Future/Proposed Activities

Computer Training Workshop for The Government Employees
The Indian Government had done all the necessary arrangement to execute the e-governance. But when it comes to ground level the initiative is lacking in several aspects of the execution. Because the all Government employees who are working from long time are not able to adopt modern working techniques. They have worked with the manual/conventional working style by doing all the things by writing. Due to that it is very tough for them to work with this all kind of software‘s and the facilities provided by the government.

Problems faced by employees:

1.Lack of knowledge about the operations related to their day to day work like email, scanning, online searching etc.
2.The employees are not aware about the data exchanges like uploading and downloading.
3. They do not know the use of Social Media.
4.Not aware about the Cyber Security and Cyber Crime due to that the important data can be shared easily.
5. Not aware about the government portals which can be used in their daily work.
6.Not aware about the online surfing of needed data and many other internet related activities.
7. By lacking behind increase the work load of the employee.

Plastic Free City: Awareness Campaigns
It is common knowledge that the use of well known polymer polythene like plastics which are cross linked polymers and which are very tough find tremendous applications in daily life as they are very light durable, stable cheap and hard materials which can be put to several uses in housing, packing, transporting, medicine, tools and machine making.

It is also common knowledge that unbridled and wanton use of polythene and plastic by people throughout the whole country has been posing great danger affecting the life of people and animals. In rainy season the drainage gets choked due to garbage and plastics dumped and not timely cleared by Plastic Free City: Awareness Campaigns civic authorities. This results into flooding of cities and towns and paralyzing life of people. The animals who eat the food along with plastic and polythene bags ultimately dieone menace posed by wanton use of polythene plastic is not limited to India but it is now a global problem.

Hence it is a high time the issue needs to be addressed seriously for which awareness among people needs to be spread.

It is in this view of the matter that our organisation carried out awareness campaigns in the Yavatmal city through which people in general are enlightened to avoid use of plastic as far as possible and instead resort to use of alternatives such as cloth bags, jute bags, paper bags and other such disposable material which do not cause any danger to the environment, soil, animals and human beings when such material is destroyed or disposed off after use. The hazards of plastic have been explained to the citizens. The campaign to arouse awareness on the important and serious matter is in the interest of all citizens. Shantikunj contemplates to raise the pitch of the campaign higher and higher in order to make the city free of polymer and polythene.

As a part of our programmes not only proper information, knowledge is imparted through banners, seminars, lectures etc. but the organisation took initiative to distribute bags made of proper cloth free of cost to the vendors to start with and to encourage them to stop use of polythenes.

This activity is not a onetime event but needs to be carried out at regular intervals in future so as to successfully achieve the goal ‗Plastic free Yavatmal City‘.
