 Let me share an interesting act done by children

SMS Aflatoun – Social & financial education program for school children

Vidyamandir Digvade, Panhala, Kolhapur is one of those schools surrounded by trees. As school covered with trees, mosquitoes started to generate in school premises as well as in classrooms. Usually students were interrupted by mosquitoes during the course of learning. One day, the Aflatoun club came to discuss the issue of ‘breeding mosquitoes’.At the end of discussion they came to the final point that a good health is the right of every child and brought it to the notice of head master and the teachers. Teachers told them that the mosquitoes can be controlled through Guppy fish. At the initial stage voluntary club members involved school students and cleaned school premises. After cleaning the school surroundings, students made small fish tank and bought one male and three female guppies for breeding. Few days later guppies started to eat mosquito’s eggs and larvae, etc. Regular follow up and cleanliness was carried on towards the eradication of larvae and eggs of mosquitoes. After some time they found the result; breeding of mosquitoes got controlled. Students were very happy for what they did. Govt. officials, villagers and teachers appreciated club members for such a big task.

Let me share that GlobalGiving has announced The April Little by Little Matching Campaign from09:00:00 ET on Monday, April 8, 2019, to 23:59:59 ET on Friday, April 12, 2019 designed to help celebrate the power of small donation by matching donations up to $50 at 50% with $50,000 in matching funds.  We are eligible for an additional 10% match on eligible donations as Sangli Mission Society is enjoying Superstar status accredited by GlobalGiving!
