Dear all,

Regards from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch.

Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) is one of the leading organization working for the socio-economic development of the communities especially for the marginalized people in the area of education, health & hygiene, food & nutrition and sustainable livelihood. Education is the prior aim of GVT, with the help of local government from years it has been taken place. Providing para teacher in the school where there is shortage of teachers, school kits (books, school bags, uniforms, etc.), scholarship to needy students, bicycles for girls (for longer distance schools from village) and other supports related to education.

From the inception of GVT, it has been observed that the tribal people does not give importance to education, parents remains busy with their agricultural work and children do not attend school or roam around in the village. Few students complete 12th or graduation, else study till 7th or 8th standards. Though they completes their 8th standards, they rarely attend school and so that the relation with the school or interest in study does not become strong and they become irregular in school or get dropped out.

To tackle this issues, GVT has started exploring Community Leaders, those people who are positive about the village’s development. The aim is to get every child in school, to shape children’s future and to strengthen the school governance. These people are from the village only, may be a parent of a student or may be a youth or can be an old person from the village, or can be a mother or young lady. These identified Community Leaders will help us in regularizing children to attend the school.

In 8 villages of Jhagadia block we have identified such community leaders and they have started working without a penny for the betterment of the village, school and children. These Leaders check out that any single child do not remain home for playing or wandering around, they talk to their parents and motivate them to send their children regularly in school. GVT believes that if a child miss a single day in school it will be difficult for child to concentrate, sometimes they avoid to attend school as they feel that teacher will scold them. A single day lead them to get dropped out from school.

GVT does not only provide the materials but tries to develop the mentality of the community, tries to strengthen the school governance and tries to engage people through community participation so that at the long term it may impact more and a better future of each children, of the society.

Please give us feedback or suggestion so that we can improve our work, and do let us help to help the society.

From Darkness to Light

“Black color is sentimentally bad, but every black board makes the students life bright.”

- Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

As the academic year has started, we have identified few girls who are from very interior villages, Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) will provide these girls bicycles for travelling purpose, so that they can reach school and come back home safely. Those villages which are very interior and less or no transport facilities, GVT contact to the local bodies which may help us in finding the needy girls. Mostly the school Head Teachers help us in this process. The other village level stakeholders also help us in the process, so that GVT can reach out to the needy ones.

This year GVT has identified 34 girls from different villages. Those girls who are bright in studies, wanted to study further, their parents cannot afford the cost of their studying materials, one parent child or orphan children. GVT will provide them some educational materials and bicycles so that they can continue their studies.

All the 34 identified girls are from standard 9th to 12th, and all of them are interested in studying further. They may not be able to study further if GVT did not helped them with the bicycles. As the problem is transportation, in the remote villages they will not get any transportation facilities and parents are not capable to send them in private vehicles.

There are many more girls who won’t be able to join their higher studies, GVT always try to full fill the gaps of the society. GVT also request the local government officials as the government bicycle scheme may also help them.

GVT request you people to get back to us and help us in this noble cause, also share this with your friends and relatives so that many people can know the issue and help these little girls to achieve their goals and to create a better India a better society.
