Joining hands with Project Parivartan – Enactus India
India ranks 7 in the world with more than 10 million pets in the country With this increasing pet population and insufficient funds, being able to raise and maintain good health of pets has been a struggle for animal welfare groups and NGOs. Despite of having set several examples of loyalty, dogs are often kicked and shooed by people. However, as a result of awareness programs and hard work done by NGOs and similar groups, there is considerable increase in rate of pet adoption in India. On an average 600,000 pets are adopted every year.
With the zeal to bring a difference in the mindset of today’s society, more and more youngsters are joining hands with NGOs and animal welfare groups. Such is a wonderful project started by Enactus students of Motilal Nehru College of Delhi University. Students of this college have started a social initiative project called PARIVARTAN where their mission is to not only empower the women force but also give a healthier life to stray dogs.
By teaching the art of making dog collars, leashes and cookies to the poor underprivileged women who live at Sanjay Gandhi Centre, Chankyapuri, New Delhi these students are doing an exceptional work of making these women financially independent and eventually growing a seed of entrepreneur in them. The dog collars and leashes are sold in the market by the name Be Desi. While the profits generated from selling these hand-made products shall primarily go to those women, a part of it shall be used in sterilization and vaccination of stray dogs.
Woofbox is a monthly subscription based dog-box service that has 4 to 5 goodies in it. From treats to collars, Woofbox has the best you would need while raising your furry friend. The whole idea of coming up with Woofbox was the determination to help pet-owners save time in going to a brick-and-mortar pet-store and find a one-stop solution to their pet’s needs.
We have eternal love for pets and realise how much it takes to come up with an initiative like project PARIVARTAN. Dog collars made by these women are strong, colourful, attractive and customized. Woofbox has joined hands with team Parivartan to bring in some change, to do some good.
