The Road Safety Week observance is an initiative at national Level by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Following the initiative of the Central government, Zeal Education Society celebrated Road Safety Week from 11-16 January 2016 at Narhe campus. The week started with “RUN FOR SAFETY’” rally from Sarasbaug to Shaniwarwada at 7.00 A.M, where more than 300 students and faculties participated and took oath to adhere to the traffic rules.
Problem of traffic is a most critical issue while upgrade the city of Pune to be smart city in the global competition and hence on 13th Jan 2016 student and faculties from zeal education society supported the traffic police & department of traffic in general in coordination, support and dissemination of rules at 50 important signals across the city. This activity was very well appreciated and applauded by public at large.
To address the problem of scarcity of the blood in various hospitals and blood banks to save the
lives of road accident victims, a mega blood donation drive was organized on 14thJan 2016, where due to overwhelming response of the student & faculties, 1057 bottles were collected, probably the highest of its kind. This drive was executed in association with Akshay Blood Bank, Pune.
