They collected and analyzed data to understand the educational landscape of the area. Then they planned activities with the children and with the 500 families in the area to encourage them to enroll their children. They also collected donations for sports items, books, stationery, chocolates, educational materials and learning toys. Finally, they made the four-hour journey to the school to meet with teachers and parents, play with the children and deliver the donated goods. The team plans to have an ongoing volunteer relationship with Phool Nagar School.
