With the support of SahbhagiShikshan Kendra and UNICEF, childrens drawing activity was organized with the children in primary and upper primary schools of eight panchayats of Ikauna block of Shravasti district and two panchayats of Barabanki on the theme "My dream village". This was an attempt to understand children's perspective of an ideal village. Through this, the children came up with excellent drawings that reflected their needs in the Gram Panchayat. In this activity, through the medium of drawing, they portrayed a hospital, a school, places of worship, and animal husbandry activities etc. They also drew a playground with various play equipment such as a see-saw, slide, and swings. Alongside, they idealized a green and clean village that has an open-gym center, solar street light, water tank and toilet facilities, computer center, hospital, etc. for them in their village. The problems/requirements arising out of the painting were discussed with the respective village head. The head of the village panchayat Salwaria realized the importance of the findings of these drawings and assured them to construct a playground for the children in the village panchayat after some time. Within some time, a children's playground was constructed in the Gram Panchayat by Pradhan (Village chief).
