Don't stop, until you are done...

Hello donors,

Regards from Gram Vikas Trust (GVT), Bharuch.

Today, it was time to share few success. Somehow the para teachers are making a huge difference in the villages. After the Diwali vacation in school, it was assumed that many children will not attend the school on first two weeks, as there are not teaching happen in these weeks, the school cleaning activity, and other administration work of the teacher force the teacher to remain busy in such activities. Also there is election ahead, and almost all the primary teachers are busy in the meeting and training of election.

“Don’t stop when you are tired, stop when you are done.”

Such issues has been faced from years, and during the para teacher meeting all the issues has been shared to them, which they have also faced in their villages. It was not planned by GVT but the para teacher has planned to do some activities during the vacation time to make them engage with the study. They planned to play with the children in the faliyas, different games, and visit of children parents to motivate them and to send their children to school regularly. They have also planned different cultural activities to perform during the first week of school, during the school assembly celebration, different sports activities after the mid-day-meal in school.

The best thing was few of the para teachers have thought to clean the school, as most of the students do not attend school as they have to clean the school. So few of the para teachers engaged some of the parents and other village youth and clean the school the day before school reopens. Also they spread the message to all the children.

The success is most of the children in project school have attended the school on first week, the government teachers shared that such attendance has been seen first time in their teaching career.

There are lot many problem which make the children away from school, but the para teachers are making difference to the children life. Let us join hands in making the difference.

Dream Big

During the field visit, I met Apporva (Name Changed) from one of the project villages. Apoorva has completed his 12th from Navoday Vidhyalaya with science stream. He is good in studies from the primary education, and because of this he could get admission in one of the top school. In which he has completed his studies up to 12th class. Navoday Vidhyalaya does not take fees and the education is good in this school, which is run by central government.

Apoorva’s father is wage laborer, and his mother also works as agricultural work. The family condition is not good. After completing the 12th Apoorva wanted to go for higher studies, with science stream, but his father does not able to afford all the expenses for his further studies. Though he is good in studies there was not any other option for his further studies. He shared that he has joined Industrial Training Institute (ITI) as he wanted to continue his education.

He has started educating children of his faliya (street), and also supports them in their daily classes, home works. Apoorva has seen big dreams for his future but somehow he has to manage some of his dreams due to poverty.

There are many children who are bright in studies, but due to different challenges they have to skip their dream. Apoorva is one of the bright student but he has not able to complete all his wishes.

Support such children, to dream big for their bright future.

Do it Now!!

The main objective of these games and activities are to motivate children through games, the children teach some educational lesson by different activities.

In the rural areas, especially in the tribal belt the children do not used to give some time in studying or other education related activities, and after the school reopens the children do not remember the lessons taught before the vacation. Which demotivates the children as well as the teachers to repeat all the things. The teachers also feel difficult to complete all the course and lessons, so that they also feel demotivated to teach.

GVT has started vacation time activities, so that the children can remain in touch with their studies, the activities are also designed not much difficult and also related to their studies. In this activities the local people are joining, so that the children and some of the volunteers can get help of them.

GVT is trying to bridge the gap between the community and school, the school is their responsibilities and the betterment of the school will help them in the overall development of the village by educating each child.
