A Sathyagraha for Sustainability at Kumaraguru Institutions
Kumaraguru Institutions has organized week long events and programmes to pay tribute to the father of our nation on the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Kumaraguru Microcosm, a flagship of Kumaraguru Institutions is a seed to making a coexisting, inclusive and sustainable environment for the quality of life of humans and all other living partners in the campus.
Shri Shankar Vanavarayar, Joint Correspondent, Kumaraguru Institutions, Mr. Saravanan, Program Manager, Kumaraguru Institute of Agriculture, HoDs, faculty members and Staff along with around 300 students from Kumaraguru Institutions and 30 volunteers from various NGOs and Corporates in the region around the campus came together as a community to initiate the creation of a percolation pond that can harvest 32,00,000 liters of rain-water on 02 October 2019. With this percolation pond, Kumaraguru Campus will ensure that every single drop of rainwater that falls on the campus is harvested during rain. This percolation pond will benefit in ensuring groundwater recharge for all the neighboring residential areas. After the Shramdaan, volunteers felt extremely content and happy to have contributed their part to the society and look forward for more such opportunities.
