Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide energy and resources conservation movement, has been constantly working with children towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens by saving electricity, natural resources, and promoting better societal habits across the country. In line with this commitment, Tata Power's Club Enerji students from Pawar Public School Bhandup and Pawar Public School, Chandivali accompanied by their teachers undertook a major awareness rally in Bhandup, on the occasion of Children's day to highlight how everyone can play a role in conserving our rivers.
More importantly, the students served as true ambassadors of change on the occasion of Children's Day. More than 250 students along with their teachers participated in this rally.
The objective of the rally was to sensitise larger audience on saving our rivers and water bodies. In addition, the students also shouted slogans to stop water pollution. To prepare for the massive rally, the students enthusiastically created banners, placards, and posters on river conservation. A street play was performed as part of the celebration, wherein the students reiterated the importance of conserving saving our rivers and stopping water pollution.
Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Tata Power, said, "We are happy that Tata Power's Club Enerji has grown from a club to become a national movement over the past ten years. It is very encouraging to see so many students participate whole heartedly in conserving and protecting our environment through Club Enerji. Today's children are the future of the world and their contribution in protecting the environment is priceless. I take this opportunity to thank the students and management of Pawar Public School for making this initiative a grand success and wish every child a very happy children's day."
