District 3012 set up a Rotary stall at the Ramlila and Dushera Mela in Ghaziabad. Held annually as part of the Navratri festival this 11-day event attracts over 10 lakh people from across the region. Rotarians from across the district engaged in creating awareness about Rotary International to help enhance its public image. Another important purpose of the event was to draw women and young individuals to Rotary.
The stall hosted a variety of games for children. Medical and eye checkup camps were also conducted at the stall on all the days. Around 3,500 eye screening, 3,300 blood tests, 5,000 sugar tests and 8,000 oral health check-ups were conducted. Spectacles were distributed to 1,100 beneficiaries at the stall. Over 60,000 people visited the Rotary stall daily totalling up to seven lakh people over the 11 days. At the end of the event 20 new members were inducted in different clubs in the district. The total cost of the project was ₹12 lakh.
