VASTRA-SAMMAN is a nationwide campaign being organized in over 25 cities all over the country, aiming over 75 colleges. The idea is to tap the unexplored treasure of resourceful waste lying within the boundaries of the hostel rooms. The campaign calls for the integration of the youth to bring a change in the lives of the needy. GOONJ is an internationally appreciated NGO working in the deepest roots in India to address the social issue of clothing and resource mobilization. AARAMBH, an IIT Kharagpur student body has taken the initiative of taking GOONJ’s VASTRA-SAMMAN campaign to the masses by the hands of the youth.
Kartavya, a student body frm NIT Jamshedpur joins the cause… the yuva is uniting for a definite change… Vastra-samman grows beyond bounds 🙂
