The Problem

Sanitation problems, littering and open defecation and are issues haunting Indian society. While the GoI has initiated the Swachh Bharat Campaign with the prime aim to make India open defecation free by 2019, citizens need to take up the cause to make it succeed. With 70 % of India’s population below age 35, this is an opportune moment to make lifestyle changes. IIM Raipur steps in to raise the pitch by getting people to stand up and take notice with Prayaas- IIM Raipur Marathon 2017.

What we intend to do?

We intend to get the people to look up and take notice. On the 12th of February, we intend to have Eastern India’s biggest ever marathon. The people of India, led by its students, will decide to no longer look the other way. We will come together and walk together to highlight the need for cleanliness – in our homes, schools and public spaces. We will take a pledge to have a cleaner city and a cleaner India.
