Welcome to the world of helping people who are in need. An absolute win for humanity. This little demonstration of kindness can have a tremendous effect on another person’s life. The “Wall of Kindness” initiative in Namma Bengaluru.
An initiative started in the city by the Rotary Club Basaveshwaranagar along with Suresh Kumar – the MLA of Rajajinagar.
This initiative provides an opportunity for the residents to donate things that you don’t need so that the people who are really in need of them can pick it up from this place without any hesitation.
Things can be clothes, utensils, blankets, footwear, stationery, umbrellas. Also, anything which can be useful by all means to the needy.
With this in mind, the MLA of Rajajinagar requested the residents to donate used and excess things to the ones who need it. Addressing the media he also said “What makes me happy is that this initiative has completed eight days and is running successfully. But my request to the donors is not to bring any damaged items“.
Wall of Kindness in Bengaluru was inaugurated a week back. The wall is on the roadside with the seven feet high and nine feet wide rack with 25 compartments.
The Idea Behind This Initiative – “Wall of Kindness” in Namma Bengaluru.
During the inauguration of Wall of Kindness, “Rajajinagar MLA appreciated the Rotary of Basaveshwaranagar for this unique initiative. “I happened to see a similar project in Mysuru a few years ago. I wanted to have such a facility in Bengaluru too. Also, I am very happy that it finally happened here,’’ said Suresh Kumar.
In addition to this, Sudhir Navale of Rotary Basaveshwaranagar said, “This idea occurred to us while discussing on how we can help the needy. Further, he also said that the response from the residents is gaining momentum and many people are coming forward to give away products that they no longer need.
The main motto of this initiative is
If you don’t need it, leave it, if you need it, take it.
This Brilliant Initiative
This initiative was first started in Iran as a resident-driven project and has now discovered its way in India. Also been really prominent in different parts of the nation like Rajasthan, Bhopal, and Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad. Mysore was the first city to get the ‘Wall of Kindness’ in Karnataka.
