Since 2000, Urja Samiti has been promoting the cause of clean energy and energy conservation. It has also been promoting various other causes of social welfare for weaker and marginal sections of society, such as promotion of kids, young, women as well as elder persons of different field to modern living standard, their awareness, rural awareness drives, cleanliness drives, tree plantations to make healthy environment and other means of service etc.
In the winter season of 2010, Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon had setup Two Night Shelters in Gurgaon. These are located at Bhim Nagar, Railway Road, Gurgaon and in Community Center, Village Kanhai, Sector 44 – 45 road Near HUDA City Centre Metro Station, Gurgaon.
Urja Samiti is pleased to inform you that since the time of inception, Urja Samiti has been assigned to manage and maintain these 2 Night Shelters. Over last 2 years, more than 13,000 homeless and needy persons have been provided a safe and secured place to spend their nights. These people have been provided warm/ comfortable beddings, clean toilets, dinner, breakfast etc. The beneficiaries include homeless and other needy people who were earlier forced to spend their nights at Railway Station, Metro Station, General Bus Stand and Road Sides, under various flyovers in the harsh weather.
Urja Samiti and its various volunteers have been providing continuous service in maintaining various services in these night shelters also. We are in need of funds/ donations for these people as there is paucity of funds on account of the reason that up till now we have not collected any funds from any source and we have incurred expenses upon the maintenance of night shelters at our own. So, we appeal the donor Industrialists/ people to maintain and support these activities continuously by way of providing some funds for this purpose so that more and more such type of projects may be undertaken in the coming years.
