Amusement Creativity

Children excited to receive kites

RDOET ( HAO  India )

Report on Amusement Creativity 

Summary:  This project will enable children for the provision of kites though traditional but a remarkable festive day, as International    Kites Festival.  In India, observe the festive day of welcoming the Spring Season according to Sanskrit ‘ Vasanta Panchami’.

Background information of the identified Area: 

The people living here are in pathetic situation, without any basic amenities like clean drinking water proper sanitation, no electricity and live in huts. Main occupation of these communities is Garbage-lifters, rag-picking. Children are school dropouts not having proper education & they go for begging at Bus stops.

Objective:

  • Provision of Flying Kites
  • Provision with Manjha (thread)

You can’t fly a kite unless you go against the wind and have a weight to keep it from turning a somersault.  The same with Man.  No man will succeed unless he is ready to face and overcome difficulties and is prepared to assume responsibilities.

Kite flying is a popular outdoor sport in many countries. In Korea, people celebrate the New Year by flying kites. In China, the ninth day of the ninth month is a holiday to honor kites. In Thailand, kite flying is a major league sport with kite flying championships held every spring. In India, “kite fighters” coat their kite's string with ground glass. The object is to cut the string of their opponent's kite!. As millions of kite enthusiasts pitch themselves at the rooftops, waves of flying kites overwhelm an otherwise deep blue sky.

Every year, the extraordinary fanfare associated with the paper works of art called kite brings people together from far and wide.

The kites fly by line or thread. The line is called “Manjha”, a glass coated thread and each flier attempts to cut every other kite out of the sky. They always make competition with each other. The last kite flying is the winner. In many of the states they do large scale of competition. Some of the competitions are last standing kite, some competitions are beautiful kites and some competitions are related to biggest kites.

Significance

The kite is flown during Spring Season.  In Sanskrit Vasanta means spring and Panchami is the fifth day of the fortnight of waxing moon (Shukla Paksha) in the Hindu month of Magh, January–February of English calendar.

In the Vedas the day of Vasanta Panchami is dedicated to Goddess Sarasvati. It is not a national holiday in India but the schools are closed and the students participate in decoration and arrangement of the worship place.

A few weeks before the celebration, schools become active in organizing various annual competitions of music, debate, sports and other activities. Prizes are distributed on the day of Vasanta Panchami. Many schools organize cultural activities in the evening of the Saraswati Puja day when parents and other community members attend the functions to encourage the children. Sarasvati is the goddess of learning. Sarasvati bestows the greatest wealth to humanity, the wealth of knowledge.

RDOET IN ACTION:

 As a part of this great festive event, RDOET (HAO India) provided with Kites alongwith the required thread called ‘Manja.

Children were overwhelmed and joyous to receive these colourful Kites with different sizes and designs with thread and roller to hold the thread. 

Children were also provided with snacks and they enjoyed the whole day happily flying kites.

Our Board Member has passion to serve for the children and He actively involves in all our HAO India  Programs. 

The Parents of the children are also very excited and it is a surprise which they did not expect. All of them extend their thankfulness to all our valued Donors of Global giving for their valuable support and lovely gifts of their heart’s desire.

On behalf of these children, we extend deep gratitude to the donors for their valuable support, without which these children would have not availed all these opportunities.

With all good wishes and seasons greetings!

"Literacy is a Fundamental Human Right." - International Literacy Day September 8th

Children with enthusiasm to celebrate literacyday
Children with enthusiasm to celebrate literacyday

RDOET ( HAO  India )

Project      :   Educate 900 Children in Hyderabad Slums (# 5290)

Report on  :   Literacy is a fundamental human right.” International Literacy Day – 8th September

Summary :  The project will enable 900 children to go send to school. In these areas  there is no electricity, clean water & proper shelter. Will provide for school needs, solar lamp & safe & clean water.

Background information of the identified Area:

The people living here are in pathetic situation, without any basic amenities like clean drinking water proper sanitation, no electricity and live in huts.  Main occupation of these communities is Garbagelifters, ragpicking.  Children are school dropouts not having proper education & they go for begging at Bus stops.

 Objective: 

  • To celebrate International Literacy Day – 8th September 2012 in dignity as a human being.
  • Provide Literacy material to the children
  • Motivate and mobilize Awareness on Literacy

Literacy is a fundamental human right and the foundation for lifelong learning. It is fully essential to social and human development in its ability to transform lives. For individuals, families, and societies alike, it is an instrument of empowerment to improve one’s health, one’s income, and one’s relationship with the world.

Literacy is a cause for celebration since there are now close to four billion literate people in the world. However, literacy for all – children, youth and adults - is still an unaccomplished goal and an ever moving target. A combination of ambitious goals, insufficient and parallel efforts, inadequate resources and strategies, and continued underestimation of the magnitude and complexity of the task accounts for this unmet goal. Lessons learnt over recent decades show that meeting the goal of universal literacy calls not only for more effective efforts but also for renewed political will and for doing things differently at all levels - locally, nationally and internationally.

International Literacy Day was proclaimed to be held every year on September 8th by the United Nations on November 17th, 1965. The first Literacy Day however was observed on 1966. The main aim behind starting a day on literacy was to spread awareness among individuals, communities and countries.

Why is literacy important?

Literacy is not only important to read and write but it leads to an overall more empowered society. Some of the reasons of importance of Literacy are:

  • “Right to Literacy” is a human right and a means for personal empowerment.
  •  It is important for social development.
  •  A literate society is the core of developing a society free of poverty, child mortality, population growth, gender equality, peace and development.

RDOET IN ACTION:

 RDOET (HAO India) distributed Books and reading material to all the children in this identified area. One of our Board Member has emphasized and enlightened awareness on literacy and importance of being a literate.  All children and parents were very much encouraged and taken as challenge to get at least basic education for their better standard as a fundamental right.

Children and parents are very excited to receive the material.  On behalf of these children and parents we extend our deep gratitude to all our valued Donors of Globalgiving for their valuable support for these down-trodden children of this community in particular.

Thanking you for your continued support!

 According to current estimates, 80% of all schools are government schools making the government the major provider of education. Because of poor quality of public education, Indian children are privately educated. A study found that schoolchildren in Hyderabad's slums attend private schools. However, others have suggested that private schools fail to provide education to the poorest families. In their favour, it has been pointed out that private schools cover the entire curriculum and offered extra-curricular activities such as science fairs, general knowledge, sports, music and drama. There is some disagreement over which system has better educated teachers. Even the poorest often go to private schools despite the fact that government schools are free.

Children were very happy to receive the School Material for the Academic Year 2012-2013.  Their parents are also very glad to see their children with new requirement.  This is all because of your valid generous support of Global Giving which encourages children go to school.  We extend our deep gratitude to all the donors and for the generosity.
