|Engineers in Making|
Jagdish Sen, studying in standard 4th, Sagar Nora, studying in standard 5th and Sohail Sheikh, studying standard 4th made a working model of city streets. Entire projects was created using scrap material from construction sites. Traffic lights were made using small LED's, scrap wires and batteries. A spinwheel of cars was made by DC motor extracted from a remote controlled car picked from trash and connected using wires to a wheel made of cardboard and Styrofoam. When asked how they were able to put together this creative model, they said that they got the idea after visiting a mini railways museum where moving miniature trains were displayed. A BIG THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS AND SUPPORTERS FOR MAKING SUCH EXPOSURE VISITS A REALITY FOR THESE CHILDEN !!
Jagdish's father works at the construction site as a supervisor and he has 3 sisters. Two of the sisters are going to school, however the eldest one does not. Jagdish goes to school regularly and also helps other children to walk to school every day. This construction site is on a hill and arranging transport was not possible. Earlier only about 8-9 children used to attend school, but with this initiative started by Jagdish, 23 children from this site are attending school regularly now. Kudos to Jagdish !!
Jagdish wants to be an IAS officer when he grows up.
Sagar's parents have 5 children. His mother is a homemaker and father is a welder. Overwhelmed by expenses of such a large family, he sent Sagar to work at a nearby tea stall. Sagar ran back home and started to attend school. Sagar's ambition is to become engineer when he grows up.
Sohail's parents work at the construction site as daily labors. He has one sister and two brothers. All of them go to school. Sohail would like to become a doctor when he grows up.
