HANDFUL OF GRAINS
In the year 2013, the Rotaract Club of N.M. College launched a project called "Handful of Grains"; with the aim of eradicating hunger and malnutrition by providingfood grains and other essential supplies to the underprivileged, needy communities of the society. This legacy project, going on since the past 7 years, increasing its impact every year, set a new mark this year. On 21st March 2021, our team succesfully distributed a total of 3200 kgs of supplies containing ration kits and stationery supplies which benefited 120 families and 250 children. The project successfully communicates the message that even the smallest contributions can help feed a family, educate a child, or simply bring a smile to someone's face. The team intends to continue making a difference in the lives of those in need in the coming years.
As the year starts so does the celebration, but not all celebrations are with parties or champagne.Some of these begin with celebrating the values learnt round the year and not repeating the mistakes others made.

It is released each year on the Installation day in the presence of many dignitaries. Cheers has inputs right from the DRR to a page curator that's how it celebrates the diverse interpretations of the same feeling.

PROJECT LIGHT A BLUB
At RCNM we have always believed in giving back to the society in any way that we are able to and, fortunately for us, Light A Bulb is one of the events that make it possible. LAB is a fundraiser event that has made it possible for us to provide light bulbs and solar panels to two villages near Maharashtra that lacked these necessary amenities before and other than that we have also, fortunately, been able to maintain these to full capacity in these years by bearing the repairing and maintenance costs of the same. LAB is more than just an event for us; it is an opportunity for us to experience the grass-root issues that exist in our society, to learn how privileged we are, and to ignite a spark of change among our members so that they can become the future drivers of evolution.
