Ahmedabad Round Table 40 has completed 39 years this June’15 and is all pumped up to enter in its 40th year. Members of Ahmedabad Round 40 decided to celebrate its landmark year as we shall celebrate “Ruby Year” for the table. We decided to launch a new table pin- “Incredible 40 years of ART 40”.
“KSHEERA BHAGYA”, is an innovative and prestigious program of distributing milk to school and Anganwadi children by the Government of Karnataka. Under this scheme 150 ml of Milk is provided to each school going child in Karnataka. As of today this scheme benefits more than 1 Crore Children in Karnataka and provides much needed nutrition for their growth, free of cost.
The milk is supplied to the school in the form of Milk Powder and is further converted into Milk and served to the Children by the school authorities. The storage of such milk after conversion is a big problem to the authorities. Many incidents have come to light wherein the children have fallen sick due to contamination of such milk during storage for serving.
Belgaum Royals RT 205 was approached by the Government Kannada Primary School No. 14, Vadagoan, Belgaum for donation of containers to store the milk before serving. Hitherto they were storing the milk in open vessels. This carried a risk of contamination. The school serves the Government provided milk to more than 600 students. Assessing the risk to the children we decided to provide the School with 3 stainless steel containers of 50 Liters each. This will help the School to provide the children with contamination free milk.
Tablers and Ladies of Belgaum Royals RT 205 were present in good numbers during the donation program and also took part in serving of milk to the children.
A few photographs of the occasion are attached.
Hope you enjoy the same!
