Motasanja is a small village 4kms away from Jhagadia block, Bharuch district, Gujarat. In Motasanja there is only one Government Primary School which is up to 5th standard. There is no proper road which connects Jhagadia. All the villagers have to travel 4kms by walk from fields if they want to go to Jhagadia for studies or any other work. Many students from this village do not continue their studies after 5th standard because of this reason.
Jagruti is one of the best examples for many girls and other villagers. After completing 5th standard she wished to continue her studies. She herself motivated her classmates to continue their studies in Jhagadia. Many girls were not ready as well their parents. Somehow 4 girls from her batch got ready for further studies and also accompanied Jagruti. They have to walk 8kms everyday to reach school. Gram Vikas Trust has helped her and other 4 girls through giving them bicycles. All those girls are very happy and regular at schools. They do not have to walk and it is very easy for them to visit school.
Jagruti shared that God has helped her through this bicycle; the hard days has gone and it is the blessings of the God that he showers his blessings on her and her friends. The donor who helped her is the God for her. She also shared that she will work hard and complete her studies and will become a good person so that she also can help someone who is in need.
It is rightly said by Aristotle,”The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.” Jagruti is now facing bit trouble to get educate; she got the bicycle and also happy but she has to travel the same 4kms regularly, which will give her the sweet fruits.
May god bless her for her bright and fruitful future.
Thanks and regards to the donors for their continuing support to these birds, for giving them the wings.
Komal (name changed) has thanked the unknown donors for their supports in her education.
She is very bright and wanted to study further in Medical line. It is very hard for her parents to manage all children’s educational cost and meet other needs of the family. Komal’s father is an agricultural wage laborer and her mother too. They both work hard to feed the stomach of the family but somehow they are not able to fulfill the educational expenses of all three children. Komal has completed 12th and wanted to study further in Medical line, Priyank (name changed) and Aniruddha (name changed) are younger than Komal and studying in 11th and 9th.
Komal’s parents are illiterate, from a very poor family and they don’t know the importance of the education, as in patriarchy society, girls don’t allow to choose things at her own, parents are not interested for her further study. But Komal is very keen to study further and change the situation of her family.
She has been supported last year and worked hard, also she got good percentage. She has applied for MBBS and also for Physiotherapy.
A hearty thanks to the donors that their generous support has made someone to think for their future and get educate to change their lives.
Best wishes for Komal!!

The project has helped many girls in villages of our project area in rural Gujarat. The girls are supported to continue their education without any constrain. We are supporting education of 22 girls at present, through this project. The girls have recently completed their board exams. They are very happy as their exams were good. The results are awaiting now. They could prepare well for examinations, as our support to their educational needs.
Recently we met those girls and it was said that the reference books, guides and other stuff provided by us helped them a lot during exam preparation. The children asked the same support for their further studies. It is very difficult for their parents to support for more education, but it’s us who can avail them education to full fill their dreams of becoming teacher, policeman, and nurses someday.
This year in the next academic year, we are aiming to support more girls who are needy and underprivileged in interior villages. Our team is working hard to reach out these girls and do as much as we can in best possible way.
Thanks to all the donors for their continuous support. Let’s donate more and promote Girl child Education in rural Gujarat.
