PP Shirish Kshirsagar
The Rotary Club of Dombivli City was chartered in the year 2000. Since then the club has been undertaking projects which benefit humanity and the society at large, with particular emphasis to education and student welfare.
Some of the key project completed by Club are as under.
Science on Wheels
The club implemented an unique project in Mokhada Taluka tribal belt , Science on Wheels. It constitutes a science laboratory set-up in a Maruti Omni van. The van is equipped with laboratory equipments, specimens and chemicals required for demonstrating scientific experiments to the students of secondary schools.
The van would be going around four schools on a weekly basis and the students would be introduced to the practical aspect of science for the first time in their lives. This project would benefit around 600 students from four schools, educating children from the tribal belt
PAANI- Jal Hai toh Kal Hai
It is our endeavour to provide clean water under our project “Nal Paani Yojana” @ Ghanwal village – Mokhada. Mokhada block is 100% tribal belt of Thane district and agriculture is the main source of income. The villagers from Ghanwal have to travel 4 to 5 Km for fetching drinking water for their households. Women have to invest more than 6 hours for a day and the effort involved is very high. Dropout of girl students from schools is a fallout of this situation.
Club has built a new well, Making of a subsurface bund ( Blocking the water seepage through soil & will benefit in enhancing life of the well by approx. 3 months ) The idea is to provide potable drinking water to their doorstep. The population of Ghanwal village is around 1200 villagers and with this project it has directly benefit them.
Women’s Digital Centre
This project has been declared as *SMART Project* by our *DG Dr Mohan Chandavarkar* for Rotary Year 2019-20. The Women’s Digital Center is a long-term sustainable project for empowering women (girl students and working/professional/home-makers women) through computer education to help them participate in the Digital India and Digital Economy.
With the donations from Orange Foundation France and Club’s effort RCDC have set up Women’s Digital Center at Dombivli – exclusively for women. The objective of this center is to increase Digital Literacy amongst women by providing them with computer education to develop skills and proficiency to make use of computer for their school & college education and vocation for the working women.
