Shramadhana Campaign
 
The Dengue Eradication Shramadhana Campaign lead by the Green Team is an annual project done by RACUOCFMF, where the members of the club join hand in hand to ensure a dengue threat-free surrounding. The main purpose of this Shramadhana campaign is to identify and prevent all the potential dengue breeding sites at the faculty premises. Through this project we ensured that the surrounding was free of the less focused water stagnating places such as, roof gutters, yogurt cups, tins, shells and etc., swept of the dried leaves on roofs & drains and did alterations to avoid water stagnating spots identified.
