The Government Primary School in Chiplun recently received a helping hand from the members of Rotaract Club Chiplun, RID 3170. Recognising the lack of basic learning equipment among students, the club took action to provide essential supplies, such as notebooks and pencils, to support their educational journey.
After multiple meetings with the staff and students, the club’s president, Akash Redi, expressed concern over the students’ limited access to crucial educational resources to his club members. He highlighted their parents’ struggles in affording basic educational material. Shaken by the findings, the club sprang into action by providing school kits to 250 students.
One notable initiative carried out by the club was a marathon event that witnessed an impressive participation of 535 enthusiastic runners. The event aimed to promote health and wellness while raising awareness about the club’s activities.
The club took up a tree plantation drive which also created awareness on environment among the locals. Native tree saplings, including mango and coconut, were planted by the members. “This endeavour not only beautifies our surroundings but also emphasises the importance of sustainable practices and a greener future,” says the club president.
Qais Sayyad, the club’s secretary, says their community-based approach, “highlights how Rotaract simultaneously addresses the needs of underprivileged students and creates awareness about environmental issues. We are committed to building a better society by empowering students with educational resources and promoting sustainable practices.”
