video is on the importance of toilets to protect the dignity of women.
