Project Vasan

The word ‘Vasan’ connotes cloth or attire. But for Enactus Dyal Singh College, Vasan is not just a mere piece of clothing, it’s an idea, a thought to bring about a change in the society with a simple step, to recycle, renew and revive.

Through the entrepreneurial and social skills, Project Vasan aims to empower not only poor craftsmen but also unskilled poor people who are willing to work to become economically independent in their own work in the long run. Not only will this project improve the livelihood of the workers but also play a role in saving the environment by focusing on reuse and recycling.
Enactus Dyal Singh College (DSC) conducts collection drives to collect used and old clothes from households. After that the clothes are properly washed and are sent to the craftsmen and blind people with whom the Project is associated, to fabricate them into different kinds and sizes of bags and other handmade items which are then sold in different college fests and market areas.
