By Rajni Kumari - Field Staff
Mainstreaming Out of School Child
SUGAM JAGRITI has been initiated with mission To Create Awareness in the social life to establish exploitation less, Injustice less, Classless, uniform and self reliant society. Objective of the Programme: The main objective of this programme is to reach up to the Children of labourers and challenged children and help them in association with formal education and there after making them skilled and self sufficient. Child labourers as well as challenged children on different types of labour work all require a strong base in education and access to quality education. In case of school dropouts parents and children need to be continuously counseled and encouraged to go back to school. The education programs designed at SUGAM JAGRITI recognize this need and aim to bridge this gap.
Story of Change
Rani Kumari (Name Changed) age : 9 years, d/o Rajendra Das living at Village: Gulzarbag, P.S: Islampur, Dist. Nalanda. Parents are landless and fulfil two square meal of the family by labour work. They were not aware of importance of education. They had engaged her children in labour work in whole day. Their thinking was, there is no benefits of children education and if, they engage children in labour work she can earn for the family.
Than Rajani Kumari the staff of Sugam Jagriti sensitized and counselled her parents and compelled them to send Rani Kumari to school. After repeated counselling parents finally understand the importance of children education. The Sugam Jagriti staffs organized meeting in the village and sensitized her parents and rest villagers on importance of education. The staffs also sensitized her parents and villagers on primitive age education style and teacher and students relations. Finally parents enrolled Rani Kumari name in nearest school.
Now Rani’s parents are sensitive to children education. Their attitude and behaviour towards children education has changed favourably. . They have great faith on children education and now they are also sensitizing the neighbours on importance of children education and sensing the children to school regularly. We have provided educational Materials, School Bag etc. and enrolled them in school.
We are really thankful to Donor, GlobalGiving & Sugam Jagriti for the kind of effort they have put into my child's education".
