The Pilgrim School, Dimapur on September 27 and 28, participated the BTC (Be The Change) Conference held at Ahmedabad.
Design For Change, a global movement which inspires children to bring positive changes in their world hosts BTC Celebrations every year to bring together young change makers from around the globe to one stage and share their remarkable stories of change.
The celebration connects and collaborates children, teachers and school leaders with each other to spread the contagious ‘I CAN’ bug to all children across the globe.
Keneisavi Solo of class 8 from Pilgrim School was one among the student speakers from 22 different countries who were asked to share their stories of change.
Keneisavi was part of a team comprising of about 21 students with 5 of them as the core team from Pilgrim School that went to clean up the historical remains of a series of mushrooms domed pillars now remembered as Rajbari located in Wallford, Dimapur.
These group of young boys and girls in their early teen felt the need to bring a change after observing the pathetic condition of the Rajbari Park. With the help of a teacher guide they had a brain storming session and came up with the idea of observing a cleanliness drive along with an awareness campaign. Headmistress of Pilgrim School,Dimapur, Kaini Khekho Kikon in a press note stated that their project ‘Aaitihasik hi desh ki dhan haiIski rakshya hi hamara shan hai’ was successful after having cleaned the site and the response they received from the visitors to the park and the passersby and they also donated dustbins which were purchased from their own contribution and handed over to the president, Kachari Rajbari Preservation Committee. This is a story about a group of young children who stepped out to bring change they wanted to see by being the change.
