PROJECT – 4 @ GHANDHY ENGINEERING COLLEGE, SURAT, GUJARAT, INDIA
Hearts@work foundation celebrated International Yoga Day 2017” in style by giving a strong message on health as well as environment protection which is an important part of overall health and peace of mind. ;" Hearts@work organised a program at Dr S. & S. S. Ghandhy College of Engineering and Technology, Surat. Which was followed by tree plantation program at the college campus where 850 trees and 250 bottle plants” were planted by the joint efforts of Hearts@work volunteers, college students and college staff.
Viral Sudhirbhai Desai founder of Hearts@work , the young and dynamic CEO of Zenitex announced to plant more than 5,000 trees” in the coming months at the Ghandhy college campus. The choice of plants planted by the foundation was also unique and meaningful as they have chosen plants which are 4ft to 8 ft height and already nurtured in the plants’ nursery for a minimum of 2 - 3 years. This would help them grow faster and add greenery to the campus very soon. The choice of the campus for plantation was an apt decision as Ghandhy college campus being centrally located can bring huge change to the climate of the city as well.
Viral Desai & Hearts@work has pledged to plant maximum trees possible. Last year on June 5 2016 (World Environment Day) ” thus launching the “Clean India - Green India” ” initiative under the leadership of Viral Desai. They planted more than 8,000 trees” last year. Viral Desai inaugurated Biggest Green Wall In The Textile Industry at Zenitex” compound this year. On this 5th June 2017 (World Environment Day) ” Viral Desai has pledged that he will be keep on planting trees for the rest of his life, so tree plantation will be an integral part and project of Hearts@work .
According to Viral Desai, Tree plantation is easiest way to fight pollution and global warming. And the best way to keep ourselves happy and healthy. His Vision is that, “When we celebrate festivals or even birthdays, we should celebrate them by planting trees or gifting plants to each other”. This he believes would be the best and meaningful way of celebration.
Viral Desai further believes that if textile entrepreneurs initiate and volunteer causes like this then it will set a new benchmark for Indian Textile Industry on Global level.
Principal of the college, N. A. Sangani also applauded the initiative taken up by Hearts@work . Professor Pavan Panwala coordinated the entire event for the college. Other dignitaries like Bharat Shah and Balubhai Patel from NGO Chhanyado were also present and encouraged the work done by the Hearts@work . Naturopath, environmentalist and Ayurvedic Dr. Rayomand Parabia also took part in this activity and gave insights about usefulness of different plants. He also will be an active consultant for section of species to Hearts@work for all future plantation drives.
These type of tree plantation drives is an encouraging sign for the future and should motivate others to come forward and do their part or join organizations as such.
And thus, we CAN say that “AN ENTREPRENEUR WALKS THE PATH OF AN ECOPRENEUR”
