Today 2 Indians die a minute from air pollution, diarrhoea kills more children under the age of 5 than any other disease and lack of sanitation has allowed for the spread of deadly diseases. We as citizens need to step up and start a Swachhagraha.
NDTV-Dettol Banega Swachh India is looking for swachhagrahis, waste warriors, women, men and children who are helping make India clean and influence clean habits.
If you have done anything in the following field, then, we request you to take part in our Swachh Warrior Contest. You can also nominate two of your friends to take the #SwachhIndia challenge.
W waste management
A air pollution
Maybe you are planting trees, talking to people about sanitation, physically cleaning up places, coming up with ideas to clean the air, reduce plastic use, educating people on how to be clean and healthy. If you have done work in any or all of these areas, send in your entries – 5 photos, a small write up of what you have done and the impact that has been created. NDTV will pick the top three people and ideas and on the 2nd of October, which is also celebrated as Rashtriya Swachhta Divas, will showcase their work on our channels. Moreover, the winners will also get a chance to be part of our 12-hour Cleanathon and meet our campaign ambassador Amitabh Bachchan.
