Parvaah is the social initiative of K.J Somaiya College Of Engineering which deals with all the social causes of the society and helps the underprivileged section of the society. As we enter the second year of Parvaah’s three-year motive- Zero waste community, we plan to organise a number of events which aim to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste generated in the society.

BEACH CLEAN-UP

The festive season of Ganesh Chaturthi is one which is celebrated with great pride and enthusiasm all across the state. But what follows at the end of 11 days is a beach replete of floral waste and half-broken idols. To overcome this, Parvaah has decided to organize a beach clean-up at the Girgaum Chowpatty on the day after Ganesh Visarjan to clear up the beach of all its waste. We plan on associating with other college students from that area and make this a ground-breaking youth moment. Similarly, we would also be spreading awareness about celebrating an eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav in the weeks leading to the festival.

Donation Drive

Power of One is a global humanitarian campaign of Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care, organised for the under-privileged. At Parvaah, we organised this campaign for three days where all the students, and staff contributed used items which would benefit the under- privileged.

tree plantation drive

With thousands of trees being cut on a daily basis, it has become necessary to plant as many trees as possible in order to maintain the environmental cycles on Earth. Keeping in mind our goal, we at Parvaah conducted a tree plantation drive at Ambivli. The students planted over 50 saplings and learnt the significance of trees in the ecosystem.

signal shala

Signal Shala is an innovative concept initialized by Samarth Bharat Vyaspith along with Thane Municipal Corporation, to provide education to underprivileged children living on signals in Thane. Situated in a small container below a bridge, the main aim of Signal Shala is to make these kids capable of adjusting themselves with the mainstream world. We at Parvaah plan on spreading awareness about Zero Waste with the help of these kids and also teach them simple ways to treat their waste. As signals witness a frequent number of vehicles, we aim to use this medium to make the people aware of the basic habits they can follow to effectively manage their waste. We at Parvaah believe that only when it is a collective effort of all its citizens can a city truly make great progress in achieving a goal.

secret santa

On the occasion of Christmas, Parvaah plans on visiting an orphanage and celebrate with the kids. To further the joy, we would also be distributing toys, goodies, and sweets among the kids. This would be followed by playing games with the children, interacting with them and ensuring that everyone has a smile on his or her face.

eco run

We at Parvaah organised the ‘Parvaah ecoRun’ to advocate the importance of walking to reduce the global carbon footprint. With around 300 registrations and a few prominent personalities being a part of the ecoRun, Parvaah reached a step closer towards its goal of building a Zero-Waste Community.
