DFC at YMCA, Chennai <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Feel </li></ul><ul><li>Imagine </li></ul><ul><li>Do </li></ul>
INTRODUCTION When the idea of DFC was introduced to the kids at YMCA, they came up with many problems they faced in every day scenario. Some of them were rain water logging in the YMCA premises, heavy school bags, dumping of garbage by the neighborhood inside YMCA etc. When asked the students which problem was of the highest priority, they had mentioned about the garbage disposal problem.
FEEL The domestic waste which was thrown into the YMCA campus by the surrounding neighborhood had immense effect on the children , as they were the ones who were asked to clean the garbage when any higher official was to visit. This process had caused a lot of them itching and fungal diseases. Even otherwise the garbage had always served as a breeding ground for mosquitoes and unknown infections. So, with the help of the DFC program the children decided to put an end to this.
IMAGINE <ul><li>Eventually the children started to come up with various solutions to stop the people from throwing their garbage into YMCA. Out of the many suggestions given by the kids, one optimum solution was chosen. Which was that they could go door by door and ask the people not to do so by telling them the ill effects of dumping their domestic waste into YMCA. </li></ul>
DO <ul><li>As for the implementation, the permission was obtained from the authorities of YMCA and the kids were taken to the surrounding places accompanied by the volunteers , where they went door by door and explained to the people about the problem they’d been facing. The public were inspired by the kids and they promised not to dump anymore garbage into YMCA and also spread it to others who intended to do it. </li></ul>
