Every single step with the right motive in the right direction leads to big differences. With this vision in our eyes and the earnest desires to address the issues gripping our society from time and burgeoning day by day, we wanted to get the answers to the endless debates our own way! What role do we play in making world a better place to live in? How do we bring more equality and justice to those less fortunate than us? How do we obtain the support of our counterparts to deliver their best in all they do with an urge to serve others alive in their hearts?
We believe nation building is a collective process, and not an individual one.. In the neighbourhood project, through our small endeavours we search for the answers to these questions. We feel it is our social responsibility to value the lives of others, and bring about a necessary change by dedicating a small portion of our lives to them.
We hold workshops for slum children, we organise collection drives, we spread awareness about the problems of the society, we interact with poor and try to provide technical solutions to them. With this and more, search for the answers is still on, and will go on! These activities leave us socially more sensitive and sound! Bit by bit, 'The Neighbourhood Project' has touched upon many lives in the past and will continue to do so in the near future!
