Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) in Noida and Noida Apparel Export Cluster have jointly organised 'As a Responsible Citizen Initiative on awareness of Skill Development, Swacch Bharat Abhiyan and Road Safety'. The aim of launching the campaign is to educate people about cleanliness and sanitation under the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan.

The initiative also aims to organise road safety programmes through road safety march and regulation of traffic and to make aware the disadvantaged and unemployed youth about job oriented skill based training and huge opportunities in apparel sector.

The campaign included pledging ceremony by around 200 students of ATDC for Swacch Bharat Abhiyan & Road Safety followed by road safety march for the same. ATDC students regulated traffic in the presence of traffic police and also educated vehicle drivers to follow traffic rules. They participated in cleaning Sector 12/22 and performed Nukkad Natak for the skill training awareness. The participants were spotted wearing T-shirts with the ATDC logo, sponsored by Noida Apparel Export Cluster.

Dr Mahesh Sharma, minister of tourism and culture Government of India said, "I wish you all the best wishes and congratulations that all of you have followed your social responsibility on Clean India Campaign and Road Safety Campaign and organised this programme for promoting them. All of you are giving your contribution as a youth power in this crusade."

Simultaneously, he thanked Lalit Thukral, chairman, NAEC & ATDC Convener, UP state, for the successful participation of ATDC in the cleanliness drive of the Prime Minister and said that as a social worker, he has been supporting these social problems, whether serious or small.

He said, "Today when these problems have spread all over the society, through these small efforts only can we achieve success and make our city and country - clean and safe. Move one step forward and the world will follow itself."

Dr Darlie Koshy - director general & CEO, ATDC said, "We at ATDC, have imparted skills to nearly 2 Lakh candidates under the ISDS, MOT, GOI, and have transformed lives by providing gainful employment to youth, and disadvantaged section of the society. This event reflected our resolve of skilling the youth, and making them responsible citizens ready for the future."

ATDC is playing a key role in evangelising skills like a religion in India and making the youth a job-ready and professional workforce through 'Skill Excellence', so that, they can make India a manufacturing hub in order to fulfil PM's vision of 'Make in India'.

Speaking on the occasion, Thukral said, "With our own persistent activities, we have to make these causes widespread and successful and move forward with them. The oath that was sworn today should not only be in name and our head, we should act on it and try to be responsible citizens. Whether around our workplaces, home or anywhere, we should always give our best in maintaining cleanliness and regulating traffic."

The event witnessed participation from a huge number of the city’s youth. The spectators excitedly cheered up for the participants and boosted up their energy. Everything was well coordinated by the Noida Police and the volunteers. Appreciation from the audience marked a successful end to the event. (KD)
