    Reap Benefit Session

As you sow, sow you reap. What goes round comes round. This is the universal law of nature. The human race is collectively responsible for mutilating nature beyond repair. Today we have manifold destruction of loss and property due to the actions of man in harming nature.

Reap Benefit is an organization started to create tangible impact and become a local problem solver. Its main goal is to be in tune with nature and provide a sustainable living to the communities and find solutions to environmental issues using coding and technology. It also encourages potential students to work in government schools on projects related to management of waste, water, energy and sanitation.

Our school Headmistress Ms. Daisy Bastian formally introduced the Resource Person Mr. Kuldeep Singh to our students. Mr. Kuldeep Singh was of the opinion that genuinely intelligent students who can take action could become great contributors in finding solutions to challenging problems if the adults are able to instill a sense of belief amongst these students. The future belongs to people who have a sense of purpose. In today’s times entrepreneurs hire people who have the ability to solve life’s real problems and not people who are just academically good. He cited the inventions of Google self-driven cars and space shuttle and these were the invented by very ordinary people.

Mr. Kuldeep Singh went on to narrate three inspiring stories of students who have found solution to problems in their locality.

Seeing the unhygienic and horrific conditions of the washrooms in a government school, Rohit, a student came up with the idea of waterless urinals using a 20 liter water can. Presently four students are working on this idea in Stanford.

Another student, Ritika, having experienced the bumpy rides on Bengaluru roads with dangerous potholes decided to work on an application. She has finally developed an application that can detect any pothole in Bengaluru. This application has helped the traffic police and the state government to take action and immediately repair those hazardous potholes.

Another interesting invention by a student of National Public School is Air Quality Monitor. This instrument is designed at a low cost that can detect the quality of air that we are breathing.

Finally Mr. Kuldeep Singh screened video clips on effects of global warming and climate change. Hurrricanes, tornadoes, flood, untimely rains have been striking our earth due to the imbalance created by man. The doomsday may not be far off, if we do not rise up to find solutions to these global problems.

In the end, he invited students to join Reap Benefit Organization to become a problem solver using coding and technology and help the local community. One small step for an individual can in the near future be a giant leap for mankind.
