India is a nation which has a larger part as rural area. Actually it is a positive thing for India. Where as when we see the other sides this rural India. should be developed if at all, the actual development should happen.
So we thought of the project of selecting a community and working on its development, it was also our RaShtrapthi Puraskar Exam Requirement. so we selected a place called Kudippadi villege which is adopted by our Vivekananda college in Puttur and in a community a school or such place will have a greater importance.
When the development of a school is done then automatically message of cleanliness, health will be carried out to the homes of the children who with a project on the school which is located in the area of that school.

We made the school as centre of our community development project . There were about 80 to 120 Students studying there .
so we asked their permission to serve them. The authorities of the Govt school Granted the permission.
On the First Saturday afternoon we went to the school and we saw that ground was covered with grasses and unwanted waste. the First action was we cleaned the grasses and the weeds.
We had bought some spades for this purpose . there was 4 spades with us. so it was a ground which had to be cleared. so then we cleaned the ground by this it was the evening and we ended up the work for that week.
On the next week we focused on the water supply and its management. the school had the water connection from Panchayat and also from their own borewell. so the 3 taps were not proper. so we made correct(tightened the taps) initially the water was leaking from those taps . then it become proper, and also we cleaned the water was flow way from the water tank to the taps. then the used water , water was slowing on to the road due to the miss connection.
on the third time we cleaned the water tank. the tank was open on the top and leaves tell into those tank, so the tank was filled with the dust. so we cleaned the tank due to the presence of dome school children, we waited till the evening , then in the evening by using broom sticks and such materials we cleaned the tank. two rovers got into the water tank.
