This was the day where the team shared the cycle yatra experience with Administration of State and District level of Sheikpura, Shri Pranav Kumar below are the discussion points:

  • Team presented the experience to ADM of Sheikhpura
  • ADM gave more than 30 minutes.  He accepted the issues that have shared by the teachers and they are real. We have to work within the system.  He wanted to know the school where toilet and water handpump are not there. He asked his staff to take action on this.
  • He said these findings are nice in the laptop, but it is hard to see the result on the ground.  Most NGO come and show result on the laptop.
  • Team clarified that before we take up a project we need to understand the area and the Yatra has provided appropriate platform to know them and
  • Team is now interested in implementing the recommendation (from the laptop) in one CRC of Sohadi (on the ground)
