Spreading Awareness About Education

 


    

On 25th of may 2011, we all assembled at in Government Patel School, N.S.Palya, BTM 2nd Stage Bannerghatta Road. We started at 5.30 p.m  ended at 8 p.m. There were students from Christ, St.Joseph’s, SSMRV, Jain colleges, government school students, AIESEC, artists, musicians, IT professional, which means we all were from different backgrounds, but heading towards 1 goal - to abolish child labour and attract kids towards education.

As it was planned for the campaign to take off at 5.30p.m from the govt Patel school we all assembled there and started our campaign which was accompanied by the press reporters from times group, surana and the like.






 It was another area, another day to enlighten the kids about the importance of education and the ways to receive it. We were 50 of us who joined hands together for the cause and split ourselves in 2 groups (25 in each) and targeted nearly 300 houses. We went in different directions in-order to cover the complete place and enlighten the parents and kids about the importance of school and education.



But in the way to reach our goal, we had to face obstacles like heavy rain, water puddles, but still these obstacles did not stop us from achieving our goal. We walked in the rain conveying our message. That by itself portrays the sheer dedication we had towards our goal. It is rightly said that "The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination." And each one of us present were so dedicated towards the goal that nothing could stop us


We went through the various lanes , house to house, and saw great response from the people. They came forward to know about the importance of education, ways to send children to school and so on, which was really a big achievement for us.
At the end we all again gathered at the govt school and thanked each one who was part of the campaign and helped to run it successfully. We took photos, cheered our enthusiasm towards the goal and exchanged our  views about the campaign and ended our campaign

And myself Priyanka learnt a lot from this campaign , as it is rightly said "The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win." It was the small effort made by us but the learning you get is not small. As it is again said “There is no end to learning".
