Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics' beloved college festival, Umang, is not only a hub of culture, art, and talent but also a place of opportunities for students who aspire to change society for the better, thanks to Parvaah, its social cause wing, that has initiated, planned, organized, and executed numerous projects this year with resounding success, all of which are a storehouse of lessons as well as beacons of change for many others out there.

The first one was, 'A Cause for the Paws.' On account of World Animal Day, Team Umang collaborated with 'Utkarsh Global Foundation' for an initiative to feed nearly 3000 stray dogs in the suburb of Mulund in Mumbai. The next event, ‘Fantasy Killer’ was in collaboration with the Lions Club of Juhu, wherein Team Umang had arranged a live session to spread awareness regarding drug abuse among college students.

On the very auspicious day of Dussehra and International Rural Women’s Day, ‘Geolife Youth Club’, ‘MAD Foundation’, ‘Keshav Shrushti Foundation’ and Umang collaborated to organize an event to distribute sanitary napkins among the tribal women in Palghar, and enlighten them on the crucial aspects of menstrual hygiene.

Through the Parvaah initiative,’Colours of Life’, Team Umang had organised an art workshop for underprivileged children to enrich the young minds and explore their vast potential. In order to add comfort in the lives of the elders in our society, Team Umang had collaborated with Lions Club of Juhu to donate wheelchairs. 

It is humbling and overwhelming to see a multitude of changes in people's lives and Parvaah plans to continue to do the same.
