Acharya Vinoba Bhave School started a Photography Club in collaboration with Abhijeet Anand, a professional photographer.
The photography club is part of the clubs program that focuses on youth development and students from grades 8 to 10 are members of the club.
In the club, students use iPads and have learnt about focus, light-shadow, perspective and creating logo’s. In addition to building on technical skills, students have also been encouraged to build entrepreneurial skills through annual photography competitions in school.
This club has provided students a unique opportunity to express themselves, collaborate, observe critically and build creativity. Currently, the club has over 25 members.
Below are photographs that were printed as postcards and shared with guests at the Akanksha Foundation gala in Hong Kong.

The photograph tells the story of a cycle and its journey. The journey is long and difficult, as you can see the path. The cycle is taking a little rest right now.

This photograph represents sunset through grass that shines brightly when the sun is setting. The focus of the photograph is the use of light.
The thought behind this photograph is that even when we are going through a difficult time in our life, we still have the opportunity to shine and be bright like the grass.
