In the thinly populated, remote corner of Ladakh, lies Army Goodwill School Faroona (partner school under Bharti Foundation’s Satya Bharti Quality Support Program). Most children of this region belong to the Sankoo belt. To preserve the culture of the older generation and leave a piece for the future, the students ideated to make a “Mini Museum”.
The objective of the museum was to involve the community and generate ownership among them. Over a period of 30 days, the students divided themselves into groups and initiated the process to curate material for the museum. While some students collected artefacts, others interacted and interviewed the elderly to know about the culture in detail. The museum was formed in one of the rooms in the school.
As the museum took shape, it was the elderly who were deeply touched and impressed by the zest of the students to take up such a unique, and much needed initiative. The school’s Arts and Culture Club took responsibility of maintaining and promoting the museum.
