Impact Story

Anish is a 14-year-old boy and a member of the children’s council. He is also the Disaster Management Minister of the Shiv Ganga Children’s Council in Makkari village.

When he was elected as Disaster Management Minister by the Shiv Ganga Children’s Council, he began focusing on teaching swimming skills to the members of the children’s council. Soon, he noticed that some of the children didn’t know how to swim, so he volunteered to train them in swimming skills so that they would know how to swim in case of a flood or other similar disasters and be able to save themselves and others.

Anish invited five children from the children’s council to the village pond, where he taught them how to swim step by step, training for two hours after school every day for a week. At first, the five boys were all afraid of swimming, but Anish assured them that they would learn and encouraged them and gave them confidence.

Anish is an excellent coach. Now the five children have all learned to swim and are very grateful to Anish and the children’s council for teaching them swimming skills. These skills will stay with the children even after the project is finished and will be useful for a lifetime.
