Case – Study – Build Toilet (Positive Times):

BHOPAL:

They could have spent the money on movies, burgers or ice-cream. But Memoona Khan, 16, and her brotherAamir Khan, 14, pooled in every penny they could lay their hands on to build a toilet for a girls’ school inNarsingpur district of Madhya Pradesh.

Memoona of class XI and Aamir of class X saved from the scholarship money they received as “minority community” students. To that they added Rs 2,000 for the toilet at Maharani Laxmi Bai Girls Higher Secondary School, Narsingpur.

“The school had only one toilet. I’d feel bad seeing students standing in a queue to ney — we contributed a total of Rs 2,000. Thus we had around Rs 10,000 in total. Seeing our enthusiasm, our father also pitched in with Rs 14,500 for the toilet.”

Contributing towards causes comes naturally to Memoona. In 2011, she’d written to CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, calling him “Mamaji”, to request for a road to be built to her school. Responding to her letter, Chouhan had sanctioned funds, saying: “Bhaanjion ki baat kaise taal sakta hoon?”
