IBA Karachi Takes up Dettol Hoga Saaf Pakistan’s Cleanathon Challenge

To promote and instill the message of cleanliness and hygiene among people and particularly the youth of the country, Dettol HogaSaaf Pakistan has launched a cleanathon challenge for universities across Pakistan. The Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Karachi is the first institute to take up this challenge where students cleaned up a neighborhood at Karachi’s Shah Faisal Colony.

The aim of this cleanathon challenge is to take responsibility for the waste that we produce lining our streets across the country. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Pakistan generates around 20 million tons of solid waste annually growing by 2.4 percent. These dumps of garbage accompanied by our unhygienic behaviours are the leading cause of diseases such as diarrhea that takes the lives of 39000 children in the country.

Talking about this initiative, Kashan Hasan, CEO Reckitt Benckiser Pakistan Limited (RBPL), makers of Dettol, said, “Dettol has been the pioneer in driving cleanliness and hygiene under its flagship program, HogaSaaf Pakistan. We firmly believe in the power of our youth and their significant role in the country’s transformation and progress. This Cleanathon Challenge is to drive the change that will impact our actions and behaviors for a cleaner and healthier future of Pakistan. We hope that Pakistanis be inspired by these young generations’ efforts today in improving their surroundings.”

More than 60kgs of litter was collected by the students. IBA has now challenged other institutes to follow suit and take up the HogaSaaf Pakistan cleanathon challenge.
