Priyanshi patel, young youth of India, inspiring NGOs of the Nation through the creative initiative of Tribal Mart for building sustainable cities and communities with United First.
Talking about her she told –
My name is Priyanshi Patel and I’m 17 years old, studying at Udgam school for children, Ahmedabad. Since childhood I have been enthusiastic to seize every opportunity that crossed my path to create a social impact. Few months back, I along with a friend launched our own social service organisation which is dedicated to providing service to the society. We are devoted to serving smiles through simple acts of spreading love, kindness and happiness. I am fond of various hobbies like tennis, music, painting, etc. I am compassionate towards those underserved and vulnerable. This initiative (Tribal Mart) is going to help me achieve my dream in helping and supporting the underprivileged. I want to leverage my traits and be determined to work selflessly for the society.
This initiative is the first step towards the lofty dream. The first step of building sustainable cities and communities with united first is recently taken and I am inspired to take further actions towards the same”
WHAT IS THE TRIBAL MART INITIATIVE?
United first aims at providing a platform for the tribal communities to comfort their issues of travelling for purchasing basic needs of livelihood at their doorstep by building a tribal mart. The products of the Mart will be provided non financially by the local Organization or NGO associated with us with constructing small mart facilities too initially. We will identify the concerned authority who can repeat the cycle of the Mart by selling the product with the minimal cost confirmed by local authorities and repeat the cycle so that it becomes a permanent asset for the tribal and also local employment can be increased through this mart.
WHY IS THIS INITIATIVE IMPORTANT?
The main advantage of a tribal mart will be that the travelling problems for purchasing basic necessities and needs will be solved. The tribal mart project will be the first initiative towards Atmanirbhar (self-dependent) Tribal. Employment can be increased and facilities of local needs
will be completed. This initiative is an idealistic example of Goal 11: building sustainable cities and communities. Most importantly, it is a cost-effective and financially feasible model. Through this initiative, the development of rural towns will be initiated.
In the activity of Tribal Mart, Many world peace ambassadors, ministers and social activists are joining and supporting the cause. This is the first initiative of one of its kind in India. Founder of United First, Sajan Shah who is the youngest motivational speaker of India says, Young people like Priyanshi are the key example of youth with moral and social responsibilities. Moreover, the entire drive was supported by Sanjay Ghodawat Foundation and the founder of ALPS Edu Service private limited Mansi Shah.
