India’s Independence Day : The midnight of August 15, 1947 is memorable for every Indian on Earth, as it is the time, when India gained Independence from the stranglehold of the British. The otherwise suppressed tri-colored Flag of India was given its due respect, when it was hoisted in the midnight on the Independence Day. Since then, the red-letter day is celebrated with pomp and gaiety, across the length and breadth of India. Cultural programs and flag-hoisting ceremonies are the predominant affair of the day, while colorful kites fill the sky in the evening, to symbolize freedom. People indulge themselves in remembering the heroes of the freedom struggle and pay homage to them.
Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers again."

The present educational system of India is an implantation of British rulers. Wood's Dispatch of 1854 laid the foundation of present system of education in India. Before the advent of British in India, education system was private one. With the introduction of Wood's Dispatch known as Magna Carta of Indian education, the whole scenario changed. The main purpose of it was to prepare Indian Clerks for running local administration. Under it the means of school educations were the vernacular languages while the higher education was granted in English only. British government started giving funds to indigenous schools in need of help and thus slowly some of the schools became government-aided. Contemplating on the new system which was introduced Mahatma Gandhi expressed his anguish in following words, "I say without fear of my figures being challenged successfully, that today India is more illiterate than it was fifty or a hundred years ago. The village schools were not good enough for the British administrator, so he came out with his program. I defy anybody to fulfill a program of compulsory primary education of these masses inside of a century. This very poor country of mine is ill able to sustain such an expensive method of education. Our state would revive the old village schoolmaster and dot every village with a school both for boys and girls."
Primary education :
The Indian government lays emphasis to primary education up to the age of fourteen years (referred to as Elementary Education in India.) The Indian government has also banned child labour in order to ensure that the children do not enter unsafe working conditions. However, both free education and the ban on child labour are difficult to enforce due to economic disparity and social conditions. 80% of all recognized schools at the Elementary Stage are government run or supported, making it the largest provider of education in the Country.
The parental community were amazed and full of gratitude for the bundle of Gifts the children have received in the form of School Material. The deprived down trodden society is praying to God for more number of privileges to the under privileged. Let’s all join our hands in this great venture of educating the destitutes, slum dwellers, rag pickers, begging alms, garbage cleaners and poverty stricken. Dr.(Mrs.) P. Usha Abraham, CEO, RDOET (HAO India)

Summary: The project will enable 900 children to go to school. In these areas there is no electricity, no clean water & without proper shelter. Will provide for school needs, solar lamp & safe & clean water, and awareness on communicable diseases and prophylactic measures.
About 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 people is joy riding on camels for children and elders with a minimum of Rs.5/- only which does meet their day to day neccesities. Some of the women folk go on cycle cart with the idol of their deity. They live very close to roadside with unhygiene condition, and do not have permanent occupuation like job and their children may easily be prone to dreadful skin diseases and many communicable diseases. HAO India in Action on the move against tuberculosis on WORLD TB DAY 24TH MARCH 2011: HAO India organized Health Awareness Program, on World TB World TB – March 24th 2011 related to hygiene, sanitation, cleanliness. As per the reports, TB kills someone approximately every 20 seconds — nearly 4,700 people every day, or 1.7 million in 2009 alone, according to the latest estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO). TB is second only to HIV as the leading infectious killer of adults worldwide. It is among the three greatest causes of death of women aged 15-44 and is the leading infectious cause of death among people with HIV/AIDS. Although a cure for tuberculosis (TB) has existed for more than half a century, TB is one of three leading causes of deaths worldwide due to infectious diseases. TB kills about 1.6 million people each year, while HIV/AIDS claims more than 2 million lives each year; malaria kills about 1 million people each year. We ventured into our identified area, where children are in unhygienic conditions, without proper sanitation, grimy as parents are garbage pickers and children are easily prone to skin diseases and other communicable diseases. These people are migrated from Maharashtra and Gujarat in search of livelihood and living beside the roadside for the last 10 years. Our program mainly focussed on hygienic conditions giving more focus on the dreadful killer disease Tuberculosis by method of: • Charts • Pamphlets • By Puppet show Based on the hygiene supplied soaps to all the children, elders for nearly about 100 people. The children jumped with joy and immediately were on implementing it by taking bath. These people are facing water scarcity and only once in a week they take bath. And even for drinking purpose, it is too hard to get a pot of drinking water. The highlight of the Puppet show was that it attracted all sections of people. We distributed fruits to elderly people and biscuits to the children. These people are leading a very pathetic way of life. When we approach, interacted, and enlightened about the health awareness they responded well and were so happy and very much grateful and thankful to HAO India and Global Giving for their kind concern showed towards them. Needs are many, we are just praying God for their basic essentials needs to be met and request for the generous donors to come forward and extend their valuable support for these down-trodden people. As we have started to serve in this area, we take the challenge and seek your contribution towards this project in uplifting these people for the Kingdom of God, and great Blessings to the Donors.
