Project: Issuing Identity Cards to Government School Students

Posted on Friday, December 03, 2010 by LEAD

Anupama is a student from MES Commerce College. He and his team members wanted to make some improvements to their old high school: Kalleshwar Govt. High School in Ankola taluk, a typical rural area. "At first, my primary aim was to rearrange the library, but after speaking with the teachers we decided the students needed chest cards (Student Identity Card). Thus, with the support of LEAD I started that project right away.

The main objective to take on this project was to fill the gap of discrimination between private and government schools. We can see private schools have all kind of modern facilities for the students whereas government school students lack all this. Identity card is the one most necessary requirement for students as it gives all the information about them and sometimes helps students in emergency cases.

I met with all the students and told them the importance of the identity cards and collected Rs 10 from all 90 of them. I took photos of all the students with the help of a teacher of that school. At the same time we also collected the students' address, parents' name, and contact details.
Each card’s cost came out to be Rs. 15. We were able to provide the identity cards to 90 students.
Even though I faced many difficulties, I'm happy to have completed my project successfully with 90 cards issued. We are so thankful to LEAD for giving us this valuable opportunity and amazing experience."
