The competition strives to generate interest as well as a sense of pride among the children of Pune about their own city.
The event is a first of a kind, that Pune has never seen before.
The event also seeks to generate funds through a special CSR + Charity program for the needy schools of the city.
I Love Pune shall be an annual event that will evolve to be one of the biggest events that the city has ever seen.

Why I Love Pune?

  • Our children study all kinds of subjects from science to geography to languages.
  • They take part in sports and extra-curricular activities.
  • Now, it's time for them to take a healthy interest in their own city to enhance their knowledge of the city and thus enhancing pride about the city.
  • Through the spirit of competition

Generating CSR & Charity

  • The event seeks not only to promote Pune, through a CSR approach; but also to generate funds for needy school-children.
  • Thus participants are not just doing CSR, but also doing direct charity.
  • This is because the funds raised will be donated to needy schools by a panel set up for this purpose
  • This panel shall be drawn from among the school principals
  • Each child who participates in the contest will be asked to pay Rs 10/- (Rupees ten only) as entry fee.
  • For every entry thus received, Puma Patrol shall contribute five times this amount, viz. Rs. 50/-, to a maximum of Rs. 300,000/-
  • Thus Rs. 60/- shall be received per entry
  • This amount shall be distributed to needy school(s) as per the plan of the panel of principals

Generating CSR & Charity

  • The event shall commence from Children's Day or thereabouts, say 17 November, 2014
  • Distribution of registration forms shall commence prior to that date
  • The event will run for about 40 days.
  • Schools may take part right through to the end of December, 2014; based on their individual calendars
  • The results will be announced on 26th January, 2015
