Kanti Hedge undertook a project to foster a love of drawing in small children. The Project was held at Agasal Bommanalli Primary School. After coming together as a team with Pavana, Manasa and Ashok, she decided that students should be given an opportunity to explore their talent.
After securing the permission from the school headmaster, who was at first a little sceptical about the project, Kanti approached Mr. G.M Bommanalli, a famous cartoonist. Mr Bommanalli taught students to draw and used techniques that would help them enhance their skills. Competition is the key to test the effectiveness of any project, so Kanti and her team conducted a drawing competition for which paper, sketch pens and pencils were provided using the 720 Rs funded by LEAD. The teachers were very supportive of this idea.
Kanti says that her aim was to help students realize their talent. She aims to help these students further their interest in art. She thanks LEAD and DF for the opportunity she got to serve society.
