Project Implementation Place: Siddaroud blind school, Hubli

Determination Of Body Mass Index (BMI) using height and weight values of an individual.

Project Description: BMI calculates fat content in the body and ensures proper development if the value is normal. The project was done in Siddaroud blind school, Hubli. The team measured height and weight of 120 children. A chart of BMI vs. age was prepared. Students were classified as underweight, normal, and obese. The report was submitted to the school authorities, so they take special care of th

e children. 
A team of four left for the blind school on the morning of 13th November, 2009. We first headed for the SDM College Of Dental Sciences to make the arrangements for the medical van and doctors. A bus with all the medical equipments installed and a team of 5 doctors accompanied us to the blind school.

BMI is "Body Mass Index". It tells you whether your body weight is appropriate for your height.

BMI = Weight in kilograms / (Height in meters) 2
BMI is a gross estimate for the amount of fat in your body. It tells you whether you need to lose weight or not.
"The blind school is situated in old Hubli. With the cooperation of the principal and staff members of the school we could carry on our proceedings smoothly. We were enchanted by the skills of the students studying at the blind school...just to mention a 5 year old girl Anjal could recite an entire 5-6 mins. speech before us. The place were the students slept, studied, and worked was all outstandingly well-kept,which the principle told they did themselves. We started at around 11 a.m. The students were asked to fill out a medical checkup form on which their names and ages were written with a signature of approval of the principal.We not only achieved our goal but we crossed several other milestones. The project helped us build moral values and ethics. Each and every one of us was influenced by this project. We thank the people of Despande Foundation for their help and support and the principal and faculty members of the blind school."
