KET and Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth join hands for building a better India

As a part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav Celebrations, KET organised many activities on and off campus. With a firm belief in giving back to the society, a few members from KET visited Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth, Thane, to explore possibilities of collaboration for varied initiatives that could help us create a better India. Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth is a Thane based institution that runs varied projects like Project Revitalisation, Signal Shala and a Scrap Library – for toys, books and all other scrapped items, under the dynamic leadership and guidance of Shri Bhatu Sawant.

Apart from visiting the facilities for plastic recycling, dry waste brick making, the scrap library and the fertiliser making plant, the KET staff and faculty also discussed different ways in which they could contribute their intellectual support, to varied initiatives started by Shri Bhatu Sawant. The team from KET agreed to help Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth in improving their recycle earth web portal. Moreover, they also accepted that they would collaborate with SBV, to both create a portal and upscale it, in order to help them sell scrap. Furthermore, in the context of the book library, the members from KET said that they could contribute their support towards organising the library better. More importantly, since language development is a very vital part of one’s ability to communicate, the members of KET assured SBV that they could share worksheets with the teachers of the Signal Shala, aimed at developing their students’ English Language Skills. Dr Preeti Shirodkar also committed to writing the history of the NGO as a base document that would help them gain visibility.

The visit to Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth was in alignment with the theme – Naye Bharat ki Buland Tasveer, that KET had decided for the 75th Independence Day Celebrations. Kudos to Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth and Team KET, for their joint efforts in marching ahead towards a stronger and better India!
