IDRF forerunner of  Clean India Mission since 2009


Swachh Bharat Abhiyan
 (Clean India Mission) is a national campaign by the Government of India launched on Mahatma Gandhi’s Birth Anniversary, on 2nd October 2014 by PM Narendra Modi.  While Clean India Mission has become a household word only now, IDRF has been executing this program since 2009 in Gujarat and 2013 in Telangana. This program is benefitting 14,000 Below Poverty Line (BPL) families in 225 villages. IDRF is now expanding to 3000 BPL families in Bengal in order to end open defecation and creating a safe and better environment.

In order to achieve this goal, IDRF is organizing “A Ramp with a Cause: A Charity Fashion Show and Dinner Gala” on Friday, November 13th, 2015 at Houston, Texas. IDRF is implementing this program with three partner-NGOs having an impeccable track record of service over two decades. Here is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the lives of these below poverty line families! Your tax-deductible contribution of $ 250 will enable a family to have a toilet at home or $1000 for four families to have toilets at home and not go out to defecate in the open.
