Khushiyon ka Recycle
'Be the change you want to see in the world' - Mahatma Gandhi Aaina, the official social awareness club of IBS Hyderabad believes in in bringing a big change through small changes. Aaina in collaboration with Goonj, an NGO that positions the under- utilized urban material as a development resource for the rural parts of India, organized a stationery donation campaign ‘Khushiyon Ka Recycle.’ The items collected were to be distributed to the far flung village schools which are deprived of the basic stationery item. This was a leap to support education for a better India
Joy of sharing- The more you give, the more you receive.
At times we realize that gaining or acquiring something gives less pleasure than sharing or giving it to someone who would really cherish it more than we do’. And one good thing is that one is never at loss by sharing. Club Aaina on auspicious occasion of Diwali takes immense pleasure in celebrating the festival with house-keeping staff of IBS Hyderabad by giving them packet of sweets.
