A Cute Robot Will Soon Promote Hygienic Habits Amongst Kids In 19 Co-Ed Schools Of Delhi


With rising cases of illnesses and the looming fear of several diseases gripping the society, it has become important to adopt proper sanitation habits. And seems like the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has already started working towards this goal.

Adopting Hygienic Habits | The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has decided to install a robot in 19 co-ed schools in the city. A robot named Pepe, which was developed in Glasgow, will prompt students to adopt hygienic habits and wash hands regularly. The bot will interact with kids passing by the sink, encouraging them to wash their hands properly. This move is set to inspire around 20,000 children studying in the schools and thereby encourage them to wash their hands properly.

Each machine which will cost Rs 7,000, aims to targets school kids below 10 years of age from the marginalised section of the society and to promote hygiene practices amongst them! This move will not on;y contribute to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan but will also help in keeping diseases like COVID-19, far away.

Sounds like a step in the right direction, doesn’t it?!
