Teacher, Satya Bharti School Adarsh Senior Secondary School, Rauni Ludhiana (Punjab)
When Rajni Verma joined Satya Bharti Adarsh Senior Secondary School at Rauni, she promised herself to act as a role model and motivate her students to become responsible citizens, contributing to the growth and development journey of the society at large.
As a step towards her mission, Rajni selected few student volunteers who are empowered to become change agents in their communities. Upon identifying the top 20 social issues that were plaguing the community (including illiteracy, girl child education, cleanliness and hygiene etc.,); Rajni along with her student volunteers, conducted awareness building campaigns in the community. The small initiative started by Rajni soon became a regional crusade. As on date close to 200 children are working as young agents of change along with Rajni.
Rajni and her students’ joint initiative garnered National and international recognition at both the Design for Change School contest and the Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards.
