Under Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) Manav Rachna University has adopted five villages Anangpur, Ankhir, Mewla, Fathepur Chandela and Pali. A survey was conducted in all the five different villages by various clan members about the open defecation and various other issues related to their lifestyle and sanitation
110 student volunteers along with 25 faculty and staff members from different faculties of Manav Rachna University carried out donation drive and a survey in all the villages to find out their basic requirements. The objective of conducting the survey was to identify issues and problems to further prepare a proposal for village upliftment. Villagers whole heartedly participated in the survey process and provided the requisite information
The visit in Mewla and Fathepur Chandela began with the donation of books and school uniforms to Government Senior Secondary School of the village. In Mewla Maharajpur 400 books related to pedagogy skills for teachers and 700 subject books were donated. Along with the books 200 dresses (shirt, trousers, tie and jackets) and 200 pairs of socks were also donated.
In Fathepur 669 books on pedagogy and 29 subject books were donated along with 200 dresses and 200 pairs of socks. Through interaction with students and teachers, it was noted that the school lacks computer facilities. They praised this noble effort by Manav Rachna Family. The donation drive was followed by filling of the survey forms for households as well as the amenities available in the village.
In Anangpur, Pali and Ankhir, the villagers shared their data for the survey. The motive behind collecting this information was to initiate assistance in the near future for the upliftment of the village and as a whole that of society. Altogether it was a good experience for the students and a fruitful exercise in strengthening our community association.
