Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide movement, is changing the way the country is using its energy and natural resources, one city at a time. In this attempt, Tata Power's Club Enerji, organised a mega awareness rally, in Ahmedabad, on the occasion of Children's Day. Over 100 enthusiastic students along with parents and teachers from St. Kabir School in Naranpura took to the streets to spread awareness among the citizens of Ahmedabad on issues plaguing the city like spitting, food wastage, and energy conservation. More than 2000 people were sensitized in the rally .
Through the various rallies and initiatives of Club Enerji in 2016-17, students from Ahmedabad sensitised around 1,54,911 citizens in the city through a primary contact programme as well as secondary sensitisation, and saved 4,01,835 units of energy in the city.
The objective of the rally on Children's day was to sensitise larger audience in Ahmedabad about the need for personal hygiene, community living, and energy conservation. The students and teachers under the able mentorship of Ms. Neetu Thakkar, an energy mentor of Tata Power Club Enerji hosted a street play at Havmor Corner, opposite Vastrapur Lake, attracting a healthy audience. The play was on the importance of maintaining a hygienic and clean surrounding by avoiding spitting, and stopping wastage of food. The skit ended with a song on energy conservation that defines every aspect of daily living.
