A Day for Juvenile Home Kids
LEADers Megha Jain and Shruti Harihar from BVBCET, Hubli came up with the idea to do something meaningful for juvenile home kids situated close to their hostel in Unkal colony in Hubli. They started collecting used and unused papers from their friends and offices. Within two weeks they collected 120 kg of papers. All the waste papers were sold to a paper industry and in return they got 150 new notebooks and Rs. 850 in cash. They also collected Rs. 1000 cash from local people. Later instead of giving these books directly to kids they conducted an exposure visit to BVB Engineering College for 22 kids to make them understand practically about the college study atmosphere and working. It was the occasion of Childrens’ Day when they organized this project. Both organized some competitions for the kids and distributed prizes to the winning team of each game. These prizes were purchased from the cash they have collected from friends, people and after selling papers.
This effort was to make these underprivileged kids’ lives happy at least for a day. The remaining books were given to 80 more children living in slum areas of Hubli.
