About Muvi Foundation

UPLIFT.

We believe that mere accumulation of knowledge is insufficient. We should be able to imbibe social and economic values and learn to uplift society and the downtrodden.

EMPOWER.

We believe every being on this earth possess enormous power irrespective of their economic status and their gender. We want to help then realize the abilities and potential which they possess, perhaps for the first time. Realization is the foundation for all great achievements because it boosts confidence, energy, and self-assurance.

INSPIRE.

We believe in inspiring people to be their best. People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say. So, we want to be a good example. We want to be able to inspire others to achieve, to succeed and to live.

Plantation Program @ Patia School

Plantation Program – 10th August 2019

Cyclones are very common in Odisha. We are on an average hit by 2 cyclones annually. The last names Cyclone Fani caused us great loss. We were geographically hit at one of the populated districts of Odisha -Puri, famous for Lord Jagannatha Temple. We lost many souls (humans, animals, birds and trees). Cyclone Fani was a great set back for us, financially, economically, and socially. Huge number of trees were uprooted, broken and destroyed. The city looked mundane, devastated and lost.

It rains the entire August in Odisha and it was the best time for us to go for our plantation program. We decided to start with 100 trees and picked up a government school in nearby village. We chose the school as the school had boundaries and the school committee assured us that they would care for the plants post plantation program. Although, we fenced the plants with tree guards after the plantation to ensure protection of the plants from playing kids, stray dogs, cattle or cows, if any.

Picture this – Standing in your backyard admiring your landscaping and being surrounded by the buzz of bees, the hum of hummingbirds and watching the color of butterflies bounce from one flower to the next. This scene, although beautiful, is becoming rare. We can combat this loss in our own backyards, and front yards, by planting native plants. There are so many species of plants that we can add to our landscaping regardless of the size of our property.

Deforestation has led to great climatic changes. Our city is getting hot, hotter day by day. In order to battle climate change, we would need to plant 1 trillion trees globally. Is that even feasible? Yes, I think it probably is; however, there has to be some thought and planning that goes into it—not just haphazardly planting trees where there is space. 

Imagine your normal day: working, going to school, running errands, and coming home only to find that your home has been broken into or destroyed! This is the reality for wildlife all around the globe. Many people focus their attention on faraway places like the Amazon forests and they do not realize that it may be happening right now—in their own backyards! Most homeowners are not aware of all of the wildlife who also call their property home. 

We want to restore our natural ecosystems, not reforest the entire world. In countries that have had massive deforestation, planting millions of trees to reforest those countries is economically, socially and culturally necessary for the country to become sustainable.  Just this week it was reported in the national news, Ethiopia had broken a world record and planted 353 million tree seedlings in 12 hours to help farmers get out of poverty, as well as mitigate the effects of drought, flood, soil erosion, land degradation and climate change. 

Planting trees larger than seedlings and having a maintenance plan in place ensures that trees have a better chance at reaching maturity to provide those numerous environmental benefits.

Over the years, we’ve planted many other native trees and shrubs to add beauty and diversity. We regularly enjoy picnics in the shade of the oaks, take pictures of the butterflies and climb the beautiful trees. Even so, it seems we often fail to appreciate just how much trees add to our everyday lives. 

These are not ‘just trees’. They are living treasures that we are leaving behind for the next generations.

Orphanage Visit

Muvi Foundation, as part of its CSR initiatives, visited Jeevan Jyoti Ashram, a Khandagiri-based orphanage. This orphanage is home to many orphaned and rescued kids from the darker side of our society. It gave us immense pleasure for being able to bring a smile on these children face. There are around 140 kids from 3 years of age to 15 years of age.

Life is not easy for anyone, but how to stand tall against all odds, these children teach us. Our momentary happiness or anxiety are so minuscule in front of these children’s daily hardship. We were amazed to see the spirit, the vigor and the sparkle among the children who are struggling for a decent life yet have dreams in their eyes. The kids performed at many Bollywood numbers and we were awestruck, what talent! We salute them.

As a token of goodwill towards the orphanage, Muvi foundation extended support and donated one month’s grocery, notebooks, floor mats, utensils among the children. We carried fruits, chips and chocolates for the kids which they relished during the magic show conducted by Mr. Sukesh Pattanaik, world renowned magician, who performed a few tricks that enthralled the children with amusement, fun, and laughter.

The children are so much fun. We had an amazing session where we talked about their school, studies, and more. They are all dreaming and dreaming big irrespective of the social adversity. It’s huge learning for everyone especially today’s generation who are according to a study are highly prone to depression because of their haywire lifestyle and social acceptance issues. The children here are dealing with much more than that with a smile and undying spirit.

The event was followed by a lunch. The event was supported by volunteers from the orphanage who have been the pillars of support of the noble institution. Muvians gathered in numbers to support the kids who in return welcomed Muvi Foundation’s team with whole heart and a big smile!!

Muvi Foundation conducted it’s year end program in an Old age home. Muvians visited Shree Krishna Anand Old age home, a Tankapani road based old age home in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.
