ROTARACT CLUB

The Rotaract Club of NMIMS ASMSOC is a group of enthusiastic students who strive to achieve self-development through fellowship and service. Rotaract is an international youth organization, tied up with Rotary International, which undertakes projects to bring a positive change in the world. Rotaract stands for Rotary in Action. In cities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to make a difference while having fun and bonding over service. In the year 2019-20 Rotaractors have taken it upon themselves to be the change they wish to see and 'make it happen'. The theme of the club in accordance with the district theme is 'Dream, Design, Deliver' and we at Rotaract strive to stand by it. The club initiatives range from beach cleanup drive, open mic and menstrual hygiene session with municipal schools among others.

    Stray Strong was an RC NMIMS' ASMSOC x Paws Hunger collaboration, a 20-day volunteering event conducted from 10th September to 10th October 2020 for feeding the strays (dogs, cats, cows, or birds) in our neighbourhood. The event saw the participation of all ages and from different places in the country. An instruction manual was prepared and provided to all volunteers what-to and what-not-to feed, how to approach a stray, etc., was mentioned. Activities like meme contests and photography events were conducted to keep volunteer engagement. 'Awaaz'  was our medical aid partner who helped us provide first aid to the injured stray dogs all over Mumbai for free of cost. Our reflective collar partner, 'Super Dodo, ' provided reflective collars to volunteers all over India at a minimal cost. Zomato Feeding India (ZFI), looking at our initiative, approached us to continue this event by collaborating with them.

Period Power is an initiative to create awareness and importance about menstrual hygiene. We collaborated with a pad company called 'Pink days,' who helped us with pad packets. The pad donation drive was being conducted simultaneously in two different locations, i.e., Wadala (E) and Nehru Nagar (Vile Parle). Together with the club members and volunteers from 'Help Other' in Wadala East and from 'Ray of Hope' in Nehru Nagar, we distributed 300+ pads through the slums and ensured that pads and required education were provided in every house with women and young girls. Proper measures and safety precautions were taken and kept in mind in light of the Pandemic. 
  •  Dhaagein : 
    We often throw clothes which do not fit or the ones which we do not need. To ensure that those clothes reach the people who need them most, we at RC NMIMS' ASMSOC organized a Clothes Distribution in collaboration with Girl Up Neev (Mumbai). To enhance and have a more significant impact on the project, simultaneous drives were conducted in various parts of the country, i.e., Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Nagpur, Guwahati Bangalore. By helping 2000+ people in each city, we played our part in making a difference in society. Proper measures were taken for Covid-19 while conducting this event.
