An awareness program was arranged at the central place of the village Chetanpurwa, Kursi road. Tehsil Bakshi ka Talab, Lucknow. This student-led awareness program tackles the increasing unaffordability and inaccessibility of housing in the local community. The campaign aimed to decrease the rent of most campus accommodation to a student defined definition of affordable so that all people wishing to go to university/institution can do so despite their socio-economic background and to ensure that the designs are truly sustainable. Students discussed in length with the rural community about the importance of affordable housing. A lack of affordable housing can impact the academic, health and well-being of students, as they face not only a high level of stress, but also a socio-economic burden that can further marginalize them and reproduce social hierarchies, and class, gender. racialized or ageist divides. The students also visited various houses in the village to create awareness about the affordable housing practice
