Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide energy conservation movement, has been constantly working towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens across the country. In line with this commitment, and on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, Tata Power’s Club Enerji students from St. Xaviers High School, St Mary’s High School, and Cosmopolitan High School participated in a cleanliness drive organized by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation under the 'Swachh Bharat Swasth Bharat Abhiyaan Programme’ to create social awareness around the necessity and importance of cleanliness in maintaining good health.
The main objective of this programme was to create awareness among the students and people regarding cleanliness and its benefits. This unique drive garnered participation from 10,000 students from standards 8th to 12th from twenty-two schools across Mumbai. As a part of the Cleanliness Drive, the students along with their teachers and management undertook a rally that encouraged people to take a pledge to keep the city clean and green in order to ensure a healthy and green Mumbai. Through this well planned and executed rally, the students successfully educated 50,000 people.
Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Tata Power, said, "Tata Power’s Club Enerji is not just a project or a cause, but a movement that will help us shape the minds of our younger generations to be sustainable individuals and enable them to make wise decisions. On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, we have strived to honour the Mahatma by inculcating his teachings and values on the importance of cleanliness through the students of Club Enerji. We have been successful in reaching out to numerous schools across cities, and such rallies are a step forward in making the Government of India’s initiative on Swachh Bharat Swasth Bharat a true success. I take this opportunity to thank the students and management of all the participating schools for making this initiative a grand success."
In addition to message on the importance of cleanliness, the students also created slogans for saving natural resources and environment protection. To prepare for the massive rally, the students enthusiastically created banners, placards, and posters on themes of cleanliness and maintaining good personal hygiene.
