Seasonal Greetings to you from HEARDS – India!
During this reporting period HEARDS with the support of your valuable donations has started a centre in Prashant Nagar Colony, Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, INDIA. Child labor eradication though bridge school intervention programme has successfully been implemented with your inevitable support. Under this project 25 child labor school dropouts who were working in different sectors like workshops, poultry farms, garage, hotel, domestic help, construction works and brick industries and who had been deprived of education and childhood are being helped. Here we are trying our level best to convince another 65 children and hopefully we will gain this in the future period.
We have appointed 3 teachers and 1 animator as of now to provide education and awareness to these children. Children are being provided with a quality education and educational support, all children re-enrolled to the rehabilitation center. They are attending the center every day. Here we are providing mid-day meal to these children which are a nutritious food for them. We have also appointed a cook to prepare mid-day meal for them.
Personal changes of the child
As the children are in the beginning months they were facing difficulty in adjusting to the new climate, teacher, learning discipline, attending classes, doing home work but now after motivation they are fine. They are learning living in groups, day to day practice of morning exercises, prayer, meditation, regular food and regular morning and evening habits. Behavior with teacher and colleague is positively changing by responding well to questions raised in the school and in the center by teachers and visitors.
I am enclosing a picture of staff meet at Prashant Nagar colony for your kind perusal. Bridge School intervention is helping a lot for these neglected child laborers and school drop outs to regain their lost childhood and education and parents could think towards role and responsibility of children education. Both community and parents have turning point to change attitude towards development of children with providing good education and childhood opportunities for children to become good energetic citizen of the country. On behalf of HEARDS and children, we would say thank you very much for all hands behind working for welfare of these needy neglected children.
I request you to kindly send your feedback in our comments section! Also, please tell your friends, family and colleagues about HEARDS accomplishments! More pictures will be sent to you in the coming days.
