Mission & Vision of TREMORS,
To address some of the core issues that are hampering the balanced development of the society, Tremors club was formed by the students and it was made official on Feb 17th 2010.
This club, a student initiative, was started for making Salem, a better place to live in.
The main objective of the club is to address the environmental and some of the most important socio-economic problems which are hampering the overall growth of our city by conducting activities such as tree plantations, photo exhibitions, education for all, awareness camps, etc.
The events and activities that are taken up by our club go beyond creating awareness to bring in changes in the society that we live in. We aim to go beyond being a club and become a youth movement.
So far we have considered earth as our mother and got everything from her, but at least from now on let us consider her as our daughter and give her back everything!!
