Their relentless pursuit of a 'Clean & Green' Dhemaji has paid off, bringing a remarkable transformation to the region.

A Clean Sweep of Success

The journey towards achieving ODF+ status has been a long and challenging one. It required a community-wide effort, with residents coming together to adopt hygienic sanitation practices and make proper sanitation facilities a part of their daily lives. The district administration played a pivotal role in raising awareness and facilitating the construction of toilets in households and public places.

Empowering Communities

The Swachh Bharat Mission Gramin (SBM-G) has been instrumental in driving improvements in sanitation and hygiene across rural India, with a particular focus on achieving ODF status. In Dhemaji, this initiative not only eradicated open defecation but also encouraged responsible waste management and a commitment to maintaining a clean environment.

The achievement of 100% ODF+ status in Dhemaji is a stepping stone towards a cleaner and greener future for the district. It demonstrates that when communities, local governments, and state leadership unite for a common cause, transformative change is possible. The 'Clean & Green' Dhemaji that Minister Ranoj Pegu envisions is not just about sanitation; it's about fostering a sustainable and healthy environment for generations to come.

Acknowledging the Champions

Minister Ranoj Pegu also commended the district administration of Dhemaji and the dedicated SBM teams for their relentless efforts. Their commitment to the cause of cleanliness has not only elevated Dhemaji's status but has set an inspiring example for other regions to follow.

As Dhemaji district revels in this remarkable achievement, it stands as a testament to what can be accomplished when communities and government agencies collaborate with a shared vision.
