Every individual lives on a hope, a hope of having a better future, a hope to be with someone long lost, a hope to live our dreams. This hope has made many lives possible. A Non Government Organization called “UMEED” is another hope of making our city a better place. We got to know them through one of their cleanliness campaign held at Jal Mahal, Jaipur few weeks back, these people were so good that we couldn’t resist ourselves and asked about their selfless efforts; from there we got this opportunity to know everything about “UMEED”.
Godliness is next to Cleanliness”, we all are very much familiar with the quote. But Indian’s are totally opposite .We ourselves are creating a dirty place to live with. But we need to choose a Safe City, An affordable city and a clean city for our Bright future. So we need to wake up to fight against these ‘dust bunnies’.
UMEED embarked an event “CLEAN CITY, CLEAN INDIA” to roll out people and raise their standards by using ‘dust bins’ everywhere. They started with a ‘nukkad natak’ to guide people about the present scenario; UMEED also framed posters for effective impact on tribe at Jal Mahal in the presence of Jaipur’s MLA, Parshad and Nagar Nigam’s workers,they started to our work to clean our environment and taught people to use dustbins and elevate the prestige of India.
UMEED is a Non-Governmental Organization under Rajasthan Society Registration Act 28, 1958 which was started as a social activity club under the heads of college students. The club was established on 14’Nov’ 2011 (children’s day) under the extra-curricular activities. The club was started with approximately 13 members who have now increased up to 200+ members and 500+ volunteers. Under the span of these years, UMEED channelled many social wagers like plantation, blood -donation, distribution of clothes and foods to needy people etc. and is continuing to promote social issues and guiding people.
Each Moment in a day-brings hope in a way. Making a difference to the world may seem like an enormous task, but Umeed team with the collective effort of everyone makes small contributions with a lot of heart since its inception in 2011 as a club, Endeavors are multiplied in order to bring a hope in the dark. From Feeding and Educating a few to Donating and Planting by a few has inspired hundred others to do the same. Thereby, Team’s positive actions helped them to get registered as NGO in the name of Umeed-A hope for better life. UMEED not only help under-served people but also organize volunteer blood donation camps in all the areas they are called upon.
In their own words the people at UMEED says “We are highly privileged to connect less fortunate children constrained by their financial status with our Umeed-sponsors, for each child’s educational needs. With uninterrupted efforts, we have successfully launched an unprecedented Clean-City” they added “Clean-India drive on August 16, 2015 at Jal Mahal to clean the surroundings area of Mansagar Lake in the Pink City. We, a team of more than 150 people, has targeted aims like eliminating the open defecation, complete disposal and reuse of solid and liquid wastes, bringing behavioral changes to people and motivate health practices, spreading cleanliness awareness among people, strengthening the cleanliness, waste management and sanitation systems for ensuring hygiene across the city. We had also invited everyone from the locality to promote our effort to keep the environment clean and refrain others from polluting the lake further with slogans, solo performances and nukkad naataks.”
UMEED’s team tried to create awareness among the people to keep their city clean and help maintain its natural beauty. Dressed in White T-Shirt with Organization’s Logo, they gave out the message to condemn pollution and throw the waste only in dust-bins.
A Message from UMEED…
A Few hours of voluntary labor to the cause will inspire 100 others to do the same. It need not be an enormous task. What counts is the effort!
