Soroptimist International is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programmes leading to their social and economic development. In light of this noble cause, a representative from Soroptomist International Bombay came forward and organised an Old Newspaper Collection Drive at Dr. Pillai Global Academy, New Panvel.
The collection of old newspapers happened over a span of one month and the project was driven out of a great degree of excitement as it was conducted as an inter-house activity. There was active participation from every member of the four houses of the school – Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Topaz. Each house was enthusiastic in collecting newspapers because this was the most score providing activity for the academic year.
Every year this competition takes place and each year more than 1000 kilograms of newspapers are collected and sold. This year around 1400 kilograms of newspapers were collected and sold. The proceeds from the activity go towards the charitable cause at Soroptomist International Bombay.
Overall the drive was a great success and we hope for more collection the next year.
