Under the auspices of Ramakrishna Mission Swacchata Abhiyan, we have done our best to instill in the young minds respect for nature and its preservation. We have conducted 100 shows without any break in the last 3 months and have travelled around 4500 kms reaching out to nearly 75000 students. Each participating student has taken the Swacchata Oath”.
Prof M B Puranik said, “Government’s initiative of Swacchata Abhiyan became a mass movement in Mangalore thanks to the efforts of Ramakrishna Mission Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan. Through this Abhiyan, Ramakrishna Mission has shown what a spiritual & religious institution can do and how it can contribute towards wellness of the society. Its efforts to use magic as an apt instrument to reach out to young minds and educate them in cleanliness & their responsibilities is appreciable. This movement will be successful if all join their hands. “
Delivering his benedictory address, Swami Jitakamanandaji said, “Only if today’s children are rightly trained as to their responsibilities in maintaining their surroundings clean can we achieve our target of Swacch Bharath in a few years. It may require a generation’s time to realise this dream. Hence a start has been made by our Ashrama in this regard. Winning over the hearts of students through magic and instilling in them values contributing towards cleanliness was achieved through these shows. It was a challenge to organise 100 such shows in different institutions continuously. We congratulate and thank Sri Kudroli Ganesh & his team for their efforts and MRPL for their valuable sponsorship”
