It aimed at increasing public awareness and an understanding on Clean Water and Water Conservation in villages. Two locations were targeted – ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh Inter college, Surajpur’ and ‘Village Tilapta’, where volunteers held sessions for students and villagers to increase awareness on clean water, water borne diseases & water conservation. A quiz was also conducted and winners were felicitated.
Promoting Higher Education
With a view to promote higher education and to prevent the children from being drop out from the schools, MBT has initiated a career development center. MBT could have not sustained this initiative considering the large number of outreach & limited size of the team. The employees came forward and conducted classes with the children facing difficulties in their subjects. They were not confined to only class room teachings rather were also engaged in promoting digital literacy in their own unique ways.
Addition to this, employees’ families also shown up the zeal of contributing towards the society. One of the employees’ wife took up the precious task of educating basic English to Taleem girls.
