We believe there has never been a better time to create a better future for our children; a world where everyone has enough food to eat and no child goes to bed hungry.
Where every child lives to their fifth birthday and has the right to a happy childhood.
Where every home has enough water to drink and to wash, cook and clean.
And where everybody can enjoy life today while protecting the planet for future generations.
Hindustan Unilever Limited brightFuture is a platform that helps unite and amplify the efforts of a growing community of people who believe it is possible to build a world where everyone lives well and lives sustainably.
Who recognise we can only achieve this if we all work together to do small actions every day that make a real difference.
And who inspire others to join us in making this the way everyone chooses to live.

and see how kids are spreading the message of Swachh Aadat for Swachh Bharat through #HaathMunhBum
Haath, Munh Aur Bum is a well-timed shout-out to amplify the truth about unhygienic habits that are prevalent in society. Turns out if left to the kids, hygiene advice can turn out to be way more fun! Through this new “Haath, Munh Aur Bum” campaign, children turn into agents of change and propagate the adoption of three Swachh Aadats. The adoption of the three Swachh Aadats will go a long way in accomplishing the end goal of Swachh Bharat – a clean and illness free nation. Unless we change and adopt Swachh Aadats, Swachh Bharat will not be a reality. Haath, Munh Aur Bum tells you how to do it. #SwachhAadatSwachhBharat.

How sure are you that the water in your glass is clean and safe? Is it fine to believe what you see? Rising levels of water pollution means water is one of the most deceptive germ carriers to the naked eye. Adopting good water habits is key to keeping you and your family safe from disease.
A generation of parenting has taught us one important lesson about children – they have an uncanny need to go to the toilet at what would seem the most inconvenient times and situations. The least we can do, is to inspire them to use a clean one.
Almost 600 million people in India defecate outdoors in the open every single day. Why does this matter? With the germs from these open sources finding their way into food, this is leading to an unhealthy India. The solution is simple, open defecation must end for India to get well.
Hands are the primary carriers of germs and diseases, but often the ones you forget to clean. Fortunately, the solution for this seemingly complex problem is exceedingly simple. A bar of soap and water. That’s all it takes!
Contaminated water is an issue that affects just under 100 million homes in India and leaves children vulnerable to illness, and even death. Unilever brand Pureit is working as part of a global drive to claim clean drinking water for India.
6 million. That is the number of children around the world who die of diarrhoea before they even see their fifth birthday. In a country like ours where washing hands is considered a chore unless they are visibly dirty, the repercussions are startling. Fortunately, the solution is very simple.
