Today we went to different schools to brief them about the Genius Event taking place at the Patan Museum. Organized by Spiny Babbler in association with 92Y of New York, our job is to make sure that schools are aware of what is happening and to invite them to participate in the event. First of all, we went to Universal School which is located at Gwarko, Lalitpur. There we co-ordinated with the Principal and talked about the genius week and creating for the good of everyone. We provided them the details and specific information about the event. The principal gave us a positive feedback and wanted his young people to participate in our event.
Then we went to Shree Shanti School which is located nearby. We met the Principal there and talked about the program. The principal was so enthusiastic, he immediately arrange for us to meet with the students who would participate in the event. They were all set in one classroom where we briefed them about event. We talked about one and half hours with the students. They were quite interested and we were heartened. Then we listed out the name of all the students participating in the event.
After that we went to BDS Higher Secondary School. There we waited for half an hour to meet the Principal. Though the school didn’t want to participate, it was good to share what was going on. At the end of the day, Jenish, Suchan, Kushboo and I were pleased that we now had 19 confirmations from various schools and many more schools who wanted to meet us to discuss how they could participate. I felt that I was learning a lot through this experience about how young people can interact and create for the good of our communities, nations, and the world.
