Role of NGOs in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was a cleanliness campaign by the government of India on the national level. The government had decided on the role of every public and private sector bank, government organizations, and the NGOs (Non-Government Organisations). Even every single citizen of the nation has a role in making the mission successful.

The various NGOs played a very important role in making Swachh Bharat Abhiyan reach every individual of the nation. Their important contribution is educating people towards accepting the habit of cleanliness and spreading it among the nearby people. Also, they educated the foundational body of society like women, children, and small business owners.

NGOs have also to check the proper functioning of the infrastructure prepared for the Swachh Bharat Mission and ask the government for needed modification through applications. Even, they also can collect funds and gather people for mass cleanliness drives in the localities.

Another important role of the NGOs is to adopt a colony or society and conduct a cleanliness drive. They can also spread awareness through educating people in the schools and colleges and distribute related pamphlets. In many areas, NGOs have contributed to building new toilets for the people who can’t afford it. These mentioned responsibilities of NGOs indicate that they play a very important role in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
