Saturday 20th of April,2019, all the enthusiastic Deerwalkers of Squad B were ready for another episode of Deerclean. Deerclean is a community service campaign which is organized by Deerwalk Services with the major objective of maintaining a clean and healthy environment in educational sectors.
Deerwalk Services has been organizing different community and social events with an aim of raising awareness about social responsibilities of an individual and its positive impact on society. Deerclean is one of the events which is being held since 12th May, 2018, with major aim of maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene of school environment.
On Saturday, November 24, 2018, energetic volunteers of Squad C were up bright and early to contribute their efforts for DEERCLEAN—a CSR initiative started this year by Deerwalk wherein a group of Deerwalkers clean a government school with the goal of providing a clean environment for their students.
Deerwalk Services (DWS) started a monthly community service campaign named Deerclean. The first Deerclean was held on May 12, 2018, with the aim to reestablish and restore cleanliness of the school environment. All 4 squads were committed to taking this initiative a step further. Needless to say, squad D eagerly waited for their turn to take part in the Deerclean event scheduled on Saturday, 27th October 2018.
Mop – checked, brush – checked, broom – checked, floor chemical – checked ….. It was quite an excitement at 8: 00 am in the morning as we all gathered for an event that we had never participated before; Deerclean. Deerclean is an community service campaign organized by Deerwalk Services where employees gather as squad wise, visit a government school and help the school clean its environment.
This first event of Deerclean was initiated with managers, CAC, and admin staff with the aim to encourage other Deerwalkers to participate in future.
The date was November 8, 2013, and the venue The Radisson Hotel. It was Deerwalk Annual Fest 2013 which was held in the presence of our Chairman Rudra Pandey and our President Jeff Gasser accompanied by his wife Pamela Gasser.
The Deerwalk Annual Fest is a way of celebrating everything that our company is about. It’s when hidden talents are brought out from amidst the employees of the company to everyone’s merriment and awe. It’s a celebration of success that is Deerwalk.
The Saturday morning of 30th March started early for most Deerwalkers as it was the day for Annual Picnic 2013 organized in Kakani. Everyone had already gathered at the venue by 10AM and after a quick breakfast there was just enough time to explore the area before the games began. The picnic spot and the grounds lay on a thickly forested area owned by Nepal Scouts and one could make out a mountain bike trail that led to Shivapuri National Park and beyond. The picnic also provided an opportunity for the employees to interact with the President of Deerwalk, Jeff Gasser, who had just flown in the day before.
For Deerwalk Cause 2012 Q4, Deerwalk donated books and book-shelves to Sandhya Library which is a public library near Deerwalk complex in Sifal, Kathmandu. The library was established in 2044 BS (1987 AD) by local people and has since then been sustaining itself with the help of a local youth club and donations from supporters. The name ‘Sandhya’ means ‘Evening’ and, as the name suggests, the library opens only during the evenings since most people are away for work during the day.
On Saturday, 1st Dec 2012, fourteen Deerwalk employees and I went to Pokhara to attend Bikram dai’s wedding reception. We were supposed to leave Deerwalk office at 6:30 am. However, some of us had our clocks set to “Nepali time” and therefore had to leave at 7:00 am. The prospect of attending Bikram dai’s wedding and being in Pokhara excited us all. When we crossed Thankot and the road started winding around the hills, I felt a sense of freedom away from the polluted Kathmandu city. Ram dai took us to Naubise where we stopped for breakfast of “masu-chiura”. We continued on the winding road and stopped at Damauli for lunch. We got to the famous lake side of Pokhara to find a hotel and freshen up before going to Bikram dai’s wedding reception at Lekhnath.
