Over six months, the program involved 161 schools, 14,700 children and 36 villages from the entire Kanakapura Taluk on cleanliness, sports, cultural activities and improving overall education standards. With 25 model schools announced as winners of this competition, this is now being replicated across the state by the government of Karnataka.
