ABVP will reach the unreached through #SelfieWithCampus Campaign: Ashish Chauhan (National General Secretary)
Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has decided to reach the unreached educational institutions and students across the country with a unique initiative to engage young people in schools & colleges to share stories of achievements, social activism, creative outlook among students and finest of practices as an institution to connect students with larger cause of society and the nation. The campaign has been named “#SelfieWithCampus” under which ABVP activists are proposed to visit +2 Schools and Colleges across India with a target to touch 1 lakh campuses from 30th July, 2018 to 4th August, 2018 to inspire students towards the concerns of nation.
ABVP’s National General Secretary Shri Ashish Chauhan points out the idea behind the ambitious campaign “ABVP has its presence across the country and is the largest students’ organization of the country. The number of students’ union posts held by us makes us the most trusted and voted students’ organization. In the last decade, we have reached and have active units in several distant parts of the country and that has brought the student community closer. Through this campaign, we wish to reach all those institutions where we have hitherto no presence, to enable the students there to raise their issues at the appropriate levels.”
ABVP has come up with an android app specially for the campaign which will enable its activists to upload full information about the places they visit onto the app and will help in networking as well. As part of this campaign, the organization has identified the hitherto unreached campuses across the country and has planned visits there by local activists. Detailed state level and Vibhag / Zila level workshops for this campaign were held earlier this month to prepare the activists well. National level office bearers were part of the state level workshops where the activists were trained to actively implement the campaign.
