They were a bunch of enthusiastic IIT students. They wanted to go beyond the boundaries of classrooms and change the world for the deprived Indian child.
With the help of CRY they formed a collective of students, formed an understanding of the child rights issues in their district and developed an action plan.
A Fact Finding mission to neighborhood villages and the launch of a photo contest within colleges were all it took to rekindle their passion for child rights.
A govt primary school – Adivasi Primary school in the Mirpur Village did not have facilities of drinking water, mid day meal was non functional and had lack of adequate number of teachers.
