VGEC students spread Warmness to needy people

Winter is here: VGEC students & NGO to distribute cloths to needy people

 Ahmedabad: National Service Scheme Unit of Vishwakarma Government Engineering College in association with an NGO named Mission Spread Smiles started a project named “Winter is coming!”. In this event, volunteers of NSS spread the word in the localities they live in and collected around 500 clothes through various means.

Around 10 volunteers covered various areas and enthusiastically took part in the collection. This event has been one of the best event of this unit which even helped to create a good bonding between the volunteers. Volunteer Nirva Bhalsod who handled Jodhpur Area said that it was a great experience making people aware regarding the cause and getting smiles to be gifted to the less privileged along with lots and lots of warm clothes.

‘Spreading smiles to the mankind without expectation of getting something in return teaches my children to work for nation selflessly and makes them a good citizen,’ says NSS VGEC Program Officer Prof. Alpesh Dafda. Dr R.K. Gajjar, I/c Vice Chancellor of Gujarat technological University (GTU) appreciated the efforts of students and said that through such programs engineering students can identify problems of society and can try to provide solutions.
