SAVE FOOD SAVE LIFE CAMPAIGN

Save Food, Save Life is an awareness campaign that is organized for the purpose to spread awareness about food wastage and the importance of saving food among students. It is reported that the world overall wastes about 1.3 billion tonnes of food a year, while Indians, too, waste as much food as the whole of the UK consumes. If each one of the 7 billion folks on this planet chooses to eat mindfully, not goaded or driven by greed or want, we would have sufficient food for the starving millions, too.

This awareness campaign was done in collaboration with Dwaraka Doss Goverdhan Doss Vaishnav College (Arumbakkam) with the Department of Bachelor of Business Administration. The students will be showing their support to our campaign by giving handprints to the save food save life support board. The students showed greater interest in the campaign. Overall 250 students from various departments participated in the campaign and 128 students enrolled as volunteers for the Neighbourhood Foundation.

International Coffee Day 2021
Honouring the frontline workers with a cup of coffee!

On October 01 2021, on the occasion of International Coffee Day, Neighbourhood Foundation got to the grounds to provide 100 free cups of coffee to frontline sanitary workers of Chennai city in collaboration with Madras Coffee House, as a mark of respect to those sweepers, rag pickers, cleaners and manual scavengers around Alandur, Saidapet, Guindy around 12:00 P.M and 03:00 P.M. The frontline sanitary workers were some of the most under-appreciated labourers of the society who work around the clock to support the massive infrastructure of such a massive urban agglomeration like Chennai. Sanitary workers of any category must not be ignored or taken lightly or ill-treated at any time since their absence will potentially lead the society to decay.
