Summer Camp Barana
Jhali Ji ka Barana is a small village situated approximately 60 kms from Kota district. It has a population of over 10,000 with most of the basic facilities required to sustain a village. People here are very responsive and active as they take part in the activities enthusiastically concerning their villages. Miitti adopted Barana village for pilot ideal village project and organised a summer camp. The enthusiasm of the students from the beginning was at its peak, which only kept on growing in the days which followed. The morning session started with school prayer. As planned on introducing new sports in the village, the first day saw the introduction to Kabaddi for boys and Kho-Kho for girls.Under education, students were divided into groups of 6-8 students each with each team allotted projects for each day and an overall project which had to be presented on the concluding day.
Introduction to computers was also included to give students a glimpse of computer technology and its usage. On day to day account, students were asked to complete different projects enlisted in the NCERT syllabus which are generally excluded from their classroom curriculum. These included various arts and crafts projects and discussions on topics like importance of education. Evening sessions were pleasant, where students sat and were helped with their career choices and counseled for doubts regarding their education. Everybody shared their future plans and how they were going to execute that. Though the event concluded on the 5th day, with students performing what they had done in the summer camps, it paved our way to tread the development path for the village. Our quest for tackling the bigger problems started.
To provide a better guidance to students of rural India towards suitable career opportunities, Miitti organised a career counselling event at keshavroy patan,Bundi, Rajasthan during winter vacations.
This event ‘Next Step’ was well appreciated among the students (400 out of which 180 girls has been participated enthusiastically) as well as the teachers with different streams. Few teachers shown their request to conduct the similar kind of event in their respective school. Expectation from the students and the teachers was very diverse and it will be our ‘MIITTI’ team’s pleasure to consider and conduct similar events in future.
