Mr Nazir Ahmad Bhat - Jammu & Kashmir
The story of Mr. Nazir Ahmed is very inspiring that a single man can change the world but he must have a zeal to do it. He is presently working in the Government Primary School – Bonpora Pirpora of district – Shopian, Jammu & Kashmir.. When he took charge as headmaster of this school, it was in very critical condition. The enrolment of the school was 5-10 students with no infrastructure. Surrounding the school was unwanted bushes and grass growing making the environment of the school more harass for teaching – learning. Moreover villagers were dumping their cow dung in a pit near the school. He took initiative to change the school. He organised meetings with the villagers and discuss the various problem being faced in the school. He mobilized the society
Wither it may be building, furniture or may be lack of land for further extension of school. People dump dung near the campus and there were bushes around the school. No proper sitting arrangements for students so enrollment of school was continuously decreasing and school reached at the verge of closure. In such conditions Mr. Nazir took the charge of the school. He mobilized the society and contacted his higher authorities for betterment of the school and its conditions.
He with his other two fellow teachers took initiative to clean and cut the unwanted trees and bushes in the campus. Later on villagers also extended their helping hand for this and with community support they developed a beautiful garden where little kids can realize the real world conditions and education. Organized various plantation drives to beautify school with local community. With the permission from Rural Development Department he used the unused furniture of nearby Panchayat ghar for the students and teachers. Due to his innovative initiatives the enrolment of the school has been increased from 40 to 80 students
