Turn Walls in to Doors..

Greetings from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch.

“Support from your side has saved my carrier, otherwise I was not able step on to college.” Said one of our child who has got support from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch. Sahil (Name changed) from one of the villages of Vagra block is doing his First Year of BA. After giving examination of 12th he started cattle grazing, as there is no single hope of his further studies. His father is a daily wages laborer in a small company. His mother was passed away when he was very young. Sahil has one elder brother, who has left studies due to economic condition of family.

“Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.”

 - Unknown

Sahil was good in studies from the primary education. He was going to left his further studies but the government teachers have supported him to get admission and some educational materials was provided till 12th. From the scholarship he was buying some text books, note books and rest of the money give to his father. In the vacation time to support his father he used to go for cattle grazing and earn some money.

His father is not very educated, and his only hope that Sahil can get good education and change family’s situation. From one of the government teachers we come to know about Sahil. Now Sahil is one of the children who is getting educational help from Gram Vikas Trust.

Still there are many children who are not able to step in to college or higher studies because of the economic condition of the families. We are trying to support as much children who are willing to study but there is no means of support.

You also can support one of these children to brighten their future.

Building Bridges..

Dear donors,

Greetings from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch.

Education is all a matter of building bridges.

- Ralph Ellison

Jhagadia is one of the tribal blocks in Gujarat state. The Vasava tribal people are very much shy in nature and honest. Most of the people in this community are engaged in agricultural activities, cattle grazing and few families work in small scale industries nearby the villages. Education in the block is very less; most of the children are first generation learner.

Many families do not let the girl child study after the primary education, as the reason of transportation. The schools are far from the villages and the girls do not study after the primary education and get married at the very small age.

Gram Vikas Trust working for the betterment of the society is providing bicycles to the needy girls so that they cannot get dropped out after primary education and continues their study for their personal growth.

Till now Gram Vikas Trust has provided numbers of bicycles to the needy girls to attend school after the primary education. It has seen that Gram Vikas Trust has able to make a small change in the lives of the people.

Gram Vikas Trust is thankful to the donors for their continuous supports, still there are many needy girls who need your support.

“The purpose of the education is to open an empty mind with an open one”

I am sharing you a success story of a village called Karad nearby Jhagadia block. In this village there is school up to 5th standard and the students after completing 5th standard used to go to nearby village, which is Jhagadia, Jhagadia is 4km away from the village. The condition of the community is not that much good, most of the parents work as agricultural laborer there is no other means of livelihood. Almost the full village falls in Below Poverty Line.

As we surveyed this village, we have provided 16 bicycles to the needy girls. These girls were studying in standard 6th and standard 7th. When we interviewed some families we come to know that the road is very much difficult to travel as there is no proper road to come out from the village, all the people have to come from the lonely fields. So the parents did not feeling safe to send their children school. Most of the parents not sending their children to school after 5th standard. And those who enrolled their children in to school were very irregular. The school staff shared that these girls are very much irregular in the school and so that in study also they are poor.

After one year again we have interviewed the families and school staff and it is really good to share that the things which was measured as a problem/issue is now solved. The parents are happy to send their children to school as they got the company of 16girls, all the girls from the village goes to school together and come back to home together. Teacher have also shared that these girls have become regular in the school. These girls also give lift to the girls who do not have bicycles.

We have seen the self confidence in the girls, while interacting with them. They are now dreamed to study further, which is the most important aspect which we were aiming.

Thanks to the donors who have supported to these needy girls, still there are many girls who is not able to continue her studies because of such simple reasons. Your generous support will change someone’s life.
