Be the Change!

DEC ROS PIC

Meaningful engagement with the community is a core aspect of RDF’s work; hence all schools have an active Social Awareness Program which we’ve always highlighted. Rollakal School conducted a rally in surrounding villages to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS. The rally was led by students, with senior school teachers accompanying them. Village elders and youth commended the schools for raising such awareness amongst people. Some people recommended that brides and grooms must undergo an HIV/AIDS test prior to marriage, to which students replied that some countries have made this mandatory. Students and teachers know that they can be the change they want to see in the world – inspirational words by Gandhiji that can truly be implemented in small and meaningful ways.
