Moving towards a Swachh Bharat with #Shramdaan

Earlier this year, the Ghats in Varanasi were cleaned up by a determined team, led by Temsutula Imsong and Shailesh Pandey. Now called Mission Parijat (formerly, Mission Prabhu Ghat), the team collected more than 300 kg of waste during the 3-day mission. A month later, the mission was endorsed by the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

To fulfil our dream of a Swachh Bharat (a cleaner India), individual across 30+ cities in India started a collective effort in Nov 2015. This mission called Shramdaan brings together groups of people in different cities to voluntarily adopt public places, clean them up and maintain them on a regular basis.
