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.

Mohit, Ashutosh, Kunal and Kavita were assigned Middle School Chalungkha at 9,547 ft in Nubra block. Middle School Chulungkha is a beautiful school of 60 students and 7 teachers who have been diligently implementing the 17000 ft library program. The teachers have been very keen to provide a playground for their children and it gives utmost pleasure to present the playground to these children, a project made possible due to the efforts of AXIS Bank and its volunteers.

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!
