Trees represent life, growth, peace and nature. They produce oxygen, clean soil, prevent drought, control flood related disasters, prevent soil erosion, improve physiological, mental and spiritual health, and also reduce carbon footprints. Keeping this in mind the campaign for the tree plantation was held in a village. Tree programme was initiated by the Swayam Siddhi College of Management and Research on 28th July 2022 in Lakhivali village, Bhiwandi.
The following activities have been undertaken so far to promote this campaign: -

We had an opportunity to do things differently on Saturday, 8 Oct. 2022, when the CSR team and students visited ‘Orphanage to spend time with them. It was a wonderful experience to be with them. In spite of fighting with the odds their heartwarming welcome made our hearts skip a beat. This visit was an unforgettable one for our students. This noble cause of spreading smiles and happiness among these less privileged children, gave immense peace and happiness to our team of students.
The cultural program conducted us for them and various games played with them to make the environment lively and lighter touched the children of the orphanage. The students interacted with the kids in the orphanage which made them feel wanted in the society. They spent some quality time with the children in the orphanage and it was the most worthwhile time ever spent.
A visit to an Orphanage is a life-changing experience as it is filled with emotions and sentiments. We were lucky to get an opportunity to visit an Orphanage named Mahatma Jyotiba phule adivasi seva mandal sanchalit anudanit ashram kharbao. There were around 500 children with few caretakers and a few in charge.
We travelled there on a large bus from our college and reached there at 11:25 a.m.
We have many children to look forward to. The orphans were waiting for us in a queue along the hallway. When they spotted us, they seemed very joyful. They gave us a really heartfelt and poignant welcome. We were all taken aback by their reaction. There are dwellings in a single row. The house's walls were old and the paint had faded. The house appeared to have gone for years without any repair. The common hall was present. There were small red and yellow color lockers as well as beds piled high. There were not many bunk beds.
When we entered, the majority of the children were focusing on us. There are few children’s chatting with one another. Children in the group ranged in age from 5 to 15 years old. The majority of the kids were staring at us when we walked in. We take a few pictures of them. Food, Cold drinks, chocolates, and other items were in our luggage. We fed them and had a meal with them. We divided into groups and proceeded to speak to each person alone. While many of us initially began playing indoor games with the kids, others opted to play outside games. Elder children were informing us about the rules and regulation that everyone in the shelter is supposed to follow. As if no one can leave the Shelter without permission, no one can click a close-up pic of the children, etc.
Following that, we organized some activities for them that included creativity, team formation, and singing a song with them. A few children joined us and we all sang a song together. It was quite enjoyable, especially near the end. Then, in the courtyard of the house, we engaged in activities with the nearby young children, such as cricket, football, volleyball, and badminton, among others.
Following that, we organized a programmed with the children and their caregivers to raise awareness about sanitary pads, career advancement, and other topics. After that, we played some music and danced with them; they were all having fun and participating in our activities. We had a very enjoyable experience thanks to them.
After all, of this, whatever we brought them is now theirs. We received feedback from them after all of the activities were completed, and they stated that no college or school had ever personally visited them. It was also a pleasurable experience for them. Shubham Gudka, an FYMMS student, then delivered a vote of thanks, bringing the session to a close. In addition, our professors share their thoughts and motivate the students.Then, at 3:30 p.m., we left their premises. The kids were simply adorable. We had a fantastic day, and the kids had a fantastic time as well. They came to us empathetic, compassionate for the underprivileged, and needy, and they resolved that when they grow up, they, too, would contribute to such worthy causes.
