Enriching Fortnight….

Wow…A fortnight full of activities covering the whole spectrum.
First of all, this fortnight, we were blessed to have our mentors Pareshbhai and Ratnabhabhi from Manav Sadhna – US. They visited our upcoming community centre of Sabarmati, Motera and discussed the future prospects with Viren bhai and team.
On awareness front, at one end we had an interactive session on Solid Waste Management & the role of a responsible citizen at St. Kabir School. Thanks to Matthews for sharing his learning with the students as well. While on the other, we also did a recyclables collection drive with Riverside.
On engagement front, we are thrilled to initiate a pilot with Reserve Bank of India, wherein idea is to up-cycle the discarded currency notes to some useful products. We have already produced papers from it and now we will work on different possibility on product design. We also got an opportunity to partner with TCS Corporate Run event as a charity accepting shoes which will later be distributed to our community members. It was definitely an enriching experience for the team.
Highlight of the fortnight was definitely the Spa sessions anchored by Annaben with her gorgeous and soulful team of volunteers. The purity & calmness with which they carried out each steps was immensely powerful for the sisters and equally touching for the team members witnessing it. Each and every sisters were simply moved and filled with immense gratitude for the volunteers.
All in all, it was a fortnight definitely worth cherish for.
