My self Satish and i have done PTC. In my village primary school there is only 4 teachers for 1st to 8th std teaching children of more than 200.

Due to shortage of regular teacher i found few children are dropped out as there is no any activities in their class. Gram Vikas Trust got massage that there is a shortage of teacher in my school and they interviewd me and place me in my own primary school where i have study upto 7th std.

I am proud to be para teacher in my own village and school. It gives me sence of ownership when i teaches my village children in my school. I enjoy teaching children.

Beingin school as a Para teacher It need to be more focus while dealing with sensitive students, I am learning new things from them as time has changed a lot from myschooling days.Children are much more intelligent than we were;Iti sgood experience so far teaching students in myvillage primaryschool.

I am envolve with the children and they obey me very well and give respect. I am also helpful the children after school if they need any educational guidance. This will help children to more regular in the school and also help to reduce dropped out children.

“The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.”

 Ajay said that, “you have supported me by paying my tuition fees and all the other expenses for my higher studies, I will also help other needy students in future.” Ajay is studying in second year of B. Com. Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) is supporting Ajay from last two years for his higher studies. He wants to become a Chartered `Accountant (CA). He is good in studies. He has lost his parents years ago and now he lives with his grandparents in a small hut. Financial condition of his family is too poor. His grandfather is owning a small business of blacksmith, and does some small work of their village. Ajay also helps his grandfather in his work. Ajay’s grandfather wants his grandson to make him study further and change the family’s financial condition.

There are many needy students in Vagra block. Vagra is one of the blocks of Bharuch district (Gujarat, India), in which, there are many land losers. As Special Economic Zone has emerged in Vagra near the coastal area, and many farmers and land owners has lost their lands. In spite of losing their lands many of them have not received any amount or jobs. Some villages have worst condition, people has got the jobs but they won’t be able to change their situation in longer days.

GVT is supporting different students who are willing to study further and motivates other students to study further. But still GVT is not able to reach to all the needy students. GVT wants you to support for these unreached students to make their future bright.

GVT will always welcome your suggestions and ideas for better functioning, so that it will reach to many students and educate the youth.

Tomorrow's future!

Creating a Lasting Change

Dear donors!

I am really glad to share the progress report of the project “Riding towards the Future”. This project has supported many girls from the interior villages of Jhagadia Block, district Bharuch (Gujarat, India). We have shared earlier about the background of these girls and the community, they are mainly tribal community, depends on agricultural wages and in nearby small scale industrial area.

The male dominant society, basically do not study further after primary education and fall into evil practices like consumption of alcohol, chewing tobacco and so on. Parents also do not wish to make their children study further and send them to earn for their lives and for the families. Similarly most of the girls are also not appreciated to study further, they only study up to 5th standard or 8th standard (pre-primary and primary education) in their villages. If we look at the current scenario of these villages, there are primary schools at the village level, for higher studies they have to visit other villages.

We have found some facts: 1) The parents are not aware about the importance of education, 2) Very interior villages and the high schools are far away, 3) less teachers in government schools, 4) parents cannot afford the educational expenses, 5) health related issues and so on.

Though GVT has succeeded at some level, many girls have started getting higher education, parents also wish that their children get education, GVT has provided Para-Teachers in some of the schools to fill the gaps.

GVT is celebrating its 15 years in the field, GVT is in the process of a strategic planning for the coming five years of 2016-20. GVT is mainly focusing on education, water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, sustainable livelihood, food, nutrition and health for the well-being of the underprivileged community specially women and children. These 15 years have taught us lot of things and it has been taken up into our action and many more things need to learn from these vast experience.

For the strategic planning of the coming years, GVT has started taking interviews and using other methods interacting with beneficiaries and stakeholders. GVT is keen to know about its change it has been made up in the community, or where it has to be focus more.

GVT will be very happy for the suggestions or inputs from the donors in the process of strategic planning, and also thanking them for their valuable support till now.
