Breaking the stereotype and taking something up this summer for an internship is interesting. Everybody does their internship in some MNC but these students from Mumbai have signed up for Swach Bharat Internship 2018 which is an initiative of the Central Government. Under this program, students have to devote 100 hours working for sanitation related work in rural areas. These work include constructing and repairing toilets, installing sewage management system and more. The motto behind this is to spread awareness promoting safer sanitation method in the remote parts of Maharashtra.
The internship starts on 1st May’18 and ends on 31st July. Students have to devote 100 hours during this tenure.
Different colleges have started working on similar projects, as a part of this initiative. Students from KC College, Churchgate, have started working on a waste management plant in their adopted village of Karwale in Palghar district. RD College, Bandra, has decided to carry out similar activities in its adopted village of Indapur in Raigad district.
Students from MD College, Parel, also plan to spend five days in their adopted villages of Damanwadi and Tadwadi, near Badlapur and create awareness on various issues related to cleanliness including the use of dustbin and waste management. The students will lead by example and clean the streets.
