Rani's participation and contribution

NISD organised a Child Fair at village Pokhari. There were various programmes – cultural, play, competitions etc. Rani participated by performing a dance to a Marathi song.  The local people really appreciated her dance and Rani got a cash prize for her performance.


Children’s Day was celebrated in Rani’s school.  Rani and her team took an active part in the program. They organised a rally in their village and did a poster exhibition, on children’s issues.


In December a training for Child Parliament members was organised by NISD in Sangamner. Rani presented the various problems of children in her village and also expressed some of difficulties that she experiences while working in Child Parliament.


In January, Rani also took part in a project organised by the government’s Integrated Child Development Project, which aims to reduce malnutrition among adolescent girls. Her mother took part in the training too and began to understand how good nutrition can counter this problem.


Rani also took part in the Joyful Education program, organised by NISD, at village Pokhari.  She learnt different action songs, plays, cross words and preparation of educational material from locally available waste material.  She prepared a nice butterfly and the Guest lecturer appreciated her efforts.


Rani attended all the meetings of her Child Parliament.  She gave information to  other members about the programs and knowledge organised by NISD at Sangamner, information to members about their educational tour, organised Children’s Day, care of the mobile library books that are torn, etc .
