This New Year is different for a few of the city youth. They have joined hands and pledged to make the world a better place to live in. They have come together to enlighten the lamp of literacy; stand up for the cause of education and work towards realising the dreams of underprivileged and needy.
District Rotaract representative Harikrishnan Pillai said, “The young and vibrant members of Rotaract and Tata Photon+ are celebrating World Responsible Youth Week between January 2 and 9 with focus on ‘education’ this year. World Responsible Youth Week is an extension of World Responsible Youth Day celebrated to mark the responsibility that youth of the world must imbibe.”
The day is celebrated on the first Sunday of every year. Various Rotaract Clubs across the city conducted various activities supporting the cause to celebrate this week. Iconic Hindi Rock band Euphoria gave their support for the cause and dedicated one of their popular and inspirational songs, ‘Rok Sako To Rok Lo’, for this initiative.
They took off with a city-wide rally on January 2. Mega rallies and road shows were organised across the city, covering Mumbai suburbs and Thane. It was a massive awareness campaign supported by eminent personalities in the field of education and various celebrities.
The rally had various performances, street plays on many prominent spots in Vashi and targeted to get a sponsorship of educating at least 10000 underprivileged kids. This was followed by setting up touch points for donation and for volunteers in malls and schools.
