Ind eng-453-ppt Presentation Transcript

  • 1. ‘ Helping Hands ’ Increasing awareness of the value of education OUR STORY OF CHANGE FROM USHODAYA HIGH SCHOOL, HYDER GUDA ‘X’ ATTAPUR, HYDERABAD. SHEETAL, ABHISHARA, AKSHARA, RAMU, & SAMITHA. MENTOR TEACHER : YASMINE MCMORRIN
  • 2. Step 1: FEEL  Once presented with the idea of Design for Change, we, the students of class 8 thought about some of the issues facing India and its citizens that we could potentially change.
  • 3. Value of Education  We decided to address the problem of a lack of understanding about the importance/value of education by parents and the community.
  • 4. Why the value of education? We wanted to begin the community dialogue on value of education and its importance that every child be given the opportunity to learn regardless of socioeconomic status. We hope that if parents in our communities were aware of the values of education, they would be more likely to invest in their children’s education, than use money for alcohol and tobacco. We also wanted to discourage child labor, by emphasizing the potential gains education can bring to a child.
  • 5. Step 2: IMAGINE  We brainstormed ideas with our mentor teacher on how we could promote the value of education to our communities. Many ideas came out such as:  After school tutoring for students in our neighbor not attending school.  Raising awareness in our communities by going door to door.  Putting on a skit for our community emphasizing education’s importance
  • 6. Why a Skit?  We wanted to become ‘helping hands’ in our community by reaching a large audience at one time to stimulate awareness of the value of education.  We decided to present our skit to the Ushodaya High School classes 1-8. After our fellow students see our skit they would to go out to their personal community network.  Now we have hundreds of children (instead of only students in class 8) creating dialogue, and generating community awareness about the value of education.
  • 7. Step 3: DO  We immediately began to compile ideas for a storyline that would effectively convey the importance of education for all people (rich, poor, boys & girls.)
  • 8. Character List Poor parents: Laxmama (Sheetal), Larmaya (Abhishek) Rich parents: Mahender (Bhim), Janaki (Teja) Poor daughters: Swathi (Mamtha), Sitha (Akshara) Poor son: Ganesh (Ramu) Rich son: Aieat (Krishna) Teacher: Samitha (Samitha) Moneylender: John (Pratap), Abrahm (Amar)
  • 9. Summary of Storyline There are two families, one rich and the other poor. The rich family’s son goes to school daily. The poor family’s 3 children work in the fields. A teacher from the city comes to the community to set up night school for students not attending school in the daytime. Teacher has to convince the parents to send all their children to school as they do not see the value of sending their girl children to school. In the end the poor family’s children help the family not be swindled by corrupt moneylenders, due to the lessons they learned at school. (The moneylenders have a business relationship with the rich family).
  • 10. Step 4: SHARE Pictures from our ‘Helping Hands’ Skit
  • 11. How we were ‘Changed’  We thought we were going to only advocate for education awareness in our communities to create positive change. However, in the process of working together, brainstorming, and coming up with a solution we were ‘changed’.  We learned that no matter how large any problem is we have the power to act and be a part of a solution. We realize that it’s up to us to be the change we want to see in the world!
