Volunteers from Axis Bank

Axis Bank partnered with 17000 ft Foundation to conduct the Rural Immersion part of their Leadership Development Program. The participants conducted Library and Infrastructure Programs at the schools and various other studeis and surveys. A total of 16 bankers were part of this excercise. They were split into groups of 4 each.

Jattender, Anirudh, Abhijit and Nirav were assigned High School Wanla in Khaltse block . It is a beautiful school with 117 children and 15 teachers. It recently saw a sudden increase in enrolment when it became a residential school and children from very remote villages of the Khaltse block of Leh District come to stay and learn in this school.

Here the group was further split into 2 members each and aternatively conducted the different modules - Playground installation, Book Reading and Role Play Activity and Financial Literacy Survey for adults The group enthusiastically conducted the Reading Programs, Role play activities and Art and Craft workshops. The other task was to help setup a playground at the school. The team was all up for physical activity inspite of high altitudes! They also helped to conduct Financial Literacy Survey at village Shachukul. Great job all Bankers !

They all stayed in simple guest houses / homestays with basic amenties and enjoyed simple home made meals. They got to experience the very essence of real Ladakh.

Thank you for your substantial contribution to the projects of 17000 ft! You all really made a difference!
