Today I want to share with you the story of Radha, a child from one of our education centre and also a video of our education program.
Radha joined Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra (Education Centre) in Basiwada hamlet in July 2008 and completed her education in July 2012. After finishing level 3 from Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra with eight other girls, she was keen to join government school in class VI.
Principal of the local government school denied them admission since the education structure of the Shiksha Kendra was different from that of government. Radha and her friends wanted to continue their education so they pursued Seva Mandir staff for help and support.
Seva Mandir team led by Mr. Mangilal helped Radha and her friends with the school admission. They explained the principal that the education program of Seva Mandir is approved by Government. They also explained the Principal that as per Right to Education Act, which ‘makes provisions for a non-admitted child to be admitted to an age appropriate class,’ every school is liable to follow it.
Radha proved her talent and mantel when she stood first in class VI by scoring 60% marks.
Before joining Shiksha Kendra, Radha used to work in her family fields. Today she dreams of becoming a teacher and educate girls like herself for a bright future.
