    Design for Change Contest

    It is I who is your friend forever
    Won’t you reach out and love me some more?
    Original in Bengali by MamoniMondal, 13 years
  • 3. WHAT WE CHANGED
    The entrance to our former primary school was dull and shabby. There was a small place for plants at one side but none had been planted for years.
    We brightened the entrance by whitewashing a wall and creating a small green patch in front of it
    The school entrance immediately became happy and inviting !
  • 4. When we learnt of the contest, we thought that this would be a good opportunity for us to give something back to ShikshaSadan,the primary school where most of us had studied earlier and where our siblings still go. The idea appealed to the others in the team , so we decided to explore it further.

  • 5. IMAGINE
    We found much that we wanted to do in the school ! But the idea of introducing plants and greenery into the otherwise bare school grounds was the most exciting as all of us are nature enthusiasts .
    This was something that we could do on our own .It would also encourage the students of the school to love and nurture plants, we felt.
  • 6. First we met the principal of ShikshaSadan, Mr. Tewari . We spoke to him about our project. He was very helpful and had several suggestions for us. We decided to take on the task of
    beautifying the school entrance with
    plants.
     
    To raise funds for the project we decided to undertake a door-to-door newspaper drive. Most of the people were very
    kind and gave us lots of
    old newspapers.

  • 7. We sorted out our collection of bottles and newspapers……
    …and sold them to the local kabaddi
    wala…..
    …all 29 kilos of it !

    Then, we prepared the pots and planted shrubs in them.

    We also put plants in old plastic bottles. It was a good way to recycle them, we thought !
  • 12. AND FINALLY...THE WALL!
    ….then we white-washedit.
    We cleaned the wall and the space in front of it…..

  • 13. The next day we transferred all the prepared plants from the Anando centre to the school. We arranged them artistically in the space we had cleared.

  • 14. BEFORE
    AFTER
    What a difference our efforts made!
  • 15. It was a proud moment when all the children came running out to see our handiwork and the principal told them about our project. They all promised to look after the little garden !
  • 16. HOW WE CHANGED
    We have changed after this experience!
    At first we were hesitant to approach strangers and ask them for help. But once we saw the response to our appeals, our fears just vanished!
    We never realised that a little effort can go such a long way. We feel so happy and proud now when we see the little children looking after the plants and the school taking efforts to maintain our garden .It felt good to give back to nature and to our old school !
    And to have everyone praising our efforts , instead of reprimanding us for our antics, has increased our self esteem no end!
