The meeting has been organized with the help of village leaders and few volunteers who think that community awareness work is their responsibilities also. As the village, school, children are all their related and to strengthen them and to give motivation to children and to engage parents to send their children to school, especially the girls.

”Do not watch the clock, do what it does, keep going.”

- Sam Levenson

Till date GVT has organized 15 village level meeting, and out of the all meeting total participants were 337. The participants are village leaders, School Management Committee (SMC) members, Panchayat members, parents, aanganwadi workers, Asa workers, school head teachers and other teachers of the school.

The agenda has been discussed, to send all the children to school regularly, the importance of education and importance of regular attendance. Importance of girl child education, community engagement in school, SMC engagement in school, identification of few faliya members who can look after the children not coming to school regularly and who can motivate the parents to send their children to school regularly.

The changes has been seen that the girl child education has been increased, the parents who do not wish to send their girls child in school for higher studies, in Padal village all the girls has been enrolled in 9th standard. Which has been great achievement for thevillage.

Still we have to reach miles to go, support us in making the villages empower and especially the girls.

Happy Faces

Dear Donors,

Greetings from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch (GVT). The project Give a girl a future is running smoothly. Here are few updates about the project.

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

- Charles Spurgeon

The girls from the interior villages, who are poor, whose parents have less interest in education, less teaching and learning environment in school and other difficulties which make her less interested in studies and also become irregular in school as well as drop out from school. GVT has initiated different activities to motivate parents, girls, teachers and community to build up a strong awareness in teaching and learning.

The girls are benefited from different material help which can help them in their studies. As well for the awareness part the field officers are really getting in touch with the community members who can be the change agent for the community. The girls education has to be improve and it will make a huge change in the society.

The girls are happily coming to school, but there are lot more challenges still there, let help GVT in making the girls faces happier.

Stars can't Shine without Darkness

Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch (GVT) helps the girl children for smooth teaching learning environment. The girls after primary education or pre-primary education go for their further studies at nearby villages. Many villages are far, more than 3 km. The girls usually go by walking to reach to the schools. The drop out ratio and irregularity in schools has observed frequently.

For this cause GVT is providing bicycles to the needy girls, who faces difficulty in reaching to the schools, to reduce the ratio of drop outs from school, to reduce the irregularity in school, for the girls’ security.

GVT frequently provides bicycles to these girls, recently GVT has given bicycles to 10 girls from Moti-Jamboi, and it has identified other girls which will be provide in next month. There are number of girls who dropped out due to distance, parents also feels insecure as they have to walk by lonely ways and other issues.

“Stars can’t Shine without Darkness.”

GVT has seen the benefits of bicycles, first it has reduce the drop out ratio, many girls were not studying as they have to walk, so they just dropping out from school after they complete their schooling in their villages. Second, the irregularity in school, GVT has seen such girls due to distance they become very irregular in school, which becomes a habit for them, for the small reason they do not attend school for few days and again they become regular, so the learning affects very much. The teacher are sharing that after providing bicycles the girls become regular. The other major reason is parents feel insecure as the girls have to walk miles alone from the lonely area, GVT has suggest to the girls and parents after giving bicycles that always go and come in group.

The bicycle project is really helpful for the girls to get the education, there are lot more girls who still feels insecure and dropping out from school, you can support for their bright future. And these girls are shining though they are poor.
