This project seeks to facilitate 100 Tribal children with supply of Nutritional supplements, educational materials, special coaching and life skills education in the evening so as to empower them for a general development and prevent child labor slavery among the tribal community living in Kurinji Nagar, Thoddappanaickanur Panchayat, Usilampatty Taluk, Madurai district, India.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Tribal people in Kurinji Nagar are the landless, illiterate and highly ignorant, and live in abject poverty. They collect honey and herbs for their livelihood which are seasonable. Due to official mechanism the benefits of welfare schemes never reach them. Only proper education would empower them and bring a change in their lives. Masters Trust made a humble beginning to educate the tribal children and help them emerge as responsible citizens and change making agents to their community.
How will this project solve this problem?
Proper supply of nutritional supplements and educational materials would be ensured to the children to motivate them for regular attendance to schools. The Teachers would clarify their doubts and coach them the subjects like Mathematics, Science and English which determine the future of the children. In addition, they will be given Life Skills Education and periodical health-check up and supply of medicines so as to bring a wholistic development.
Potential Long Term Impact
The Staff of Masters Trust will check the attendance of tribal children once a week. The supply of educational materials, Life Skills Education and periodical health check up would give the children a sense of self worth in par with the mainstream children and thus they are no more discriminated. The Teachers would revise the subjects learnt in the class room and make their learning easier to perform well in studies which would ensure their regular attendance to school.
