February 15, 2017 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) February 15, 2017 - On an inspiring note, Rotaract District 3141 ends its week long celebration of spreading the word of Being Responsible. Rotaract Mumbai, in its 49th year, aimed at holistic development initiatives to flourish in reaching to masses and helping spread the social causes of Literacy, Child Development, Women Empowerment, The Joy of Giving and also empowerment of the Specially Abled as a part of this Youth Week.
The Campaign involved a series of engagement activations all across the city in terms of Flash Mobs and Skits, each touching the 5 Thrust Areas and helping spread the word of Being Responsible. Rotaract has also picked the cause of having INDIA's Biggest Shoe Donation Drive where anyone can buy a pair of Shoes from us and our Team shall donate one for every purchase made.
As a part of the Initiative, the Youth groups trooped up for daily sessions at various Municipal Schools teaching the students about the need for cleanliness and empowering them about how one needs to stand against 'what is wrong'. At the end of the Week, over 4000 Lives were touched amongst the school going children. The World Responsible Youth Week, in its 9th Year, aims at reaching to all the Age groups of people and hence have also decided to create Libraries and fund the Adult Literacy Programme adopted, with all the Cash proceeds that flow in as contribution towards the Cause.
The message of Responsible Youth was put forward by a Mega Station Cleaning Drive as well, across multiple stations carried out on a Sunday Morning. Moreover, an entire day was dedicated to encourage Skill and Talent across the Underprivileged in the form of Public Speaking, Dance, Grammar etc. where the Team touched over 700 lives and helped make a difference.
The Week also witnessed a Mega Quiz of the Under Privileged kids happening on the 18th January 2017 at the Gopal Sharma Memorial School, Powai.
Rotaract Representative, Rtr. Rohan Dalmia says, "A sense of social responsibility is diminishing these days among the Youth and it is high time that we STOP BLAMING and START ACTING. World Responsible Youth Week 2017 was our Initiative to strengthen the Social Systems, thereby influencing the Youth, which highly influences the future of India. We shall keep doing activities like these to boost the Change in the Society and make a more Responsible World to live in."
A special 2 Wheeler Rally was organised on the 29thJanuary 2017 from Kalanagar, Bandra Kurla Complex to Sathaye College, Vile Parle (E) from 10AM in association with Rotary in order to spread the need of Responsible and Safe Riding
Thereby, our District Chairman Public Relations, Rtr.
