Recently, families, tourists and even members of the police force participated in a signing campaign to mark their appreciation for the cleaners of Malaysia. The signing campaign, which was conducted as part of the #RespectCleaners initiative, received more than a thousand signatures.

The first campaign of its kind in Malaysia, the #RespectCleaners campaign is a movement to destigmatise the cleaning profession as well as to recognise and appreciate the contribution of the cleaners of Malaysia.

Mohan Ramachandran, the Project Director who founded the #RespectCleaners campaign said, “More often than not, the contributions of cleaners in Malaysia are often overlooked and underappreciated by society. We tend to take the clean environment for granted while day in and day out, these people work timelessly behind the scene to keep our surrounding clean and comfortable”.

Being the owner of a cleaning company himself, Mohan organised the campaign to showcase and highlight the countless hours, sheer diligence and unwavering commitment that cleaners put into keeping our homes, work and community clean. 80% of his employees are locals.

Elaborating on the purpose of the campaign, Mohan added, “I see these people as the unsung heroes. It is the cleaners who work behind the scenes, even in the dirtiest of places, to ensure that our daily routines go on comfortably. Often, people tend to stigmatise the cleaning profession as a dirty, dangerous and difficult job.”

“It is hoped that through this campaign, we can encourage Malaysians to be more considerate towards the cleaners in Malaysia. We want to showcase to Malaysians that the cleaners are human beings too, who are making an honest living doing the jobs many of us would not even think of doing.” he added.

As part of the campaign, stories of cleaners will be documented to showcase their tales of trials, tribulations and triumphs on social media. The campaign will culminate in a celebration to be held in conjunction with ‘International Cleaners Day’, a globally recognised celebration each year to show appreciation to members in the cleaning industry. Countries that participate in the celebration include Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

“Through the campaign, we hope to change the way Malaysians view and treat cleaners. There is no better time than now to create a culture of kindness and mindfulness towards the people who keep our environment clean and comfortable for us to work, play and live comfortably,” Mohan concluded.

  2. I think they should be treated in very respectful manner. Sometimes they looks a bit dirty because they want us to look clean. Can you imagine a world nowadays without a cleaner at majlis perbandaran, public areas, offices and etc? Respect them as you respect yourself.

  5. Setuju...kempen sebegini wajar diterapkan bermula dari sekolah lagi...dari peringkat kanak kanak...sangat besar tanggungjawab mereka dalam menjaga kebersihan ditempat yang kita sendiri tidak sanggup hadap..hormati dan hargailah setiap hasil kerja mereka..hormati kakak atau makcik juga pakcik yang sentiasa menjaga kebersihan.
