Roshni Nilaya Alumni Association & Uxcel Donate Cash/Towel as Christmas Gifts for MCC Sanitation Staff

 Mangaluru: Every year, Ms Maria D’Costa of Mangaluru, the Director of Uxcel, Institute for Excellence, Attavar, Mangaluru comes up with unique programmes for the elderly, and this year was no exception- and recently she hosted the “Generation Walk The ramp Hand-In-Hand’ in association with Rotary Clubs of Bantwal and Mangalore Down Town, both sponsors of the event, at Forum Fiza Mall , where the elderly from all over Mangaluru walked the Ramp with their children and grandchildren. And now during the joyous season of Christmas, which is a celebration of sharing and giving, Ms D’costa came forward with her love and helping towards the hard working Pourakarmikas (Sanitation Staff/ Garbage Collectors), employed with Anthony Waste Handling Pvt Ltd, the garbage hauling contractors for Mangaluru City Corporation.

‘Let’s Honour and Felicitate the Sanitation Staff of Mangaluru City Corporation’ , was a noble thought that became a reality with the joint efforts of Uxcel, the Institute for Excellence, under the leadership of its Director Ms Maria D’costa, and the Roshni Nilaya Alumni Association, School of Social Work Mangaluru. A small project which was to honour just a few, turned out to be a mega event costing over Rs four lakh, as it was decided to honour all : the permanent and the non permanent workers of the Sanitation Department of Mangaluru City Corporation/Anthony Waste Handling Pvt Ltd, Mangaluru.

The response from the public in support of the event was overwhelming. Individuals and Organizations came forward with financial support and goodwill .They appreciated the idea and generously contributed towards the honouring of the Sanitation Staff of the city. Even though earlier one programme was held on 15 December, and since many Sanitation staff didn’t attend due to lack of communication, the organizers decided to honour the rest of the Sanitation staff near Mannagudda, Padau School and couple other locations, with towel and cash- and brought miles of smiles on these hard working people. The entire event was well planned and organized with great enthusiasm , kindness and care for the entire Sanitation Staff of Mangaluru City Corporation. It was memorable experience, carried out to completion by Uxcel-Institute for Excellence and Roshni Alumni Association.

So, the next time you think of those dirty jobs, don’t forget that some of them (like the tireless job of your hardworking garbage collector) are more than just dirty; they are also more dangerous than you might have realized. And thank the Pourakarmikas for keeping your surroundings clean. And it was indeed a kind gesture of Ms Maria D’costa, Uxcel and Roshni Nilaya Alumni to recognize the work of these Pourakarmikas during the Christmas season, which a season of giving and sharing, and honoring them for their service.

The satisfaction is for the doer and the joy is untold. Publicity is not our goal. Lets leave a legacy of sharing and caring for generations and that will better the work of the Sanitation staff , make it cleaner and more hygenic, with their salaries on time which so far is not happening. They thank the authorities for employment.
