Through your support of Seva Mandir's Send a Child in India to School for a Year Program, children such as Roshan, pictured in the yellow shirt, are given an opportunity that they may otherwise never get, to develop a love of learning.
Roshan studied at Losing Dhana Shiksha Kindra (previously known as Non Formal Education Centre) from the age of seven. He is now 12 years old and attends secondary school in Level 9. He loves learning and likes Hindi, Maths and English. The impact of the SK (Shiksha Kendra) does not stop with Roshan, however. His father is a labourer who fits water pipes so he is away from home a great deal; he encourages Roshan to go to school and has even said he will punish him if he does not attend - an indication of how much he values education for his son. Although his parents are not literate Roshan reads with his younger brother who is currently studying in the SK; he wants to encourage him to progress in school as well.
Thanks to your support of Seva Mandir's SKs, children like Sanjay who face numerous disadvantages that might keep them from ever attending school have the opportunity to receive an education and encourage their brothers, sisters and fellow community members to do the same. In this way, the impact of the Shiksha Kendras are felt beyond the walls of the classroom and create ripples of change for their whole community.
With your support, Seva Mandir hopes to create communities where every child has the opportunity to develop a love of learning. We thank you for your support of this program and children like Roshan.
