Visit to Wildlife SOS

Visit to Wildlife SOSIn our country, the population of all kinds of animals are gradually reducing to the environmental conditions and few of the species are already extinct. So, an account of this NSS RVCE organized the event called “People for Animals”.

Under this event we selected the Bannerghata National park as a nearest place for wild animals and volunteers were there with the allowable team of 10 members for one day. The volunteers there constructed sleeping beds with play drum specially for bears. They also undertook cleaning of dens, stone sorting and many more to help the animals as on the day.

Visit to Ashraya Trust

We, NSS Volunteers reached the trust at 10:30 am and were cordially welcomed by Mrs. Rani, founder of trust.We started in groups to visit each bed as there was less space. Later NSS volunteers planned to provide some entertainment. It began with Antakshrai between two random group of volunteers.  To our surprise some Mothers joined the volunteers.

The volunteers realized that today, we spend more time in our workplaces than with our families. We want money desperately but we don’t remember because of whom we are earning it.

Finally, all the volunteers joined hands in collecting some amount for Ashraya. It was wonderful visit, celebrating Sankranti with them. It would not have been much better than this.

GANDHI JAYANTHI CELEBRATIONS 2015

In India three most important events are celebrated with full respect & dedication. Namely, Independence Day, Republic day & Gandhi Jayanthi.

Gandhi Jayanthi is a national festival celebrated in India to mark the occasion of the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi “The father of the nation”. Mahatma Gandhi always insisted on truth and nonviolence as the inseparable part of humanism. He gave the world the invincible weapons of truth, nonviolence and compassion.

NSS organised an event to celebrate Gandhi Jayanthi on 2nd October, 2015 with the theme “My life is My Message”.

TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITY

To unite all the NSS volunteers together and enhance leadership and confidence in a individual person, NSS core team planned for a team building activity. So we searched for an appropriate place. We thought to select lalbagh botanical garden since it was at the centre of the city and everyone can easily reach the place at ease. Meeting was held to inform about the event to all volunteers.

Venue: Lalbagh botanical garden, Bengaluru

NSS DAY CELEBRATION AND PAPER BAG EVENT

24th September is a special day for any NSS volunteer, because it’s the NSS day. So, to celebrate NSS day was the idea but to make it meaningful was the intention. So, the idea of “Paper bag event” took its shape. Nowadays, plastic, especially in the form of plastic bags is causing a lot of harm to the environment. Plastic doesn’t get degraded in the environment easily and remains in the soil for a long time.

In order to raise awareness about the ill- effects of plastic to the environment, the NSS volunteers decided to organize a paper- bag making event. Around 500 paper bags were made by the students of RVCE during the course of the event. Also, everyone pledged to reduce the use of plastic bags and as an alternative use paper bags which are biodegradable.

Attendees: NSS officers and 87 NSS volunteers
