SAMPARC always believe true education is the real passport for the growth and development of a child. The biggest drawback of rural area is lack of proper education and awareness regarding this. The growth of the children remains restricted because of no proper support from the parents, poverty, lack of proper food and heath. SAMPARC - a partner of Habitat for Humanity has developed an English Medium School in the premises of Jimmy Carter Housing Project at Patan Village near Lonavla.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The location of the school and surrounding villages are on hilly area and transportation in those areas is very difficult. Earlier people used to do only firming - one time in a year. Presently with the development of modern communication system, the villages are linked with near by cities. But the distance of the school is the same. And the children remain deprived of the modern education. Nearest school is 2 km away and there is no English medium school for poor rural children.
How will this project solve this problem?
However, due to efforts of SAMPARC all these villages are having their 100% children attending the schools, but the poor education standards of Govt. schools does not fulfill all the developmental needs of children and thus create huge gap to be fulfilled. Now the requirement is to provide them better level of education with highest of standard including physical & mental growth at the nearest possible place. So SAMPARC Abhinav English Medium School has been established to fulfill all the needs.
