Meeting with the Community Members about Trash

Description

We had a discussion with village leaders about putting trash systematically in our field visit. We gave them some dustbins to implement this. Our discussion focused on whether the villagers knew how to put trash systematically, and if we could get their permission to share our knowledge with the children of their village.

In general, my focus was very narrow and within the walls of classroom; and without an awareness of what is happening in these communities. But when I first went to this area, I felt that the outside world is different from what I have learnt in the classroom. I am aware that what I am learning in the classroom should also be applied in these practical areas.
