Mangaluru, 18 Mar 2017: Ramakrishna Mission here has been carrying on Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan for the past 2 years. Through various modules Ashram is trying to create awareness among the public about hygiene and cleanliness. In the third phase, about 60 different teams in Mangalore have joined hands with the ashrama in this Swacchata Abhiyan. We have already successfully completed 260 drives over 23 weeks.
Along with wielding broom in cleaning the city, creating awareness programme reaching out to more and more people is the special objective of our Ashrama. Hence, we have already successfully arranged seminars and workshops for college students, Swacch Manas Programmes, workshops for house-wives, door to door visit of houses creating awareness about segregation of waste and garbage, Swacch Bharath rally, programmes on Doordarshan and radio and print media etc.
Adding to this list is a new initiative of Ramakrishna Mission, ‘Magic for Cleanliness.’ The Mission will be organizing about 30 magic shows by Kudroli Ganesh and group over the next 15 days at indifferent parts of Mangaluru and nearby. Entertainment coupled with educating the masses in cleanliness is the objective behind this initiative.

Daily 2 shows from 5.30pm to 6.30 pm and 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm will be held in pre-designated different venues. Already different teams have been formed in 30 different locations for conducting this show as also for giving due publicity in their respective locality. Each team will be distributing the handbill about the show to about 2000 people in the locality. This series of shows will conclude at Ramakrishna mutt, Mangaladevi, here on Sunday, April 2.
