Proposal - Student Summer Camp


What do you want to do?

An awareness camp of 10 days, focusing on career options, overall development and social responsibility for some selected poor students from village and sub-urban schools. Next five days, we will devote on organizing competitions and small events with open entry to all, and will try to invite more and more prestigious people as guest.


Why do you want to do it?

This fulfills the need of society. Students, teachers of these regions, particularly from Government schools have not much idea about modern world. They often heard about engineers, doctors but they don’t exactly know how to build themselves for achieving these positions. They also don’t have much idea about the better techniques of agriculture. They don’t know to appreciate the thing what they are doing. Regarding extra curricular activities like art, music, sport, they simply think these things as useless. 

Such camp will try to make aware about all these things. We will try to get students from various schools, so that they will go in their school and will share these ideas with friends and parents.

Inviting respected people, at single stage, will make them to think about development issues, so that they will play big role in bringing the change. We will make video of all important events and will be circulated to as many schools as possible. These videos can be sent to other regions as well. Such activities will induce more and more students from prestigious institutions like IIT, IIM, and AIIMS from that region to come forward and make people aware. 

We think this is the need of hour. This is very challenging as we have to manage everything for the students, have to stay with them, play with them, eat with them, sleep with them and also organize outside world simultaneously to make the event successful. These would be memorable for us and most importantly, it’s our dream for past two or three years, which will come true. Such awareness will act as foundation for large scale activities in future.


How will you do it?
