The Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) Cell of Mehr Chand Mahajan DAV College for Women, Chandigarh organised donation drives in the adopted villages of Buterla, Badheri and Attawa. In Buterla and Badheri, the UBA Cell team organised ‘Ripples in the Fun Pond’ for the students of the Government Schools wherein volunteers of the UBA team donated toys, games and stationery items, and played with the school students. The students understood the importance of games as an integral part of honing their cognitive skills and academic learning in a holistic manner.
During the donation drive in Attawa village, the student volunteers of the UBA team donated crayons, colouring books, notebooks, pencils and other stationery items to the students of the village anganwadi and also played with them.
The little children were overjoyed to receive the stationery items. In another initiative, the UBA Cell team organised an inspection of the NCERT textbooks donated earlier to the Government High School, Kajheri. The objective of the activity was to assess the usefulness of the books provided to the students under the Book Bank facility set up by UBA Cell and to monitor the procedure adopted by the school authorities to collect, store, organise and retrieve the donated books to the students.
Headmistress of the school Ms. Gurmeet Kaur appreciated the praiseworthy initiative of the college authorities in establishing the Book Bank.
Principal Dr. Nisha Bhargava applauded the exemplary work being done by the UBA Cell in the direction of rural upliftment. She added that through these donation drives, the Cell endeavoured to instil in village students love for learning, thereby helping in the accomplishment of the goals of quality education for all.
