Monika Sharma and Dr. Vandana Verma
Universal sanitation and the dream of clean India is not a distinct one as “Swachh Bharat Mission” has been introduced on 2nd of October 2014 (145th birth anniversary of Bapu) by Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi at Rajghat, New Delhi. The present study was conducted in Hisar district of Haryana state (country-India). Two villages; Mangali and Aryanagar from Hisar I and Hisar II (respectively) were selected randomly. Twenty females, 20 males and 10 field functionaries from each village which made total sample to be 100. Knowledge of respondents regarding Swachh Bharat Mission was assessed. Low knowledge about the mission was reported among rural respondents. Further a training session of three days was organized in each village to impart knowledge on various aspects of the mission. 10 males and 10 females from each village were selected who had lowest knowledge scores. Respondents selected for training showed highly significant gain in knowledge at post-exposure stage (‘t’ value; 19.21** for females and 17.50** for males) regarding Swachh Bharat Mission. Hence a high need for campaigning and awareness generation programmes to improve the conditions in village areas was heartily felt.
