Posted by MMPS on Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

It's not every day that a class VI student gets an invitation from Sino-Forest Applied Research Centre, Hong Kong Baptist University to present a paper in 'International Conference on Solid Wastes 2015: Knowledge Transfer for Sustainable Resource Management. Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation (MMCF) was created by an act of Dan to honour recognition of works of permanent value rendered to society. MMCF epitomizes the commitment to 'pursuit of excellence'. It serves as a 'temple of inspiration' for future generations and further continues the model of sustainability that is 'Eternal Mewar'. 'Dan' has been at the root of the system of custodianship at Mewar which remains the guiding essence of the Foundation. This is evident from the Toran Dwar being chosen as its symbol - an elegant edifice created to mark remarkable instance of charity being accorded in the past. Scholarships and Financial Assistance from MMCF are awarded to students at every level of education, from primary school to post-graduate research scholars. In many cases, had it not been for the intervention of the trust, the individual students' academic career would have come to a halt. The numbers can range from a single scholarship granted to one student to cover their entire course of graduate studies or, to a number of students to help subsidies school / college fees. The trust has also assisted and subsidized the presentation of research papers at symposia both in India, and across the globe. MMCF is proud to announce financial assistance for Mr. Harsh Chhangani student of Class VI of Maharana Mewar Public School, Udaipur who got an invitation from Sino-Forest Applied Research Centre, Hong Kong Baptist University to present a paper in 'International Conference on Solid Wastes 2015: Knowledge Transfer for Sustainable Resource Management (ICSWHK2015)'. The conference will be held at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong from 19th to 23rd May 2015. The title of his paper is 'Solid Waste Management Programs for Schools: Ideas and Execution' The purpose of this paper is to suggest ideas on a solid waste management programs for schools and one should develop the value of caring for the Earth is to ensure that they are taught the right attitude and behavior towards the waste they generate. The students must understand and internalize the concept that "everything must go somewhere" and that waste is a resource in the wrong place. Vice-versa, a resource is waste in the right place. An attempt has also been made to find what are the factors that should be considered in designing a Solid Waste Management Program in schools? Although the basic principles of solid waste management are common, different settings often require for schools. Schools, by nature, serve as the most ideal models for correct and proper behavior and attitude development, and are composed of young children who are dynamic. MMCF has taken an initiative to encourage and giving financial assistance for the paper presentation to Mr. Harsh Chhangani to accelerate his knowledge, talent and to explore his vision for more futuristic approach.
