November 2019: Road accident is a preventable problem, despite that, we lose many lives.
The students of Satya Bharti School, Bholian in Amritsar observed that many people in the village do not know/follow road safety rules. Sadly, a boy in the school also lost his father in a road accident as he was not wearing a helmet. To address the issue, a group of children came together and decided to steer efforts to spread awareness about wearing helmets and improve road safety.
Helped by their teachers and the village sarpanch, the children conducted many street plays and rallies to aware the community on road safety. They went to nearby government schools as well to make the children aware about the same, so that they could pass on the instructions in their respective families and neighbourhood.
Going forward, the students plan to include traffic police personnel in the area to conduct bigger awareness sessions for a far reaching impact.
