Awareness about important & judicious use of water

Starting with a song to  create a amiable environment among the children and the facilitators.
The workshop consisted of three main activities. They are:
1)Water relay game - Through this game children were made aware of the everyday use of water directly and indirectly in our daily lives. They gave eye opening facts about the quantity of water used for making simple everyday things like shoes, chocolates, eggs and clothes. 
2)Water Man - Children were divided into groups of two, with each group getting a sheet containing a human body diagram. They were asked to guess the water percentage present in each organ. The answers were revealed through a fun dart game and this helped to create a innovative environment among the children. Further it kept them engaged in the workshop. 
3)Earth water experiment - A miniature version of the earths water was represented through buckets and the  distribution of them was shown. This showed the importance of drinking water which constituted a single drop. Through this activity children were able to know how much drinkable water was  available with them as many of them were unaware of the actual quality. 
At the end of the workshop the children came to know about the importance of water and the scarcity of it. A thanks note was given to Yuva for their participation and coordination.

The mounting waste challenge

India is now among the top 10 countries generating the highest amount of municipal solid waste (MSW), primarily due to growing urbanisation and high levels of consumption, says a report by The World Bank. With around 50% of the country’s population projected to be living in urban areas by 2050, the volume of waste generation is projected to grow by 5% every year.

To spread awareness on waste & pollution we conducted activity in Ambujwadi slum area, this activity initiated by children,

Children are the future of our Nation!!  The little warrior's of Ambujwadi celebrated the HABITAT MONTH by participating in a poster competition organized by the field work students of College of social work Nirmala Niketan on the theme 'Amchi Malvani Sundhar Malvani.

They used waste matter from their surroundings and made posters sending across a strong message against pollution of water bodies and beaches and their natural habitat. They highlighted the impact of garbage and pollution on inhabitants of Ambujwadi. Each poster is a silent prayer by the children of Ambujwadi for a better,  cleaner and greener habitat for a safer and brighter future.
