About the Programme

This innovative Behavioral Change Education Programme ‘Swachhagraha’ draws inspiration from ‘Satyagraha’ spearheaded by mahatma Gandhi during the freedom struggle movement. The project aims to catalyse a sense of duty, dignity and self-respects in the minds of citizens. It also looks forward to engage people of India in bringing out a change, similar in a scale to that of India’s freedom movement, in the form of ‘Creating a Culture of Cleanliness.’

Mr. Shillin R Adani, Trustee Adani foundation said, “A culture of cleanliness or Swachhagraha has the power of overcoming many societal evil and heralding progress in the form of prosperity, wellbeing, even harmony and peace. I congratulate the young ambassadors from LPU for taking up this noble mission and wish them success in their endeavors in building a cleaner India.”

Adani Foundation has till now collaborated with 5,700 schools and institutions under project Swachhagraha across 19 states in India, enrolling more than 80,000 swacchagraha dal members, spreading message further to 26.50 lakh students.
