My name is MEGHNA RAMARATNAM and I am a student of Grade 10 at the BOMBAY SCOTTISH SCHOOL Powai.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think the gift of education is something that is critical to a student. I cannot imagine the plight of a fellow student going to school without notebooks or pencils.
Writing, sketching and taking down notes are activities that sharpen our learning, give rein to creativity and are most importantly fun. It also promotes learning and mental activity. The fact that these books and pencils are made out of recycled material is an added bonus .They are beautifully made and clearly send out a message about the importance of recycling and going green.
The fact that a contribution of just INR 600 can make a difference to the life of a fellow student in a rural school made me realize that I must do something about it. Further, I believe that education and the tools for proper education are a basic necessity which should be available to everyone irrespective of their financial condition.
I have personally seen the books and pencils. They are no less than perfect in terms of design and quality. Its heartening to note that we will be giving them something that is world- class and environment friendly.
Let us positively impact lives of students. Please support my campaign as together we can transform the lives of at least 40 students in rural areas around Mumbai.
