Dec 14, 2016

Through the Swachh Bharat Mission’ (SBM) initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, one of his aims was to provide every Indian the access to toilets by Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birthday on 2nd  October 2019.

‘Team Swachh Bharat’ is an initiative, co-developed by WASH United and UNICEF, to implement exactly this goal.  Viega is the first company to join the distribution of Team Swachh Bharat’s Action Kits to 3,500 schools, thereby reaching up to 7,00,000 children across India. This kit combines play-based learning with rule-based habit formation and engages children through daily and weekly activities throughout the academic year, thus improving “the standards of hygiene in the country in a sustainable manner”, comments Anna Viegener, Member of the Management Board and Shareholder of Viega.

Thorsten Kiefer, founder and CEO of WASH United, acknowledges this Viega’s commitment to invest in “production facilities for sanitation products in India” and “improve the living conditions of the people”.
