During community visit, on 4th of March 2021, meeting was held with three Community Journalist Groups at LRP-50, Lalua-Champapur. Total 18 members attended the meeting with AAB team. The main purpose of this meeting was to inspire the members to write whatever they want to share. One of the participants, Maria said, “At first, I would like to thank you for coming here & give us the opportunity to share our learning with you. As our school is closed now, we don’t have that opportunity to meet with friends on a regular basis. And so today I am feeling great to have a wonderful time with my friends.
I just want to say you that I loved to write. But sometimes it happened that, I did not understand what to write. But now, I don’t think much. When I feel bad, I write, when I feel good, I write. It’s amazing to arrange my own thoughts with words. And now I try to be very conscious about the problems of our community as I have to solve those through my writings. I try to talk with other children whether they are facing any problems or not. I also tell them to write. I want to do something for the children by writing about their rights, problems. Thanks to ActionAid to inspire me in this regard. It really means a lot to me.”
