Prime Minister, in his radio talk programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’, hailed the students for creatively making Reusable Toys from old clothes, discarded wood pieces, bags and boxes.
“Efforts of converting Waste to Value are also being attempted. One such example is that of St. Teresa’s College in Kochi, Kerala. I remember that in 2017, I attended a programme centred on book reading on the campus of this college. Students of this college are making Reusable Toys, that too in a very creative manner. These students are converting old clothes, discarded wooden pieces, bags and Boxes into making toys,” said PM Modi.
“Some students are making a puzzle while another made a car or construct a train. Here, special attention is paid to ensure that the toys are safe as well as child friendly and a good thing about this whole effort is that these toys are given to the Anganwadi children for them to play with. Today, while India is moving much forward in the manufacturing of toys, these campaigns from Waste to Value, these ingenious experiments mean a lot,” added the Prime Minister.
Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan has congratulated the students of St Teresa’s College in Kochi on being hailed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
