At Dharavandhoo, I worked with a group of students.

After a presentation by Lira at the school, these students volunteered their afternoon to help our team finish a section of town in mosquito control survey!

The students learn so fast! They move quickly through the homes finding the well (varlhu) and tanks (tangee), and dump out standing water. More importantly, they bring light to our project- a happiness that can be lost without community participation.
