Nine is Mine Programme in Delhi

Nine is Mine Campaign


There had been a campaign concerning Nine is Mine in New Delhi on the 19th and 20th November, 2010, for which we had taken 10 participants from Andhra Pradesh, two HRE students and one teacher from St. Ann’s School, Paderu and 5 students and one teacher from Lutheran School, Rajahmundry and they were accompanied by Mr. Anthony, the Associate Coordinator. It was very difficult choice for school headmasters whom to choose for this programme since it was going to be in New Delhi. Finally they were able to choose few children who were able to perform and speak their experiences. The two School headmasters felt that it was a great opportunity that had come to their children. They expressed their happiness.

Children who were chosen for this programme were too happy and overwhelming with joy. Mr. Martin Sudhakar prepared these children to perform a dance on Human Rights Song. And one of the HRE students namely Yamini prepared herself to share her experience about Nine is Mine.

The programme was held at Malvihar Auditorium in New Delhi the chief guest for this programme was Ms. Vasundara Das, the actress and singer. There were students from different schools from Delhi. There were also Students from Chandigarh who cycled to New Delhi campaigning for Nine is Mine. They cycled for 300 kms and reached St. Columbus’s School where students were stationed.  In this programme children expressed their views and experiences while collecting the signatures of children. Yamini our HRE student shared her experiences and views on Nine is Mine in Telugu which was translated into English. She said she went to 11 schools and 10 Aganwadi Centers collecting signatures from students and letting them know the importance of it and children too expressed and extended their full support to obtain the promised 9% of GDP by Government. She shared that there are many children out of school and children who are malnourished and suffering from ailments. She reiterated that the Government has to fulfill their promises and achieve 100% literacy and health in our country.

Our HRE children too performed a dance on Human Rights which was a highlight of all items. The meaning of the song was that we are all brothers and sisters irrespective of caste, religion and culture. Let us stand united if we are divided we fall.


The main attraction of the programme was the chief guest Ms. Vasundara Das who promised and extended her full support for this cause by signing the Nine is Mine card.HRE students who attende programme
