August 2019: In GHS Hiranwali, Punjab (partner govt. school under Bharti Foundation’s Satya Bharti Quality Support Program), a group of students came together to reduce the wastage of water due to overflow in the four overhead tanks at the school. In addition to the wastage, the excess water got collected around the school, compromising its sanitation and hygiene conditions.
The students were keen to find a solution that was long-term and easy to apply. An interesting innovation then came to light when one of the children suggested to make a “water level alarm” which would ring once the tank is filled to its capacity.
After school hours, the students divided themselves in groups to collect discarded materials in their surroundings to design the circuit of the alarm. With support from their teachers, the students successfully built the circuit and installed it.
