“All participants will be given a Swachh Bharat Internship Certificate on completion of their internship and its approval by the parent institution,” he said, adding, “Two curriculum credits will also be given to interns whose internship reports are found eligible to get credits by the parent institution. The best 3 interns/teams will be recognized at college, university, state and national levels.”

Launched by the MHRD in collaboration with the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, the objective of the ‘Swachh Bharat Summer Internship – 100 Hours of Swachhata’ is to engage the youth of the country for sanitation related work and village level development.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched Swachh Bharat campaign three years ago and now it has caught the imagination of the public and large numbers of people are participating in it,” Javadekar said in a video message.

Running from May 1 to July 31, 2018, the program is launched to develop the skill and orientation of the youth for sanitation related work. Another objective is to bring the youth of the country to make a significant contribution to the swachhta revolution and to integrate them in the community service in rural areas.

“Now it is the turn of the youth to participate in Swachh Bharat Summer Internship by visiting villages for 10 to 15 days during the summer vacation for making clean and dirt-free ambience,” he said.

The minister said that students enrolled in colleges and universities may apply in ‘Swachh Bharat Summer Internship’ through the enrolment form.

“Candidates may participate individually or in teams also. The location and team size may be decided in consultation with Nodal Officers,” he said.

After enrollment for the internship through the website, candidates will be accepted as valid once approved by the Nodal Officer at the parent institution.

“Candidates are to devote at least 100 hours conducting Swachhata-related activities in rural areas selected by them and approved by the parent institution. The last date of registration is May 15, 2018,” the minister added.
