Delivered Online Education To Snehalaya Child

We all know that during the last year of lockdown, there was an adverse effect on schools and education. All these conditions caused great damage to the children's studies. As a solution to all this, online education was found. Teachers in all schools tried their best for the study of children.An online education system has been launched to enable our children in the slum areas of Snehalaya to have night schools as well as English medium schools and at present it is going on.

 We should never forget that, As Malala said “One book, one pen, one child & one teacher can change the world”. 

 As you know, at Balbhavan we work on to deliver basic education to Sevavasti [slum] Childs those are from Ahmednagar & outside also. It makes a very perfect blend of education, health & value education. Also In our school we work on to deliver education in English Medium. We are working whole heartedly with a single goal in mind to promote education for brighter career & also reform each student to face the outside world.

The real game changer here is "Teacher".  A qualified, trained, passionate, affectionate and a teacher who loves his/her profession can shift the paradigm of the entire education system.

Friends all of us need to “plan the work & also work the plan”. We need to improve ourselves every day.Balbhavan & School teachers are an excellent example of this. Their usual endeavor is to provide these Childs with the necessary, useful & skillful education for lead their life.  Our teachers are taking advantage of the opportunity of lockdown and give the children a chance to smile and realize the dream. On this occasion, teachers have created a whatsapp group of each center. And busy in sending projects, assignments, activities and e-content to children through online medium so that children can utilize them. This is a golden opportunity for teachers to upgrade themselves for Childs development. They are specializing in the field of on-line teaching, e-content, self-creation of videos, lesson plans and assignments. 

Everyone have unlimited time lab like home and all the resources of the world readily available on the Internet. The entire houses were using as a learning center for children. Childs were busy in E-classes, projects, activities, fun, games, video shoots and a lot of such activities. Teachers are sharing various useful videos using you tube channel. There will not be golden opportunity like this again to fulfill Childs hobbies and interests.  So our child are studied  through online classes, they are enjoying  music, dance, drama, playing, singing, speech/declamation, theater, dress designing, interior designing, drawing, painting, robotics and other courses. Also children’s are making small videos of these activities and send them to teachers & friends also. They are busy in creating new lyrics, songs, albums, dialogues, poems, stories, plays, novels, diaries, reportage, jokes, speeches using their creativity. Also our teachers take daily assembly for inculcating value education among children.  These activities not only increase their creativity, sensitivity, festivity, tolerance and humanity but also eliminate (the feeling of) violence, stress, depression and frustrations.  We believe most growing success is nothing but inner fire. It is Snehalaya which is always helped to Childs to find that inner fire in this Childs. Balbhavan & School has been nurturing students not only with talent but also with extracurricular activities.Turning this difficult time into an opportunity, we are trying to turn every house into a learning and skill center. Our teachers are always striving for the development of our children. Each of the children and activists took care of their own health as well as the health of the parents and children in the service area and took care of the corona by fulfilling their responsibility to reach the doorstep of education. Not to be outdone!!!

The most special thing is that no one has yet faced a crisis like Corona in the service area where we are functioning. This is the ideal thing for everyone.On the one hand, the country is fighting to overcome Corona; while on the other hand, the students who are shaping the future of this country are studying so that their education is not disrupted. This determination will help these children to reach the peak of success in the future. For this, the activists of Balbhavan & school are working hard for the development of children without thinking of themselves and it will continue to do so.

Fight Against Covid-2019

 

The residents of a slum have been living under a constant, unsettling threat of eviction. Developed under the central government scheme in India, the slum redevelopment project in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra is collaboration between the slum dwellers, Snehalaya and CSDC. Residents of Sanjaynagar are active participants in the design process.

Sanjaynagar is a slum in Ahmednagar city in Maharashtra, home to 298 families. The redevelopment plan addresses the need for formal housing for these families, while also providing safe and adequate community spaces, preserving the strong social fabric and bonding of the community. 

As the first in-situ slum development project in this district, the initial focus of CSDC and its partners has been on trust building and empowering the residents of the slum to take on the development and construction of their homes. The apartments have been designed with the help of the residents such that they allow for multiple iterations and combinations based on the needs of the families. To retain the social fabric of the slum, the G+2 buildings have been designed around seven courtyards of varying sizes, a community center, gymnasium, a government-run creche or aanganwadi, shops, etc.

While slum redevelopment in itself may be rather mainstream, the Sanjaynagar project has been developed with design, social and financial components unique to the needs and aspirations of the community. The success of this participatory model has the potential to impact housing policies and help build thousands of such thoughtfully designed communities in the future.

 

Community Representatives (CRs) are young men and women from the Sanjaynagar Slum who help with the work at the slum redevelopment site and act as facilitators between the residents and the architects from CSDC. During the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown, most families lost their livelihood and were struggling to feed themselves. The CRs rose to the occasion and helped galvanise resources to help their neighborhood survive the hardships.

 Her mother was raped by her own cousin and she became pregnant with Bhakti.  After she was born, we found that she was a low birth weight baby. Further investigations revealed that she also had ‘Laryngomalacia” a condition in which there is a hole in the wall lining the wind pipe and the food pipe. This created problems in her breathing as well as swallowing. She was operated upon for this condition by a renowned pediatric surgeon and received excellent medical care. She has now been adopted by parents in Mumbai.

2. Kunal – [Name Change]

 Kunal was a low birth weight premature baby and needed utmost care and medical aid. He has a rare condition of absence of one external ear called ‘Anotia’. Both the mother and Kunal were abandoned by the relatives ad had nowhere to go. So the baby was relinquished by the mother to Snehankur while she was given shelter in our Women’s shelter Snehadhar. Kunal has been adopted and will be going in a happy family in USA. 

3. Shruti – [Name Change]

 Shruti’s mother was HIV positive but received treatment at Snehalaya through our hospital throughout her pregnancy. So Shruti was born HIV negative but had tuberculosis.  She was given complete treatment and has been now adopted by parents in the US.

 

Adoption of a child is a beginning of the new relations as we have also adopted each other as our extended family members.
