In response to Hon. Prime Minister’s appeal to the corporate world for their contribution in ‘Swacchha Vidyalay Abhiyan’, Persistent Foundation has taken up the task. We have decided not only to support all Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) schools but also to lead the CII Pune chapter on Swacchha Vidyalay Abhiyan. Foundation has pledged for construction / refurbishment of toilet blocks in 61 PMC schools. The project was flagged off at the hands of Hon. Commissioner of PMC, Mr. Kunal Kumar on 2nd October 2014.
Along with construction and refurbishment, regular maintenance and efforts toward behavior change are pivotal for the success of this initiative. The corporate world is also working towards these soft issues along with infrastructure development.
I appeal to the corporate world to come forward in large numbers and support the noble cause.
Wishing the project all success…
