RDF Kalleda School students motivated villagers about awareness on seasonal diseases. High School students went to the Primary Health Centre in Parvathagiri and gathered information on seasonal diseases and prevention from P.H.C doctors. Then the students conducted a meeting in school and discussed their experiences with the doctors. Thereafter, the students conducted a rally to make villagers aware about seasonal diseases. Together, they cleaned streets and dirty areas – an effort appreciated by the community.
Summer holidays certainly mean fun and for RDF children, it is also a time to learn valuable skills. Children help the community by harvesting and packing mangoes from the mango orchards. This teaches them essential values like dignity of labour and understand the hard work undertaken by their parents to fulfil their primary needs. In the process, they learn skills like farming, harvesting, packaging and sales! They do this with joy and parents feel proud and happy to receive this support too. They learn that every contribution counts and learn to live with dignity.
