Cleanliness rally, skit and painting session ensure a fun Children's Day
Tata Power's nationwide energy conservation programme, Club Enerji, has been relentlessly spreading awareness to protect Mother Earth and preserve our natural resources. In honour of this commitment, the Mini Club of Little Flower School, Thane, in collaboration with Tata Power's Club Enerji, organised a Waste Management and cleanliness drive as a part of Children's Day celebrations.
The objective of this initiative was to communicate the significance of waste management to the students as well as to impart knowledge on resource conservation. Tata Power's expert team of educators sensitized the students about the repercussions of waste dumping on the environment and its impact on the ecosystem through various interesting audio- video presentations. Armed with banners and posters, more than 2171 students from the 5th to 10th standard participated in a cleanliness drive in the neighboring areas, and sensitised the residents about the benefits of recycling through a skit.
The highlight of the event was a wall painting session where the children drew beautiful sketches of their view of a green and clean earth, followed by a signature campaign where the participating students signed their names.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, stated, "Tata Power understands that children at a young age need to be taught about resource conservation for a greener tomorrow. Through Club Enerji, Tata Power aims to provide a platform to students to share and expand their understanding and knowledge on the wasteful usage of energy and natural resources. We are extremely pleased with the enthusiasm displayed by the children as well as their creativity in communicating their message. We applaud their zeal, and would like to extend our hearty appreciation to the school for their unwavered commitment towards this initiative."
In its 7th year of success, Tata Power Club Enerji has recently launched the Waste Management Module as a part of its Resource Conservation Programme and has received enthusiastic response from all its members. The Club Enerji movement has successfully achieved a significant milestone of saving 11.2 million units of electricity by sensitising more than 7 million people across 11 locations including Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune, Bangalore, Lonavala, Maithon, Belgaum, Jamshedpur and Ranchi since its inception. The units saved by the Club are equivalent to the amount of energy used to light up 5,266 houses for one year and save 11,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
