Pinkathon @ Kolkata on 26th March ’17 by Calcutta South RT 17 / Register NOW!

Pinkathon is more than a Marathon. It is the seed of change. It is the beginning of a movement carried forward by a growing community of empowered women across India, who share a belief that a healthy family, a healthy nation and a healthy world begins with empowered women.

The first step in empowerment is taking control of your own health, respecting yourself and understanding and celebrating the value you bring to your family and society. Empowerment is not a gift of society; it is a gift you give yourself.

The Pinkathon is India’s Biggest Women’s Run, founded by Mr. Milind Soman and Ms. Reema Sanghavi, organised by the United Sisters Foundation and created with the specific purpose of getting more and more women to adopt a fitter lifestyle for themselves and their families, and to highlight the need for increased awareness other issues that put women’s lives at risk

Digest: Projects by Cochin Backwaters RT 131

Project : St.Mary’s School, Narakkal

A new initiative for CBRT 131 took us to St.Mary’s School, Narakkal. As part of an FTE assist program, we custom made furniture for 2 smart classrooms that they were in need of. Apart from furniture, which benefited 48 students, the flooring (tiles matte finish), lights and electrical work were all undertaken by CBRT 131.

MLA Mr. Sharma was kind enough to inaugurate the Smart Classrooms on January 17th, 2017. The children have started using the new facility and are no doubt enjoying the experience.

Girideepthi Tribal Hostel, Perumbavoor

As part of RTI Week, CBRT131  visited the Girideepthi Tribal Hostel in Perumbavoor. Tablers, ladies and twinklers were in good numbers and shared in the joy.

We donated 200 kgs of rice, cassaroles, a dinner set and kitchen utensils to the hostel kitchen. This was much appreciated. Apart from this, a DVD player, executive chairs and 70 notebooks were presented to the children too. A dental camp along with distribution of dental kits followed.

A year on year CBRT 131 Go Green initiative at the hostel, continued even this year. A total of 15 fruit trees were planted in the campus. Trees planted included Blueberry, Pomegranate, Gooseberry, Guava, Mango and Tamarind.

In keeping with the upcoming holiday season, CBRT 131 also donated a Christmas tree so the kids could have fun decorating it during the Christmas season.

Santhawanam Orphanage, Kalamassery

Santhawanam Orphange is one place that is dear to the hearts of many tablers of CBRT 131. We make it a point to visit every RTI week and also at least one time during the remainder of the tabling year. This RTI Week saw tablers, ladies and twinklers serve all the residents of the orphanage a yummy breakfast of Appam and Chicken stew. Everyone from CBRT 131 joined in as well.

CBRT 131 presented the orphanage with a brand new Sony Sound System, a DVD Player, a water purifier, a grinder, 12 beds and pillows. The kids were also given dental kits which included tooth brushes and paste. Sports Equipment which included shuttle rackets, footballs etc. were also given to the kids.

The children of the orphanage also performed some dances that were prepared especially for us. It was very special.

Once the festivities for the day were done, the children got a special treat and a movie was screened on a projector making it the perfect end to a wonderful day!

Raksha Special School

Taare Zameen Par, an RTI National Initiative, is one RTI Week event that we do year on year. A colouring and drawing contest for special children is organized at Raksha Special school. Over 70 children participated and they were all very enthusiastic about it too. The smiles on their faces said it all.

Tablers, ladies and twinklers later distributed food packets which had biscuits, chocolates and chips. Chairman Tr.Alex handed over certificates. Every single child was awarded a certificate and receiving the certificates gave them such a sense of pride.

Govt. LP School, South Chitoor

CBRT 131’s sponsor school the Government LP School at Chitoor had an eventful childrens day this year. Apart from the usual school uniform distribution and awarding of scholarships to 20 students, they had a lot more in store.

The school was presented with the World Cup football, plastic chairs, 2 computer tables and 2 executive chairs. Not forgetting the teachers, they were presented with electric lunch boxes. As part of the Read India Inititive, the school library was presented with books too. A small dental camped followed and all the children got dental kits comprising of tooth brushes and paste.

A sumptuous lunch of biriyani and fruit salad with ice cream was served and all the children and staff were delighted.

The highlight of the event was the playground, which got a complete face-lift. The playground revamp made the children’s day and seeing the smiles on their faces made ours.

Twinklers Secret Santa

Santhawanam Orphange is one place that is dear to the hearts of many tablers of CBRT 131. This Christmas season, we at CBRT 131 celebrated with a difference. Primarily a twinkler activity, every twinkler was given a name of a child who stays at the orphanage. With a fixed budget in mind, they were given the task of getting a Christmas present for their new Christmas friend.  Since the age was also mentioned in the list, the twinklers had to make the presents personal too.

On Christmas eve, all the presents were delivered to the children by some of the tablers, ladies and twinklers in preson. The sheer joy on the faces of the kids, knowing that the present was bought specially with them in mind was truly priceless.

We are going to try and make this an annual CBRT 131 tradition.

CBRT 131 Publicity

Publicity was definitely the name of the game when it came to CBRT 131. The Round Table India Movement got maximum coverage in such a short span of time.

Publicity activities included 5 Hoardings at very prominent locations across Cochin city, table tent cards installed at premium retail outlets and hotels and newspaper coverage in 5 leading regional and English dailies.

No publicity is complete without and online presence and 131 definitely took this seriously. A special cover page was made with the Round Table India visuals and at the same time every tabler and lady of 131 changed their cover page to the said image. The Facebook home screen was bombarded with images of different people changing their cover page to the same image. This definitely raised the visibility of Round Table India.
