With an intention of continuing its success in rural areas of Roorkee, the volunteers of Model Village cell of NSS, IIT ROORKEE again completed a semester of free coaching classes from 11:00 am-1:00 pm in Bhangeri village on 1st November, 2015. The cell volunteers had been working rigorously in the areas of health, education, employment and awareness to ensure a healthy and progressive society.
The activity which forms the part and parcel of this cell is to provide free education to the children of all age groups and thus, preparing them for the impending competition that awaits them when they actually get into the intricacies of real life. In order to facilitate developmental strategies and to bridge the gap between urban and rural India, Model Village, NSS IIT Roorkee strives to work hard in this direction and ensures the availability of basic amenities, facilities and useful commodities to the rural folk. With regular lessons of subjects like Physics, Maths, etc. from Monday to Friday, Saturday and Sunday are meant to be devoted for doing simple and knowledgeable experiments along with giving a little dosage of moral sciences and healthy sports activities like kho-kho and kabaddi.
Other happenings included events like quizzes, essay writing aimed at cultivating their co-curricular activities also. Not only this, regular students and winners were awarded to further invoke their interests in respective areas.
In a nutshell, the journey which started three years back from a small section of the village has now moved on to the entire village with 90 students at present, thus creating more awareness and involving even greater participation.
