The campaign is meant to generate demand for improved water supply in unreached habitations and gradually provide access to piped water supply for all by 2020. The week-long campaign will be observed from 20 to25 February across all the districts, blocks and gram panchayats.

Various entertainment activities like street play, magic show, puppet show, motivational songs, skits performances by local artists etc will be orgainsed during Gram Mela in each block to educated people.

Inadequate access to safe water and sanitation services, coupled with poor hygiene practices, kills and sickens thousands of children every day, and leads to impoverishment and diminished opportunities for thousands more.
