As the pandemic COVID 19 struck the world, it brought about challenging times for people across the globe. However, while the COVID-19 cases surge in the world as well in India day by day, the preparedness is also increasing. Many initiatives are being taken to ensure safety for all. Several Government measures have successfully prepared masses to fight the pandemic, including awareness through electronic as well as print media.
Bharti Foundation’s Satya Bharti Schools have also been actively taking initiatives to ensure the safety of the lesser privileged communities across the rural regions of India. The teachers have been making use of social platforms to create awareness in their respective schools/classes and reaching out to the children and their families through WhatsApp groups and phone calls. They are also reiterating the measures and updating the community members about the latest about this pandemic during their day to day virtual teaching sessions and interactions with the students. They are making their efforts to ensure that all sections of the society get adequate safety and awareness to go through these tough times.
In three districts of Haryana namely Mahendragarh, Jhajjar and Rewari, the Satya Bharti Schools’ students, their parents and teachers have taken an initiative to make masks for donation. They have planned to distribute the masks within their communities to the lesser privileged families who cannot afford to buy the necessary supplies to prevent themselves from the novel coronavirus. One lot of masks is also being reserved to be distributed among the underprivileged students when the schools resume. Together, they are also initiating many awareness campaigns to enlighten the community members about the importance of using masks and how wearing masks can safeguard not only the person wearing it but also those around us. Guidance on how to make masks at home is also being given to the community.
The students, parents and teachers enthusiastically partook in the activity. With 1475 masks from Jhajjar, 2668 masks from Rewari and 1679 masks from Mahendragarh, a sum total of over 5800 masks have already been made, with the number still growing.
Together, the children, parents and teachers from Satya Bharti Schools have set a perfect example for the fact that bringing about a transformation does not require a huge sum of money or resources; all it requires is some efforts and most of all, the will to initiate change!
