Description

We were talking with village leaders about putting trash systematically in this 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 children in their village.

In general, my focus was very naarow 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.
