Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami launched the School Hygiene Education Programme for the state on August 16 with the goal of raising cleanliness awareness among children.

The programme will be implemented in 13,000 primary schools across Uttarakhand's 13 districts. The Uttrakhand education department has signed an MoU with Reckitt for the programme.

Chief Minister Dhami, who launched the programme, stated that it will change children's daily attitudes toward cleanliness. He stated that it is critical to raise awareness among children about the importance of cleanliness in their personal lives, schools, homes, and surrounding areas.

He said that from birth to the age of six years, the mental and physical development of children is the fastest. "Children move forward following the discipline they get in the early stages of life. The coming 25 years will be the nectar of the country, these children of today will be the captains of the country after 25 years. It is important to give them the right direction," Dhami said.

First state to implement the National Education Policy-2020

Uttarakhand, according to the Chief Minister, is the first state in the country to implement the National Education Policy-2020. Bal Vatikas have been established in the state's 4,457 co-located Anganwadi centres to support the implementation of the National Education Policy. New programmes such as 'Praveshotsav,' 'Aarohi,' 'Kaushalam,' 'Anandam,' and 'Vidya Setu' are being offered.

Dhami stated that virtual classrooms have been established in central studios and 500 schools across the state to promote online education. Subjects such as Vedic science, Vedic mathematics, and management introduction to Bhagavad Gita have been implemented as co-curricular in higher education with the goal of familiarising students with Indian culture and the Indian knowledge system.

The Chief Minister said the startup policy has been implemented with the objective of promoting research and startups in higher educational institutions.
