Cleanliness is next to Godliness. This project is a helping hand to the PM’s “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”.
Awareness campaigns and door to door surveys are done by Children, Interns and volunteers of LCF. People are made aware that health plays an important role in the community hygiene, to prevent illness and have positive health attitude, correct and complete knowledge of health is necessary. Health is cleanliness and cleanliness is one of the main defences against diseases, whether contagious or self-generated. LCF has installed toilets in J&K under this project. Awareness for cleanliness is spread by organising Rallies and Nukkad Natak’s
LCF is also building a Hygiene Index which will measure various parameters of hygiene to understand the progress that has been made and the scope of further improvement. Littering and spitting cases have come down considerably in areas around all LCF Centres. People are being sensitized to keep their surroundings clean as the resulting sickness due to unclean environment causes suffering, and loss of opportunities to earn a living or gain an education. In different centres different groups are involved in the project so that a Disease Free Zone is created in all areas.
