Rashtriya Garima Abhiyaan is a national campaign launched by the Government of India with the objective of eradicating the practice of manual scavenging and rehabilitating manual scavengers. Manual scavenging refers to the manual cleaning of human excreta from dry latrines, open drains, and sewers. It is a degrading and inhumane practice that violates the rights and dignity of individuals involved in it. The campaign aims to raise awareness, provide support, and implement measures to eliminate manual scavenging and uplift the living conditions of manual scavengers by providing them with alternative livelihood opportunities and rehabilitation.
