Jalandhar, July 24, 2019: Under ‘Swachtta Internship’, 25 volunteers of the NSS Wing of the Apeejay College of Fine Arts (ACFA), Jalandhar, went to village Salarpur which has been adopted by ACFA with the motto to make them aware about clean surroundings.
During this internship, the NSS volunteers began with their cleanliness campaign and cleaned the classrooms, office and ground of the Primary Wing and high school. Not only this, the volunteers also told the students of the village about the necessity of maintaining hygiene, especially in this monsoon when various kinds of fevers as Dengue, Cholera and Malaria frequently occur due to water logging and garbage around them. The volunteers also discussed about the remedial measures against such illness and certain ways to keep their surroundings clean.
College Principal, Dr Sucharita Sharma, opined that such initiatives teach students one of the important lessons of life, i.e. Humanity. Through such internships, they learn not only to make themselves a good human being and ultimately a good citizen but also to make their society a better place to live in.
She also appreciated the efforts of Dr Apra, Dean, NSS Wing, for the successful completion of the cleanliness programme.
