When designing local action projects, BWB Club leaders must consider students' interests in order to encourage participation, the school's support in order to achieve a smooth operation, as well as the potential impact in order to reach their goals. Conducting a successful local action project is a true test of students' ability to organize and strategize as leaders.
The BWB Club at Strawberry Fields High School in India has done a fantastic job in creating a successful local action project targeting SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being. Seeing that their school is supportive of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month initiative, the students planned a Pink Week on campus to raise awareness among the students and their families of this often unspoken disease.
The club raised funds through dress-down, bake sales, and games. It was so successful last year - they raised more than $1100 USD - that the students decided to continue the initiative and potentially make it a tradition at Strawberry Fields. This year, the club will add educational components such as speakers and plays, as described by the club presidents Rushi Doger and Mannat Kaur. They are joined by club members: Mannat Goyal; Aarush Khanna; Aalia Ashar; Gulnaaz Gill; Armaan Kapoor; Damita Sethi; Krishna Passi; Annika Kaur Khara; Hemaksha garg; Rushil Khanna; Ishitta Groverr; Akshat Kapoor; Angad Singh; Satvik Singla; Arnav Dhaka.
Please join us in congratulating the Strawberry Fields students for their job well done!
