How, little things can add to someone’s happiness so easily!
Sometimes its good to look into someone else’s necessity to work on and about. Things like this not only broadens our mind towards community but also opens up fields for us. It helps us in discovering the boundaries of our capabilities. Such an effort was made by an N.G.O. named, Aarambh, that cannot be less recognized.
This N.G.O. was formed to focus on families who do not have a very high social standing, in urban slum and rural areas. Now they wanted to help the students who are not as privileged, with basic facilities, in order for them to be more comfortable at school.
They analyzed and figured out that most of the schools in Indian rural areas lack to solve these two problems:
- Firstly, the schools did not have proper desks, which led to poor eyesight and a hunched back that led to bad posture and poor handwriting;
- Secondly, the students did not have proper bags to carry and keep books.
This is a problem that not many of us would even be able to figure out as much as we would be able to comment on the quality of education or the outer infrastructure. But, Aarambh not only recognized this as a problem, but also came up with a solution to this problem. The solution would tackle both the problems at one go.
To make the portable desks they used cartons which are economical and easily available. They then used a pre-set stencil design, which when cut and folded would even serve as a school bag. The idea did turn as “WOW!”.
Not only was the idea innovative and creative, it also served the society in the best possible way.
This effort is an inspiration to all of us. This adds to how we all should put up our effort and team up to solve these basic problems in our society, to make our life better.
