Bunch Of Swachh Fools Are On A Mission To Make Raipur 100% Clean

From a team of seven to around 100 active members now, ?Bunch Of Swachh Fools' are ruling Chhattisgarh's Raipur in terms of cleanliness. Their motto is to make Raipur 100% clean by fixing each and every spot of the city. They look out for dirty patches in the city and fix them every Sunday. As of now, they have cleaned around 159 spots in 147 Sundays.

Meet the ?Bunch Of Swachh Fools' who aim at making Raipur swachh. It was initiated by a group of seven people in the year 2014 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi started the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan for cleanliness in our country. Inspired by the efforts of seven ?fools' people from all walks of life started joining in and now it is a team of around 100 active members.

From unattended dirty spots to a garbage dump, a polluted lake, this Bunch of Fools is cleaning anything and everything. Along with making the city swachh, they also spread a message of do-the-clean-up-yourself.

Weekly clean ups start with the research and development team, which goes out in the city every Monday in search of a dirty spot, by Wednesday, the team submits the report and transfers work to the creative team, who then comes out with a solution on how to clean up that area.

Saturday, awareness team goes to the chosen spot, listens to local people's problems, goes to local bodies of the respective area and tries to make them aware. They also have a nukad-natak team, which spreads awareness about why one should opt for cleaning up their surroundings.

Every Sunday is the clean up day. As of now, they have cleaned around 159 spots in 147 Sundays and are continuously looking for more spots to make the city 100% clean.

After cleaning every spot, they paint a nearby wall and write a message on it. This is done in order to promote cleanliness and hygiene.

Apart from clean up drives, the group also has a ?Swachh Van' which is solely used for the purpose of cleaning a dirty area.

The Bunch of Fools have also created an app to showcase stories of the clean-up activities and motivate other cities to act and work towards cleanliness and hygiene. The group also uploads details about their clean up drives and other activities on their social platforms regularly, in the hope that their message spreads not just within Raipur, but across India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi personally met these swachh warriors last year in Raipur to appreciate their good work towards the Clean India Mission.
