“Ganpati” is the God with whom every auspicious work begins. He is the God of knowledge and removal of obstacles! Ganpati Festival is celebrated with a lot of zest in India and people establish Ganpati Idols at home, worshipping it every day!

Current Scenario:
Earlier, the idols used to be made with clay only but now-a-days, with increased popularity, people have started using different binding materials and chemicals. These idols, when submerged in water, do not dissolve and disturb the marine ecosystem. Such harm to the environment ultimately harms our own well being!

Our Contribution:
Empros International School is doing its own part to save the environment by organizing a workshop on “Making of Eco-friendly Ganpati Idol” for the kids and their parents. This is an exercise for the kids to understand the importance of the festival, the current scenario of damage to the Mother Earth and how they can be a part in saving it!

The Workshop:
Mr. Sunil Hambir, a well known artist, will teach how to make eco-friendly Ganpati Idols with natural clay without using any type of moulds! This technique will help boost the creativity in the kids and also inculcate the habit of preservation of nature. A workshop where both learning and fun is combined!

The Fun is happening at:
Empros International School,
IBMR Campus,
Behind Double Tree Hilton Hotel,
Block C, Chinchwad, Pune.
