Dear students,


Let us strengthen people at grass root level in Mumbai and Maharashtra to protect and defend themselves in manmade and natural disasters like the recent devastating flood of 26th, 27th,and 28th July. Mumbai is highly prone to many kinds of manmade and natural disasters. The recent flood in Mumbai and Maharashtra is not the end of occurrence of such disasters. The community elements including students, teachers, women, disabled and common people have to be aware, alert and prepared at individual and family level to face such catastrophes in future. The people do not have to be fully Administration and Government centric for their safety and survival. Let us introspect the need and brain storm to find out ways and means to educate and train common people who are the first victims of these disasters.

SARITSA FOUNDATION educates, trains and inspires common people to be prepared to protect themselves from killer disasters by its team of experts
at the “Door Step” of people by our “Mobile University”. SARITSA FOUNDATION has educated and trained 95000 people in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana. Participate in this Elocution competition and contribute for well being of the community. 
The subject of the Elocution competition is: -  “Are you prepared to protect and save yourself and your family from manmade and natural disasters in Mumbai?. If no, is there a necessity to prepare community at individual level to protect from strikes of disasters if so, how it can be done”.
