Project – Donation of cow Dung Log making machine to Rajesh Kumar & family at Amwan Village near Bodh Gaya.
Innovative machine for making cow dung logs that is as strong as wood and has many uses, especially as Eco-friendly firewood for tandur, Havan, Yagya-Pooja, rituals, criminology, etc. A combination of dung and straw is fed into the hopper of the machine. A screw mechanism has been provided in the machine, which helps in mixing raw materials thoroughly, compressing them, and extruding them out. By using different sizes of dice, logs of different shapes and sizes can be made easily. Produced logs are then put under the sunlight to dry out the moisture inside them, making them hard and sturdy. This cow dung log is slightly hollow to allow the passage of oxygen and therefore, highly combustible.
It was inaugurated by PDC Ritu Dalmia & PDC Mridula Narayan. PP Ragini Bhadani, Sec. Vimmi Lohani, Treasurer Abha Ji, Rakhi Bhadani, Sarika, Vinita Khaitan, and P. Shubhra Gupta was present during the project.

O- Support to Orphanage girl on 23rd April 2021
Project details – Donation of ‘Diya making Machine’ & Saree to a physically handicapped girl on her marriage.
Inner Wheel Gaya donated a Diya-making machine to a physically handicapped girl who can’t walk ‘Rubi’ in our adopted village Badki Takiya 20 km away from Gaya. This Diya-making machine is gifted to her in her marriage so that she can earn and support her family. This Eco-friendly Diya is made out of cow dung which has its religious importance and other recent scientifically proven benefits and it is also very different from the clay Diya. When cow dung Diya is lit, the lamp catches fire, and the resultant smoke from it acts as a mosquito and insect repellant, the remaining ash is used as vibhuti (holy ash), and can also be used as an anti-fungicide for plants.
These days (Panchagavya diya‘s ) have the power to cleanse the environment and the energies it emits can make a difference to your aura and mood too. These are really powerful tools in our hands, provided we accept and learn to include them in our day-to-day lives.

Their Goal- Hope
Category E- under Environment
They have launched a campaign to conserve the precious treasures of nature, water, which is very much needed today. Water conservation is the demand today.
Keeping in view the rainwater harvesting system, restoration, recycling under Conservation of Water Bodies, Innerwheel Club Gaya conducted rooftop Rain Water Harvesting Rotary Campus inaugurated by Dr. Sheelaranjan K. Kar Kamlo, Chairman, District 325. Rooftop rainwater harvest filters can be piped down to deposit the roof water that is wasted on the roof of the building into a large tank or underground tank so that groundwater level can be recharged and stored in borewells, tube wells, or wells. Rainwater TDS is 4.10 pm. It is useful in drinking, eating, bathing, and gardens. With 0% hardness, washing machines and geysers do not have staining, the age of the machine increases.
This is a one-time investment with no need for water and electricity.
It is very easy to install, use and maintain. About 20,000 liters of water can be saved in 1 hour of rain from a roof of 1000 square feet. It should be mandatory in every house. This technology should be made officially mandatory as it is only by protecting the water that the security of our country can be ensured.
