Pune:: EuroSchool believes that community outreach is an essential channel of creating awareness and working with neighbourhoods to achieve common social goals. It identifies Community Outreach Programme (COP) as a core activity area the academic learning process, which gives students an opportunity to develop their thoughts on social issues.
With Maharashtra government declaring drought-like situation in14, 708 villages this year and the looming threat of water shortage in Pune, EuroSchool, Undri students will launch its “Catch the Drop” campaign to save water under its Community Outreach Programme (COP) 2015.
The annual COP of EuroSchool, Undri, thus serves as a platform for its students to engage with different communities and neighbourhoods to bring a transformation in society. Every year, EuroSchool, Undri takes up a prevalent social concern and undertakes various exercises to create awareness among citizens. Last year the school had focused on the ills of sexual violence on children.
For maximum outreach, the school has decided to conduct COP 2015 at the centrally located and popular SGS Mall, Camp from 2pm -6pm on Friday, October 23.
“With repeated water crisis in the city, environmentalists have time and again raised concerns about the rampant wastage of water and poor citizen participation in water conservation. We believe that our children can become junior water advocates to espouse the cause of water conservation among citizens. The ‘Catch the Drop’ campaign by students will lay emphasis on simple solutions that can be adopted by citizens to save water and reduce wastage of the natural resource. We believe that the outreach programme will also instill in our students a sense of responsibility towards nature and its resources,” said Meera Sain, Principal, EuroSchool, Undri.
To involve students of all age groups, EuroSchool, Undri has involved students from Junior Kg to Grade 6 in the campaign. Presenting themselves as junior water advocates, students will share water conservation tips with fellow citizens at SGS Mall, in addition to hosting ‘learning through entertainment’ activities.
Further, the students have decided to sell handmade paper bags, wall hangings and pen-stands, with the intent that empowered citizens during COP 2015 will be forthcoming in purchasing products, the sale proceeds of which will be given for charity.
