Thuvakkam – Be The Change

Newsletter Edition: Vol 3. Issue 03 – March 2022

Dear Readers,

Happy to bring you all Thuvakkam’s March  Newsletter.

Mindfulness is an important aspect of our life. The coordination between our senses,thoughts and feelings is directly proportional to the output we are able to achieve as a part of our activities. To add on to it, it isn’t  limited to the individual and extends to everyone around us.

In the month of February, Thuvakkam planned and conducted 15 events out of which 9 events were conducted in the offline mode and rest, virtually.

Thuvakkam contributed significantly in the month of February by working in the domains of environment,education, and humanity. Plantation and maintenance activities were carried out in all our project sites. Karka Kasadara session began anew at MGR Nagar Government Higher Secondary. Thuvakkam had also created environment awareness paintings in the school. In the process we have touched over 6,000 lives, impacting more than 16,000 lives.

As the spotlight of the month Thuvakkam in collaboration with HCL created a Green School at government Higher Secondary School, MGR Nagar on 2nd and 3rd of February 2022. Green School is a combination of Kitchen Gardening and Clean and Colour. The event benefited 5,000 people sustainably impacting the lives of 10,000 people.

In order to bring a collective social change it is important to identify the internal and external conflicts we face as an individual. Thereby letting us attain a level of self sufficiency wherein the actualisation we process within ourselves kinders our spirits to go on a quest to fulfill the unfulfilled void of those around us.

Together let us be mindful,strive to attain a level of self sufficiency wherein division creates a space for coexistence without making us fall for differences.
