World Population Day 2013
On the occasion of World Population Day 2013, SCEAD Foundation India organised a 1 kilometre walkathon that began in Jayanagar 7th Block. A total of 400 students from City College, Bangalore International Academy and AIESEC Bangalore, as well as interns from Croatia, Poland, China, Egypt and Turkey, took part in this campaign to raise awareness about over-population. After the walkathon, over fifty students visited a nearby slum to distribute red awareness cards to the slums' inhabitants. These cards contained advice written in Kannada and informed people on how to reduce population. These cards were distributed to over 500 homes with the aim of increasing awareness on the importance of family planning and smaller family sizes. The campaign was a success, thanks to the support of partners BIA and AIESEC Bangalore.
