Our Projects


As part of its commitment to support the education of children in slum areas, Hyve India Private Limited partnered with Dream a Difference to organise the second edition of Recycle for Education initiative. Like in the first edition, this involved recycling waste paper to make notebooks and eco-friendly plantable seed pens, which were then donated to underprivileged children.

The initiative kicked off with collection drives across select urban areas in Delhi-NCR by setting up collection kiosks. The residents were explained about the initiative and encouraged to donate their household waste papers like newspapers, card boxes, magazines, etc. The initiative found tremendous support as several residents contributed for the noble cause.

All the waste paper collected was then recycled and produced 12,000 notebooks and 6,000 pens, which are equivalent to over 400 trees saved. The notebooks and pens were then bundled into kits with each kit having 10 notebooks and 5 pens per student. These were then distributed for free to 1200 school children at Greater Noida.

Impact of the CSR activity on the community and environment:

  • Saved over 400 trees, equivalent to 70,000 kW-H of energy

  • Saved 600,000 litres of water

  • Saved 80 cubic meters of landfill space

  • Prevented 18,000 kgs of CO2 emissions

  • 1,200 students supported for annual stationery requirement

  • Eco-friendly Notebooks and Pens made from recycled papers

  • Seed Pens that turn into a sapling when sown

We at Dream a Difference are dedicated to support children for their education.

As part of our commitment, we provided assistance to four girls: Moti (Class 10th), Naina (Class 4th), Neha (Class 2nd) and Soni (Class LKG) whose family was suffering with financial crisis and unable to pay their school fees.

Dream a Difference donated to pay their pending dues and school fees for next year as well.

We hope that these children are able to carry on their learning and realise their potential. Wishing them all the best for their future.

Children from slum localities in India find themselves with very limited resources to support their education. To address a part of this problem, Hyve India Private Limited, a leader in exhibitions and conferences, joined hands with Dream a Difference NGO as part of their CSR initiative to help provide notebooks and pens to underprivileged children. The initiative called as “Recycle for Education” utilized recycled papers to produce thousands of notebooks and pens which were then distributed, thereby also contributing to environmental sustainability.

The initiative started with an extensive collection drive across the National Capital Region of Delhi, inviting and encouraging the resident urban population to donate their household waste paper like newspapers, magazines, old books, cardboard, corrugated packaging, print waste, etc. Collection kiosks were set up at multiple locations and the initiative received an overwhelming response with a large number of people donating their paper waste for this noble cause.

Collections from the campaign were then brought together to a warehouse, where this paper waste was sorted, categorized and subsequently sent to a warehouse for preparing rolls of recycled paper, which was then utilized to produce 20,000 notebooks and 10,000 eco-friendly plant-able seed pens. These were distributed to children at slum localities in Delhi-NCR, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh via orphanages and child-care partners. Children were encouraged to sow the pens after use and nurture them to witness the growth of the seeds into plants.

The initiative has saved approximately 700 trees, 1 million liters of water, 140 cubic meters of landfill space and prevented environment from 30,000 kg of carbon emissions.

Statistics on the distributed items, total beneficiaries and area targeted:

  • Targeted study centers and orphanages: Eleven (11)

  • Targeted beneficiaries: One thousand (1,000)

  • Total production from recycled papers: Twenty thousand (20,000) notebooks and Ten thousand (10,000) pens

  • Distribution per beneficiary: One (1) kit had Twenty (20) notebooks and Ten (10) pens

Impact of CSR Activity on Community and Environment:

  • Saved over 700 trees, equivalent to 1.6 lakh kW-H of energy

  • Saved 1 million liters of water

  • Saved 140 cubic meters of landfill space

  • Prevented 30,000 kgs of CO2 emissions
