Amrita Vidyalayam Sadashivgad, Karwar carried out various programmes under Swachhata Hi Seva 2018 on September 15, 2018 as a precursor to the launch of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi and in the run-up to the 4th anniversary of the Swachh Bharat Mission. To emphasize this concept, a cleanliness drive was organized out on the streets of Amritnagar by students of classes VI to IX, where students picked up plastic and paper waste, removed weeds and groomed the surrounding areas of the school.
On this occasion, the Swachhata Hi Seva programme was explained to the students, and they were further motivated to spread awareness about the programme in their neighbourhoods. Motivational videos were shown to all the students as an incitement. In addition, all the students participated in cleaning the classrooms and the school premises. Students were enthusiastic and determined not just to clean the area, but also pledged to keep it clean and spread the message of cleanliness among others. The cleanliness drive was carried out with the goal of sustaining their responsibility towards their environment.
