STEP – 1 FEEL <ul><li>There are many problems faced by persons in India but the one that troubled us the most is the problem of wastage of things as well as natural resources. </li></ul><ul><li>We saw many children wasting stationary items, eatables and other useful things without consuming them properly. </li></ul><ul><li>We saw many persons leaving the taps running on , electrical appliances switched on after use. </li></ul>
STEP - 2 IMAGINE <ul><li>We discussed the same with our mentor teacher and many ideas came out such as </li></ul><ul><li>Creating awareness among our school children as well as others in our surroundings </li></ul><ul><li>Asking all to give their surplus things which are not used by them like books, bags, old clothes, stationary items etc. to poor children to bring happiness in their life. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a feeling of belongingness among children for society. </li></ul>
STEP - 3 DO <ul><li>To achieve our goal we planned in a systematic way under the guidance of our mentor teacher </li></ul><ul><li>First of all in the morning assembly we took an oath to consume each and every thing without wasting anything. . </li></ul><ul><li>Many children presented their views through paintings on the same topic as art is the best way to touch the heart of a person. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We prepared pamphlets and charts to create awareness in all and pasted them in all important places like reception, office, faculty room, classrooms etc of our school and neighbourhood. </li></ul><ul><li>We made banners and campaigned out of the school. </li></ul><ul><li>We presented many poems, speech and a play to create a feeling in all. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We tried our best to make children, neighbours, parents and others aware of the proper usage of electricity, water, fuel etc. and gave the tips to conserve the resources. </li></ul><ul><li>We invited our teachers to give us some tips to utilize the things properly and carefully. </li></ul><ul><li>We fixed a box for the collection of small pencils, erasers, extra pens etc. and asked the children to put such types of things in it so that they could be donated to the needy children. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We chose a village named KAILASHPUR near Sonepat and campaigned there to utilize the things. We gathered in a government school and showed them a naatak through which we guided the villagers to use peels of vegetables and fruits, used tea leaves to make compost, to make baskets with crushed paper and mud and to sell them in market, to use cow dung to make gobar gas etc. We told them not to waste left over food. We went door to door to create awareness among them. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We donated old clothes in a lepers home (kushtha ashram) and stationary items, bags etc. in government schools. </li></ul>2.10.2010 1.10.2010
A MIRACLE CHANGE <ul><li>We are very happy to feel that we have done something for others in society and brought happiness in their lives. We are thankful to God who supported us invisibly. Our special thanks to our Principal Sir Mr. V.K.Mittal to encourage us by providing facilities and to create such a wonderful environment. Though we wanted to bring a change in others lives, but a fabulous change we found in ourselves. We learnt value of sharing ,caring and teamwork as we were supported by countless numbers of hands to make the mission a success. We promise to follow this throughout our life. </li></ul>

Parents’ views <ul><li>My son Raghav has become very conscious regarding the limited use of electricity and now he avoids wastage of food also. </li></ul><ul><li>Ajay Kumar </li></ul><ul><li>My both kids participated in the programme ‘Joy of Giving Week’ and to my surprise, I have noticed a great change in my kids towards conservation of energy and water. The other day my son Paritosh advised me to collect the waste water of R.O. and utilize it for watering plants. Really such programmes in schools will certainly revolutionize the society. I congratulate the team for its efforts. </li></ul><ul><li>Geeta Dahiya </li></ul>
<ul><li>Consume but do not waste campaign initiated during joy of giving week is really awakening and enlightening. It has inculcated a feeling of responsibility and belongingness among students. They themselves have learnt and taught the society to consume the things to the fullest. Their endevour is really praiseworthy and they deserve our appreciation and congratulations for this noble beginning. </li></ul><ul><li>Principal Mittal V.K. </li></ul>
<ul><li>It is my immense pleasure to note down that the children have become aware of the proper usage of things, natural resources and energy. We’ll continue it forever. A permanent box has been fixed in the school for the spare things to be put by the children which would be given to needy children regularly. I appreciate the outstanding performance, dedication and hard work of the team which was able to join together a good number of students and impacted thousands of people. </li></ul><ul><li>Mentor teacher Ruchi Aggarwal </li></ul>
