PROJECTS UNDERGOING BY ENACTUS KAMALA NEHRU COLLEGE:-
- Project Kadam – Kadam was launched with the impetus to help the cobbler community, who fall under the most pauperized sections of the Indian society, with their meagre to almost no income on the daily basis.
Kadam, as unique as it is, also fulfils the objective of sustainability through recycling discarded denim in probably one of the most meaningful ways as denim is a soil coagulant which is highly degrading for the environment.
Also, taking into consideration this all male occupation, the discarded denim was converted into tailored pouches by women tailors, thus making denim act as a gender equalizer.
Today, with a firm motive to support as many cobblers and tailors, Enactus KNC set it’s goals higher to deliver the best we can. Kadam, just like its very name, has laid foundations to function as the stepping stones to a better lifestyle for the downtrodden communities.
- Project Samarth – People with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) face problems with communication and behaviour, they have trouble learning and understanding what other people think and feel, making it harder for them to express themselves.
But if their skills are channelised in the right way, it can lead to really productive results, making them independent and self-reliant. They might have trouble communicating but they are unusually good at art, music, math, memory and creative work.
Enactus KNC see this potential and want the world to realise it too. Hence, we are coming up with our new project ‘Samarth’ to work with this community and help them find their place in the society, a place full of love, respect and acceptance.
