    Paani Foundation ‘Water Cup Initiative 2018’

    Bitwise Foundation in collaboration with Paani Foundation participated in the ‘Water Cup Initiative’ on 1st May,2018. Around 80 volunteers came together at Sarafwadi village in Indapur Taluka to do ‘Shramdaan’ (voluntary labour) and helped the villagers build many contour bunding structures on that day with their amazing teamwork and collaboration. The contour bunding structures helped the villagers complete one of their tasks to participate in the Paani Foundation ‘Water Cup Initiative’ competition and also achieve their goal of building  maximum watershed structures in their village before the rains. The volunteers offered maximum ‘Shramdaan’ on that day to help them achieve their goal. Cheers to Bitwise Foundation volunteers :)

    Testimonials

    Paani Foundation ‘Water Cup Initiative’ is an excellent example of how peoples’ movement can work effectively and efficiently to attain its objectives. I’m sure within the next 2 to 3 years, the efforts of this initiative will show results and will make Maharashtra drought free. Would love to participate in more such people led initiatives such as rejuvenating forests, improvement on land fertility, maximum use of solar energy, etc.

    Assistant Manager ( Travel & Immigration)

    It was a great experience being part of Bitwise Foundation initiative for the first time. Contributing to the Paani Foundation ‘Water Cup Initiative’ was totally an awesome experience and a memorable day of my life, where we got an opportunity to do our bit towards our Motherland.It made us realize our duty towards our society rather than just doing a ‘Shramdaan’. Every Bitwise Foundation volunteer showed a great teamwork and collaboration while building contour bunding watershed structures for Sarafwadi village.Looking forward to participate in many more such initiatives in the future.

  • Bhajan Session at Spandan! March 20, 2018

    Bhajan Session at Spandan!

    The Bitwise Foundation, volunteering team planned a get together for the ‘Spandan’ patients on the 10th March, 2018. The idea behind this initiative was to help the 40 patients have a day filled with fun and interaction. As most of the patients enjoy listening to Bhajans, we organized a Bhajan session for all of them, that would add to their mental well-being. Also, the volunteering team decided to meet each patient personally and make sure that they gave them an opportunity to perform, enact or talk about something that would really make them happy. Many volunteers also invited their family members to this event. To add a surprise element to this initiative, we presented two large photo frames to Spandan that had all patients photos collaged together. The patients seeing their own picture were so overwhelmed and  happy which made our day. Also, Bitwise Foundation gifted a napkin to each patient keeping in mind their health and hygiene aspect. During our visit this time we also noticed quite a few new faces at Spandan as many of our old patients had passed away and new patients had filled their places. Bitwise Foundation also arranged for some healthy refreshments for all patients, keeping in mind their medical conditions.

    Testimonials:

    After visiting Spandan Oldage Home, what I realized is “Happiness is a state of Mind and People don’t need gifts or money, they just need your company and time”. I will keep visiting and spending time with all Aaji and Ajoba :)

  • Fulfill A Wish -School Shoe Distribution January 26, 2018

    Fulfill A Wish- School Shoe Distribution

    This Christmas Bitwise Foundation collaborated with two new NGOs for ‘’Fulfill A Wish’ event. We shortlisted ‘Shri Sai Gramin Punarrachana Sanstha, Aurangabad’ and ‘Umada Samaj Vikas Pratisthan, Pune’ for this event. These two NGOs take care of these under-privileged child’s education, whose parents were farmers and have committed suicide due to personal loss or financial debts. Having requested these children to share their Christmas wishes, they all requested for a pair of new black school shoe as a Christmas gift. To make their wishes come true, we had Bitwisers who became their Secret Santa by contributing 300 rupees for a pair of school Shoe. As we were facing issues with the sizes shared by the NGO team, we decided to collect a minimal cost for each pair of shoe and asked the NGOs to purchase the accurate shoe sizes from their local vendor. To ensure that the 252 children received our gifts, we had one of the Bitwisers parents who are from Aurangabad to be part of the shoe distribution on 1st January, 2018. Receiving their new school shoes the children were really excited and happy. Simultaneously, we coordinated with Umada Samaj Vikas Pratisthan and had the 6 school shoes distributed to children out there.

    These special children taught us what happiness is all About!

    Eyes, filled with twinkling hopes, gave us an insight to their small but HAPPY world. Here’s how these amazingly special kids, from Centre For Special Education, celebrated Children’s Day with Bitwise Foundation volunteers on 15th November, 2016. We organized a puppet show for these children which they enjoyed the most and a few of them participated with the puppet for a dance performance. The children were thrilled at the Bollywood songs that were played by the puppeteer. They also loved the song sung by Swapnil Jain who was one of the volunteers. The children loved the cake, gulab Jamun & dhokla arranged for them. One of the child even requested to teach them how to perform with puppets & also asked us to come every year.

    Testimonials

    Being at Centre for Special Education, its altogether a different experience. Thanks to all kids out there, to allow me to be a part of their life. Being with them teaches us to accept life with a smile and be happy with whatever you have.

  • Bal Kalyan Diwali Items stall November 4, 2016

    Bal Kalyan Diwali Items stall

    The endearing part about Diwali, is that it is no longer limited to celebrations at home with friends and family. It is also seen as an opportunity to bond with people from all walks of life, not just to celebrate, but also to raise awareness about certain issues. This Diwali Bitwise Foundation collaborated with Bal Kalyan to set up a Diwali items stall at Bitwise. The idea behind this initiative was to spread cheer in the lives of the differently abled children, on the occasion of Diwali. Bal Kalyan Sanstha displayed different items like diyas, gifting items, pen stands, torans (Doorway hanging), key chain hangers etc. The profit made out of the sale would be used for the development of differently abled children of Bal Kalyan Sanstha. This year we received an amazing response from the Bitwisers as most of the items got sold out.

    Testimonials

     

    Really loved the designs of the items that were displayed by Bal Kalyan Sanstha. Bought a few of them for Diwali celebrations at home. Would love to have more such events organized in the future.

  • Eye Donation Awareness Campaign November 4, 2016

    Eye Donation Awareness Campaign

    With a view to sensitize the people towards the importance of eye donation, Bitwise Foundation joined hands with National Institute of Ophthalmology on World sight day on 13th October, 2016. Dr. Aditya Kelkar a renowned Ophthalmologist from National Institute of Ophthalmology (NIO) was invited to Bitwise for a session with the employees. During the session he talked about the huge gap between the number of people who need corneal transplants and the number of donors. He said that people should realize the importance of eye donation as after the death of an individual his eyes go waste, he requested each member present during the session to educate their family members & friends about the importance of eye donation & encourage them to pledge their eyes after death. He also resolved their myths about eye donation that only extraction of cornea is done in most of the cases for corneal grafting to remove corneal blindness & not the entire eyeball is extracted. He also told the employees that eyes of a dead person can be donated with the consent of the relative, even if a person has not pledged to donate his/ her eyes when the person was alive. The session ended with Dr. Aditya Kelkar resolving all queries, breaking age old myths related to eye donation. Towards the end of the session pledge forms were donated to the interested employees who would be given a donors card for the same.

    Testimonials

    It was a really thought provoking session & this session answered all my questions & fears related to eye donation.

  • Diwali Celebrations by Bitwise Foundation October 28, 2016

    Diwali Celebrations by Bitwise Foundation

    Bitwise Foundation collaborated with Seva Social Initiative this Diwali, for a Lantern making session with 35 Doorstep school children. The Bitwise volunteers present for the activity helped the children to assemble the lantern kits. It was a great team activity that taught all the teams members to work in coordination. The panel frames that were used in the lantern making were made out of recycled waste plastic. Through this program we also helped the waste pickers make an earning from the lantern. Mr. Jayant Pai from Social Seva initiative, who was present at the venue with his team of waste pickers educated the children about importance of recycling plastic waste & how useful items could be created and used for household related purposes. Through this event we were to enlighten the young minds to go eco-friendly and celebrate the festival with colorful lanterns assembled by each one of them.

     

    Testimonials

     

    The joy of making something with your hands along with a team of young little talented children and witnessing the outcome which is so beautiful truly makes your day very special! It was a very special Saturday afternoon which was spent with these little kids to craft a lantern out of the frames which is made out of recycled plastic waste. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm of young children and also got to hear the aspirations of few. Making kids learn the importance of recycling which was another important message that was conveyed through this activity. This was truthfully & the best thing to do this Diwali which I will cherish for years to come. I will encourage my friends and family members also to participate in such activity as this is the most gratifying work one can do – giving back some time to the needy children which will enable them to learn new things and be future ready.

     

    Manoj A Chhugani

    “The experience at the Lantern Making Session was great and reminded us of our childhood.

    Also the idea of “re usage of the household stuff” is really motivating and also a small step towards a better tomorrow. And we are glad that we were a part of this initiative.”

  • International Day of Older persons! October 12, 2016

    International Day of Older persons!

    Contrary to the widely-held ageist stereotypes, research from the International Federation on Ageing shows that the older you are, the happier you become. This optimism was on display at Spandan Pratishthan where Bitwise Foundation celebrated the International Day of Older Persons on 2nd October, 2016 along with Spandan patients with a captivating show of singing and merrymaking. The surprise element of this celebration was, where the Bitwise volunteers took a step to invite their family members and close relatives to this celebration. The idea of this initiative was to make their ever longing dream to spend time with their family members come true. The festive spirit continued as these patients recalled some of the best memories of their life in what became an enriching discussion. The path down the memory lane highlighted both interesting personal anecdotes and a few memories of their past days.

    We had also planned a set of fun activities and games to help each patient get an opportunity to express themselves in the way they were most comfortable in. A few patients requested the volunteers to give them a chance to sing a song of their choice which everyone present their really appreciated. There was a singing performance by an artist arranged by Bitwise volunteers to add some musical flavor to the event. During our interactive sessions with the patients we got an opportunity to fulfil their requests like playing a song on our mobile phones, having a dance performance by our volunteers, some patients also requested to dance to the song of their choice. In one of our game session, we had some props arranged for them that included a cap, necklace bead & spectacles which they had to wear and reverse this action when giving the same props to the other participant, seeing these props the patients wanted their photos to be clicked with them and also slowly, these props became viral with most patients who requested their photos to be clicked with the same. We also had a selfie session with each patient along with their relatives to capture the moment. To make the selfie lively we had the photo frame prop designed by our team of Bitwise Foundation volunteers. We had a felicitation ceremony where we gifted roses to the Spandan patients & a few fruit baskets for the performance which was liked by all. Also, we have decided to frame the selfies & gift the same to each Spandan member as a memory of the day.

    Celebrating the vibrancy of this generation on occasions such as the International Day of Older Persons by Bitwise Foundation and their team of volunteers was an opportunity to share their wisdom and impact on society but also to dispel the stereotypes of ageing that perpetuate ageist attitudes. The aim of this celebration was to encourage the younger generation about their responsibilities towards the lives of older people to make their life better and happier by analyzing all the problems affecting them.

  • Eco– Friendly Ganesh Visarjan September 21, 2016

    Eco– Friendly Ganesh Visarjan

    Bitwise Foundation pledged this Ganapati festivity to do their bit towards the earth. SWaCH cooperative had appealed Bitwise for volunteers to bolster this cause. Around 15 volunteers supported this initiative and created an awareness to the devotees to discard flowers and other ceremonial waste in the Nirmalya kunds provided at each ghats and asked them to submerge the idols into the artificial tanks. Also, through this initiative the Nirmalya that would be collected would be taken to the landfill, where it would be used for composting. It was an extraordinary activity to spare the waterways from getting tainted with huge amounts of paper, plastic, thermocol and flowers.

    Testimonials

    First of all a big thanks to Bitwise Foundation for giving me an opportunity to volunteer for this cause. I was present for SWaCH ‘Nirmalya Project’ on 10th September, at Aundh ghat. Had a wonderful experience being part of this initiative. Almost 99% people with more than 500+ Ganesh Idols joined and cooperated with us to keep the Mula river clean on the occasion of Ganesh idol visarjan. We spoke to the people and motivated them to use the artificial tank for Visarjan. Due to the overwhelming support and response the artificial tank was almost full by 8 PM on that day.

    Thanks Bitwise Foundation for giving me an opportunity to volunteer for ‘Swach Nimalaya Collection Project’. It was an amazing experience. I volunteered on 15th September at Bund Garden ghat. I was assigned the task of counting the number of Ganesh idols to be immersed. Almost more than 1600+ idols had arrived at this ghat for immersion within 3 hrs. I was happy to see that more than 95% of Ganesh Idols were immersed in artificial water tanks.

  • Plastic Collection Drive September 6, 2016

    Plastic Collection Drive

    Today plastic is one of the most widely used and cheapest materials in the world. If you look around you would find plastic items everywhere. Did you ever wonder, what’s happens to all these plastic items dumped on this planet? It simply stays with us all our life. The only reason being that plastic are NOT bio-degradable. It may be difficult to accept but since plastic was invented, everything that has ever been made from this material still exists. As it takes around 700 years for plastic to “photo-degrade” – which means they will turn into little toxic bits of it as these items cannot decompose, biodegrade or get absorbed by nature.

    Having been aware about these alarming facts, Bitwise Foundation decided to do its bit towards the environment. We started looking for an organization that could help us with a solution to these problems. During the process we happened to meet ‘Keshav Sita Memorial Foundation Trust’ that specializes in this field & helps in converting waste plastic into ‘Polyfuel’ by the process of Catalytic Pyrolysis Process. The Polyfuel made, is given to underpriviledged people to use this fuel in their cooking stoves.

    Speaking to ‘Keshav Sita’ team we tried to understand their purpose behind this organization, and we realized they wanted to create awareness among the people about the amount of plastic consumed and also educate them about the importance of shredding waste plastic items in the right way. Bitwise Foundation contributed to this great cause, by collaborating with Keshav Sita Memorial Foundation Trust to organize a ‘Plastic Collection Drive’ at Bitwise. The drive was organized from 8th August to 26th August. Employees contributed generously to make this campaign a success. In total around 70 kgs. of waste plastic items were donated to them. Foundation plans to take a step further by continuing the waste plastic collection as an on-going process.

  • Jagriti School Visit July 26, 2016

    Jagriti School Visit

    ‘Jagriti Blind School’ visit that was planned on 6th July, gave us an opportunity to meet the 30 Bitwise sponsored students. As it was an Id holiday, we were lucky to find most of the students present in the hostel that day. Reaching the venue we saw all the students waiting to meet us with a smile. While interacting with Sakina Bedi from Jagriti, we got to know out of the 30 sponsored students of Bitwise only 25 students were present. As two students were withdrawn as they were having medical issues so they decided to ask their parents to take them home & take good care of their health. Also, Sakina told us that she would be replacing them with two new students and would share the names with us shortly. Around 3 other students who were day scholars out of the 30 Bitwise sponsored students had left for the day. We got an opportunity to interact only with 25 students who stayed in the hostel. Jaspreet Kaur who had joined us on this visit for the first time liked interacting with these kids, she sat in their hostel rooms, assembled all the different age group girls together to help them share their experiences and participate in the knowledge sharing session that she had with them. While Amit S Lodha and Aniket J Mundada took a few sessions with the students to see their progress in terms of their communication skill, values and also make them understand the purpose of our visit to their school. To help them understand the values of life a story telling session was taken up by Jaya Mishra to help them understand importance of being thankful for all that we have and learn to be happy with our surrounding.

    It gave us great pleasure to find these students happy in the hostel, being able to express themselves and benefitting from the student sponsorship program. Meeting these students always leaves us with a new message and helps us to understand how to face life positively.

    Testimonials

    It was such a great experience to visit the Jagriti Blind Girls School, I interacted with the students we had some talk I asked them about their dislike and like I had such a good time there.

    Without a doubt, no volunteer can go through this experience and remain untouched. It was one of the most humbling experiences to see the dignity and enthusiasm in all these children. The children are learning with a cheer that can only come with innocence of childhood.

  • Tree Plantation Campaign July 15, 2016

    Bitwise volunteers on tree plantation campaign at Vasundhara Hills on 25th June’16

    A tree plantation drive was undertaken by Bitwise Foundation at Vasundhara Hills in association with Vasundhara Organization on 25th June’16. This drive marked the extended celebration of ‘World Environment’ Month.

    It was yet another year of good response from all Bitwisers doing their bit to make this drive a success. This year we had a turnover of more than 60 employees coming to plant the sapling and laying the seeds of a brighter and pollution free environment. On Saturday morning, Bitwisers walked up the hill to reach the top of Vasundhara hills to plant the saplings in the pits kept ready by the Vasundhara Team.

    Mr. Anil Gaikwad, from Vasundhara NGO was really happy to see all people of different age groups come together for a common cause. He clearly said that the past and current year response clearly shows what the strength of an environmentally committed youth can do & help us to create a greener tomorrow. The Bitwise Volunteers formed a chain to carry the water from the tank created by the Vasundhara NGO to uphill to water the saplings that they planted. Seeing the team spirit and coordination between each of them gave a great sense of achievement. Also, there were few Bitwiser parents who came to plant the sapling & make this drive a success. Everyone was filled with a sense of Joy, of dedicating their Saturday towards the environment.

    This activity provided a great opportunity to employees to come out of the daily routine and acquaint themselves with the environment.

    Bitwisers are always encouraged to devote themselves towards doing their bit towards society. Organizing a blood donation camp is just another step in this direction.

    Keeping this tradition alive, Bitwise and the ‘Acharya Ananadrishiji Pune Blood Bank’ organized a day-long blood donation camp on 14th June, 2016, at Bitwise World Cafeteria and Bitwise Globus Cafeteria for all employees. About 126 employees registered for blood donation drive, out of which, 176 donors were able to donate blood as the donors went through a series of medical checkups before donating blood. The doctor from ‘Acharya Ananadrishiji Pune Blood Bank’ clearly educated the donors about their health condition, followed by a few checkups for blood pressure along with other tests.

    All employees who donated blood were given a Donor’s Card to facilitate them with an extraordinary service of a bottle of blood unit (of any blood group) whenever required for their immediate family members from ‘Acharya Ananadrishiji Pune Blood Bank’ in near future for a period of one year.

  • ECC – Doorstep School NGO Survey Program July 4, 2016

    ECC – Doorstep School NGO Survey Program

    Every Child Counts – Citizens’ Campaign a program designed by ‘Doorstep School NGO’ aims at enrolling every out-of-school child whose has the right to education as per the ‘Right To Education Act 2009′ (RTE). This right clearly states ‘Free and Compulsory’ Education to all children in the age group of 6 – 14 years.

    Even today, there are communities of construction laborers, pavement dwellers and other migrants who are not aware of their rights. As a result, there are a number of children who are out-of-school and a lot of government schools seats remain vacant due of this ignorance. To reach out to these out-of-school children, ‘Doorstep School NGO’ has collaborated with different corporates, with Bitwise being one of them to help them conduct surveys and identify these children.

    This year Bitwise choose to participate in this initiative by volunteering with the Doorstep representative who would guide them and help these volunteers in identifying the children, so that they could be enrolled before the academic year starts.

    Around 25 Bitwise volunteers conducted the survey at the location of their choice and had a real time experience at the sites. Through this campaign Bitwise volunteers realized the importance of doing their bit towards society and creating a great impact in the life of these children and their families. The volunteers played various roles like educating the parents about the education right and identifying these children. Overall a large number of children were identified and were gifted the ‘Right To Education’ with this initiative.

  • Visit to Jagriti Blind School April 28, 2016

    Visit to Jagriti Blind School

    On 15th March, Bitwise foundation volunteers visited Jagriti Blind School to meet the students. Interacting with the girls was fun. We had interaction sessions of games, quizzes and dance performances with them. We tried to make girls comfortable and we spent some quality time with them. Each child present there was a bundle of joy, full of energy and lots of positive vibes. They lived every moment to the fullest. During our interaction sessions we found that a few students were God gifted with a beautiful voice. They sang melodious songs for us. The children had built such good rapport with us that they wanted us to spend some more time with them. Few of the students made us perform along with them. They sent messages for all Bitwisers who assisted and interacted with them during their visit to Bitwise office. Infact, we were surprised that they still remembered the visit and also the name of the employees. This left us with a thought that how much our presence and action matter to these children and how much they look forward to our visits.

    Experience of Bitwisers who visited Jagriti Blind School:

    Neeru W Volunteer:
    It was a great experience being there and interacting with them. The spirit those girls have, that inspired me a lot and compelled me to think that nothing can stop you if you really want to achieve something. I feel lucky to be a part of such a foundation.

     

    Rasika Gonekar Experience:
    It was great experience while visiting and interacting with enthusiastic girls at Jagriti school. Girls are physically blind but they have strong memory and tremendous passion to enjoy the life. I had learned for them how to live each moment of life happily though we have lots of obstacles. Thanks to Bitwise foundation for giving us memorable and wonderful opportunity.

     

    Kiran R Dhawade :
    It was one of the most heart touching experiences I have had till now. Our eyes are the most important part of our body without which a normal person like me can never imagine what we would have done possibly. But after staying at the blind school for 2 hours, it changed my view. I understood how strong and powerful is a person’s willpower. And a man has so much strength within himself. It is the normal people with all physical features alright and in working condition tend to curse destiny for some reason or the other. Somewhere it is said that scarcity brings out the best in a person. And that was quite clear from the visit.

The drawing competition was organized for children who were physically challenged and from lower economic class.The event provided them an opportunity to express themselves. Around 500 children from various NGOs participated in the competition. The aim of this event was to spread the message of child right awareness.

    The event was held at KHS Erandwane on 18th October, 2015.
