Teacher & students at the Kaliyachak Girls School
The School is Adding a Daily Lunch
Every morning the students at the Kaliyachak Girls School recite a non-denominational prayer and the preamble of the constitution of India. The recitation is led by one of the students.
School days are still very short, just two and a half hours, but continue critical education and recreation for these girls. The school is also adding a nutritious lunch of high nutrition, high energy foods to augment the girls' diet as food insecurity in the Nalanda district has increased during the pandemic.
FORRAD is assisting the school's teachers in improving lesson plans and adding new perspectives via songs on girls, freedom and human rights. The newest song – Mandir Masjid Girjaghar ne baant liya Bhagwan ko, dharti baanti, sagar baanta, mat baanto insaan ko – talks about how the division of people on the basis of religion is entirely politically motivated, and while religion and oceans and lands have been divided, people should not divide.
