Agua Bahini - Social Movement for TSC

The campaign had its origin in Rewa District of M.P. State. To make TSC a social movement, for the first time the village women were brought on forefronts. These women were trained and motivated to propagate sanitation and hygiene practices in rural areas. Ladies were iconed as Agua Bahinis, (literally meaning Leader Sisters). With the efforts of these leaders, 8 villages of Rewa districts got Nirmal Gram Award by Govt. of India. The movement is still in progress and thousands of women are working to promote sanitation in different villages of the region.

Soap Bank

Soap Bank is a new innovation by Vibhavari to ensure availability of soap in schools for hand wash. Child Cabinet has passed a resolution that every student will donate a soap to school on his/her birthday. This evokes a proud feeling of contributing something and in turn receiving genuine wishes by other students. The Soap Bank is a very successful and sustainable modal and is spreading on its own.

Pad bank

Jagmag Sena

In the year 2008, an innovative modal for WASH had evolved as Jagmag Sena. Jagmag sena is a group of volunteer students who took responsibility to conduct WASH activities in their respective schools upon themselves. This further led to formation of Child Cabinet.

Jagmag Newsletter

Jagmag Newsletter was published for giving a platform to voice of children to know their views on child rights and WASH issues. This has provided a forum to children where they can share their experiences and new ideas on WASH and this sharing is intended to provide learnings to sanitation planners and workers.

About 15 editions of Jagmag have been prepared by students in middle schools of Guna and Dewas districts and published with the support of UNICEF & ITC.

Jaibee Thaila Campaign

Vibhavari made its contribution towards spreading awareness against pollution of environment. Polythene, the biggest hazard for a clean and healthy environment, is omnipresent and it is not bio-degradable. A substitute for cheap polythene bags, Jaibee Thaila was designed and promoted in districts of Khandwa & Dewas, M.P., by the organization. Nearly 10,000 Jaibee Thailas were distributed in the area for bringing behavioral change in the community.
