All the employees/students participated in the cleanliness drives conducted at various locations.
The following are the highlights of the Old Age Home Visit programme organized on 11th September 2017:
The theme of Swachhta Pakhwada that has been observed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development was to spread cleanliness awareness and implementation across the surroundings with a focus for community led sanitation initiatives. It has been realized that lack of sanitation and hygiene has a far reaching impact on women health and safety. To implement this task a team of faculty members and NSS students visited a Women Old Age Home (APNA GHAR).
In this cleanliness drive we had distributed First-Aid/Hygiene Kits to the members of APNA GHAR. This Free Women Old Age Home has been established by Chairperson Dr. Nirmala Saxena under Venus Vikas Sansthan.
There we had spent a quality time with all the old women and also educated them about hygienic living. It was a nice session as they all were happy to receive kits as a token from Integral University. Dr. Nirmala Saxena was very thankful by the efforts of Integral University staff and students.
