Bangalore Cyclothon 2022
We organized this event with an objective of Raising funds for the Education of Underprivileged Kids, thus the theme is “Uniting Cyclists for a cause”. Proceeds for this event will go for upgrading the Jyothipura government school that we have adopted. The objective is to convert this school to a Model Government School, so that students from not so privileged backgrounds can have the best education.
Back to School kits
The pandemic has devastated the finances of many of the parents, and they really can’t afford to buy even the essential notebooks for educating their kids.
After discussions with the school teachers and the Village committee, the following is the list of items required for the students, for this academic year.
Kindly contribute and help the kids get quality education.
Eco Ganesha and Gauri Fundraiser
The Eco Ganesha idol is 10 inches in height, and the Eco Gauri idol is 4 inches in height. Both are made of Clay & soil mix, mixed with seeds. No chemicals are used in the making. Minimal eco-friendly painting is applied so that it easily disintegrates when soaked in water.

Canopy of Hope
Rotary Shantiniketan along with Rotaract 3190 has devised an initiative, “Canopy of Hope” aiming to provide a handy canopy which these parents could use to shelter their children at the construction site.

Eco Ganesha fundraiser
Every year, millions of Ganesha Idols made of POP used to be dumped into lakes, ponds and sea. This POP doesn’t break down easily, and it just pollutes the environment. Our ECO Ganesha is made of soil, clay and seeds. After Ganeshotsav, pouring water on the idol causes the seeds to germinate and beautiful flower plants to grow. This was our first project to raise funds for Education of children. Thanks to the residents of PSN, this was a super successful drive, and we sold off all our inventory much before Ganeshotsav.
