In a first of a kind motorcycle rally organised by Classic Marble Company (CMC), architects from across Maharashtra rode from Mumbai to Silvassa in a bid to raise funds for the education of girl children. The rally flagged off from CMC’s head-office located in Bhandup on 12th Feb at 7:00AM and terminated at the company’s exquisite 9th Avenue Gallery in Silvassa at 11:30AM. The activity brought together like-minded individuals who love to take the open roads on two-wheels. For every architect participating in the rally, CMC donated an undisclosed amount for funding the education of 160 girls from the Balwatika Society located in Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Joining the architects on the ride, a fleet of Indian Motorcycle Riders too cruised along as a show of support towards the cause.
The funds raised will be utilised towards building a brand new, fully equipped computer lab for the girls. A dedicated faculty will train them in the basics of computer learning to skill them for possible employment opportunities.
“Education is close to our hearts at CMC and we wish to help as many children as we can to receive it. Our initiative aims to empower girls with a skill set which will help them in bettering their employment opportunities when they step into the job market. We would love to absorb any potential candidates from amongst these girls who may display interest in the profession. For the architects and riders who joined us in this initiative, we thank them wholeheartedly for it,” says Mr Amit Shah, Managing Director, CMC.
As part of the event, architects were offered a tour of CMC’s exquisite 9th Avenue Gallery and introduced them to some of the awe inspiring, limited edition stones at the venue.
