“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”-by Nelson Mandela.
Education is the most important part of a student’s life and to make a small contribution in the life of school students,Pragati, the social sensitivity cell of IIM Indore took the initiative to distribute stationery in all the four schools adopted by the Institute. The schools are namely, Umaria Primary School, Govt. Primary School Nawada, KG Primary School and Shramik Colony Govt. Primary School. The stationery distributed by the Pragati members included the following items (per student):
- Four Notebooks
- Two Pencils
- Two Sharpeners
- Two Rubber
- One set of coloured sketch pens
IIM Indore has always tried to serve the under-served of the nation and the School Adoption Program is another such step towards achieving that aim. The stationery items were distributed to 585 students. The Pragati team also tried to create awareness in the students about the importance of education and role of education in their life.To further track the improvements in health and education level of children in these schools, Pragati plans to use data and social analytics tools. It has also planned to conduct more such programs in the upcoming academic year to support the school students.
