Time: 7:00 – 8:00
IEM E-Cell conducted “A Street Cleaning Drive” under the NEN E-Week associated with Wadhwani Foundation banner . The campaign took place from 7:00 am to 8:00 am. Due to the huge turn up, the participants were divided into groups of 10 to cover particular zones of Saltlake, Bidhannagar, Newtown, Rajarhat which were easily accessible by public transport.
Each and every group were given names, IDs, equipments, and other people to support them. Sufficient amount of drinking water, first-aid and other things were provided too, for emergency situations. Sharp at 6.30am after assembling , the groups left for their specific zones and at 7:00 they started their work. Even though they were asked to take a 5 min break, they refused as they were totally engrossed in their work.
It was organised by IEM E-Cell , but it didn’t appear to be so when bystanders and passers-by came up on their own and requested to be a part of the drive. None were refused and they too joined the noble work.
Thus calling it a grand success, when strangers become one with us,in helping us on a good cause.
