Objective of the Swachh Bharat Summer Internship (SBSI) 2018 programme

The objective of this internship programme is to engage the youth across the country and develop their skill and orientation for sanitation related work, amplify mass awareness on cleanliness and cement the people’s movement (Jan andolan) aspect of Swachh Bharat Mission. This is in line with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call on October 2, 2014 for each individual to devote 100 hours to Swachhata through the year.

The programme is expected to not only provide a great learning experience to students but hopes to also further the existing measures undertaken by the government in ensuring a clean and healthy India.

“This is an opportunity for those young people who wish to contribute to the country, bring about a change in society and learn something in the process,” PM Modi said during his Mann Ki Batt.
