VISAKHAPATNAM: Adopting several methods in tune with the government initiatives as a part of the Swachh campaign, Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) is promoting sanitation under its CSR activities. Under the Swachh Vidyalaya programme, it constructed 86 toilets in 33 government schools in the district till now. This has benefited around 5,000 children.

As a part of the campaign, Bal Swachhta Jagruti, a unique sanitation awareness programme, based on the belief that children are the game changers of the communities, was launched in the schools. With the aid of audio visual medium and taking advantage of the smart class facility in the government schools, awareness sessions on basic hygiene practices like washing hands before partaking food, use of toilets regularly and maintenance of the same are conducted in schools on Thursday. On the occasion, RINL CMD P Madhusudan said,

“Swachh Bharat campaign became a national movement and the cleanliness drive in the plant and township with the residents becoming active participants is part of this mass movement.”
Parivarthan, an awareness session on hygiene, fuelled interaction with the adolescent girls which was another initiative of the RINL. Under the Swachh Visakha, the RINL had undertaken partnerships with the GVMC in improving the waste collection system by providing 30 dumper bins for better waste management in the surrounding areas of Gajuwaka.

“Taking into account region’s terrain, a solar powered water supply system has been installed for the utilisation of the villagers at Nadumveethi, a tribal hamlet in Paderu mandal.
To prevent open defecation, individual household toilets have been provided to all the houses situated in the village,” the CMD added.

“The RINL is making efforts to address infrastructure deficit in sanitation with an increased emphasis in terms of sustainability by incorporating required awareness component too,” he added.
