Swachh Vidyalaya Mission, a CSR initiative
Securitas in India is proud to be associated with Swachh Vidyalaya Mission: Sanitation in School project.
Swachh Vidyalaya Mission: Shri Narendra Modi, Hon'ble Prime Minister, has called upon the corporate sector to be a part of this project by contributing generously for the construction of toilets in the Government Schools of Delhi.
According to a study, most of the young girls dropout of school by 12-13 years of age since these schools don’t have any toilet facilities and they have to go to open fields, due to which they feel embarrassed and scared as they are potential targets for assault. Therefore, building toilets in girls govt. schools is a priority. Statistics show that educated mothers even in the poor homes push for their children to be educated, thus this is not CSR alone but a step towards nation building.
The Walsons Group and Securitas is committed to this initiative and plans to build a 100 of these toilets in girls govt. school over the next several years.
