Lake Cleaning Activity

It all began when a group of passionate individuals came together with a shared vision: to restore the health and beauty of a nearby lake that had been suffering from pollution and neglect.

Keezhkattalai Lake

Equitas Employees & Volunteers from Guru Nanak College, volunteered for a lake clean-up activity.

Narayanapuram Lake

Equitas Employees & Volunteers from Jerusalem Engineering College, Vinayaka Missions University.

Volunteering for lake cleaning activities has a direct and immediate positive impact on the environment. By removing trash, debris, and pollutants from the lake and its surroundings, volunteers help improve water quality, restore natural habitats, and protect the diverse wildlife that depends on these ecosystems. Additionally, preventing further pollution and maintaining the cleanliness of the lake contributes to the overall health of the surrounding environment.

Distributing Tree Saplings

A Small Step to Save the Environment

In the face of escalating environmental challenges, taking action to protect and conserve our planet is crucial. One impactful way to contribute to environmental preservation is by distributing tree saplings. Distributing tree saplings is a small yet effective step towards saving the environment. Distribution of Tree Saplings was conducted at

Madurai, Salem, Kalapal, Mysore, Jabalpur, Villupuram, Nagaiyakottai, Udaipur, Tirunelveli, Perur, Indore, Inam Mattoor, Challakere, Nashik, Kolhapur, Pallavaram, Amaravati, Nagpur, Raipur and Bhopal

One of the critical factors behind the success of this initiative was the unwavering support and engagement from Volunteers


The journey of receiving recognition for the lake cleaning activity showcases the remarkable impact that a dedicated group of individuals can have on the environment. Through their efforts, they not only restored the health and beauty of a once-polluted lake but also ignited a spark of environmental consciousness within their community and beyond.
