The newly-elected members of the Inner Wheel Club of Bangalore (IW Dist 319) have drawn up some elaborate plans for the year ahead. The projects of this club largely revolve around issues related to women and child.
Education, healthcare, rehabilitation of street children, schools for children with disability — are just a few of the initiatives the newly elected team has planned for the coming year.
“We offer scholarships to 18 high school students in different schools across the City. This in addition to computer education to a few other students,” says Usha Vishwanath, President of the club.
The club has also joined hands with Freedom Foundation to aid and assist children who are born with HIV. Educating them and rehabilitating them is high on the list.
“We always verify the credibility of the organisation before we team up with them. It is important to work in a transparent manner,” says Sudha Rao, secretary of the club.
The members of the club also conduct various leadership training programmes among schools, colleges and other corporates as well.
“We have also adopted a couple of school in a few villages in and around Bangalore where we have got water filters installed and have also put together a question bank for the high school students,” adds Usha.
The Club organises fundraisers but draws from Inner Wheel Club of Bangalore Charitable Trust for its larger projects, “we draw our funds from the Trust for our bigger projects such as vocational training. The funds are used only for specified projects,” says Bharathi Ramdas, co-opted member of the Club.
The committee members of the club meet every month and draw up their programmes. The Club surges forward with their motto of conviction, compassion and consistency.
