“There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child.”
Lack of fundamental resources degrades the quality of life, so does the lack of clothes !! Have you ever experienced the cold without proper sweater/clothes, possibly yes we all have at some point of life. Life is full of tragedies, but it’s fun, isn’t it? But what if we have to survive the whole winter without warm clothes?
Let’s take a different case, here we are writing about the children of govt. school of Sambhariya village, Jaipur, India. Majority of them could not attend classes because they did not have sweaters/woolen clothes. Can you imagine to have a prosperous mental growth of our children without adequate food, shelter and clothes.
Our team is in touch with above said administration from long time, as per the willness to support the cause, we have together identified such 200 cases. Total student strength in this particular school is 800. You will also be surprised to know that many students coming from nearby villages as well by approx 8-10 km walk on daily basis.
We are delighted and very glad to inform that we have successfully distributed 201 sweaters to needy students. We thank schools staff, Sambhariya gram panchayat, Laxmicoin, and individual donors who have given invaluable support in this cause.
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.
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.
