Education can’t make us all leaders, but it can teach us which leader to follow; Bel Kaufman quotes
Supporting girl child education is enabling them to live in a progressive world. The purpose fulfills the gap where we reach out to the girls who live in interior villages without any means of education. There arises a question of how many girls go to school from such villages. This is what exactly we are working towards, making education accessible to such girls through bicycle.
I don’t know what it makes feel the world about giving bicycle to girl child, but it make difference to the girl and family who get bicycle and can go along with other girls to study further. Our project helps girls of tribal villages in Jhagadia block and Vagra block.
It feels so happy to see girls riding bicycle on roads and reach schools every day without any hurdle. Recently we have provided bicycle to 12 girls from a village called Mota-Sanja (Jhagadia block). They had to walk 5.5 km to go to school for higher education. I happened to pass by that village; it was a pleasure seeing those girls riding bicycles back to home after school. Their smiling faces convey everything.
Thanks to our entire donors for being part of their happiness. It is you all who make it possible to bring them back to school forever.
We are always curious to hear from your side.
Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think ~ Albert Einstein
Our whole purpose of providing education to needy is to bring about everlasting social change. Access to education will help these children to understand their selves better; it helps them to realize their potential and qualities as a human being. The means of giving education is not only to make them literate but also self-dependent. A single person getting an education in the family will think of others around him/her, and children we support through this project are first learner in the family.
Jenelia get supports to complete their education. She is doing bachelor in commerce stream in first year. She gets supports in term of college fees, tution fees, reading material, stationary, bag and transport charges semester wise. Jenelia’s father works in garage.
Interestingly, I was travelling in a bus yesterday and I happened to meet Jenelia, though she did not see me as she was reading for her second semester internal exams. I just said ‘hello’ to her and she got so excited to tell me that she got first class in the first semester. It was blissful to hear that from her.
Let us help more children like her, to make their life meaningful by investing in their education.
All the blessing that we receive is because of our donors. Thanks to all our donors to support the cause and giving more importance to the education of needy.

Girl child higher education is a crucial in rural area. Improving access to education for girls is an issue need to be address which exactly Gram Vikas Trust is focusing on in the remote villages of Gujarat. I was reading an article on “why we should support girl education” posted by Chima F. Madu. She has rightly mentioned that “Education is very important for every child whether boy or girl. It is sad that some communities still discriminate against the education of the girl child”.
Recently we have supported 3 girls (Meeta, Rehea, Ileana (name changed)) through this project. They are in 10th standard, sooner they will be appearing for board examinations. I would definitely share their results with you as it’s you all who think of their education. There are many more to whom we still need to support for further education.
I happened to visit the school before 15 days. I do meet and converse with all the girls in the school. Ileana came to me and she simply told me that “I am going to write much better in this exam it seems, Thank you for giving us excellent reading material and all other”
Thanks to all the donors for making it possible and believe in us. Please share your view about our project and make suggestions if we need to improve in the way we work.
