Progress Report - child labor rehabilitation

Dear Esteemed Patrons,

Greetings to you from Health Education Adoption Rehabilitation Development Society (HEARDS) - India!

It gives us immense pleasure and happiness to submit the progress report in front of you all.  The following are the progress happened during this quarter which I am submitting it for your kind perusal.

DIFFERENT EXPOSURES MADE IN THE CENTRE

HEARDS conducts various exposures energetically with varieties of activities so that children engaged in the rehabilitation centers activities may not drop the course in between. This year the main focus was drawn through group discussion, learning safety rules, reading dailies, pronunciation, calligraphy and drawing. The new mechanism adapted in the center was to inculcate both hard and soft skills among the working children. For that children were divided into small groups and a name was given to them to develop their team spirit. A leader was selected to guide the groups. This paved the way for developing leadership skills among the children.  Through the group discussion held during the camp made the children develop inter personal skills among them.  Children were made to recite poems and space was given for solo singing. Narrating stories made them enthusiastic and zealous in taking part actively in the center.

MAINSTREAMING OF CHILDREN INTO THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

During the month of May, 2016, teachers from HEARDS rehabilitation centers have tremendously organized and conducted Annual Examination by framing questions of their own and made them qualify to join higher classes as per their age. As the school academic year has started by mid of June, the process of rejoining them to Government schools has taken one month because of the admission numbers and other formalities regarding the admission. During the current year we were able to mainstream 60 children into the Government schools successfully.

UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION

To keep us the uniformity and standard and to maintain the regulations the children were provided with two set of uniforms for the children.  They were provided uniforms for their daily wear in school. These valuable gestures by DONORS is a way of making these deprived children that they are also important and have the right of being happy like other normal children.

CONCLUSION AND GRATITUDE

It is not merely a project, it is indeed an experience with poor and working children, in fact a transformation process initiated in the lives of the marginalized children in the slums of Chittoor. The initiative need to continue some more time until it has established a footing of its own. The project team is committed to sustain the good work. The beneficiary children and their parents are very grateful for the generosity and kind help of PATRONS. With a deep sense of gratitude and hope for a future of working children this progress report is submitted.

Thanking you all,

With best wishes and fond regards,

The main vision and mission of the project is to eradicate child labor and to achieve children education, equity & liberation for all deprived communities to access and control over the resources, information and knowledge that is needed for the holistic growth of each individual and also become meaningful person in the community to work towards meaningful development in this society.

By the support we are getting from people like you we are gathering funds to arrange for the fuel and driver of the vehicle in order to ferry the children from their home to the rehabilitation centre and vice versa. This helped us a lot now to transport the children without any sort of hindrances. We would be grateful if you could kindly support us towards the maintenance of the vehicle for travelling of kids.


Thanking you all,

With best wishes and fond regards,

Progress Report

Learning with education materials

Dear Esteemed Patrons,

Seasonal Greetings to you from Health Education Adoption Rehabilitation Development Society (HEARDS) – India!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for donating to support working children education in Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh, INDIA.   We are overwhelmed with your support towards this inevitable project. Due to the grinding poverty in the families, which forces the children into labor at tender ages, majority of the children are primary school drop-outs, while some of them are illiterate. They are thus deprived of the basic right to education. The main objective of the project is to provide education facilities for the rescued child laborers from Chittoor. All the targeted 50 children within the age-group of 6-14 years and belonging to SC, ST and minority communities are the target-groups of the proposed project. 40% of the targeted children are the girl children belonging to backward communities. All the targeted children belong to poor families. Their fathers are the landless laborers whose income is too meager to meet the educational expenses of their children.

We are giving proper care, guidance and education to the children through various activities and programmes. We have good and committed staffs who take care to address the needs of the children especially regarding the educational improvement in them.  This year once again we have started to adopt more innovative teaching methods in mathematics and science.  For language we are trying this with the help of computers as it has given a drastic change for the children during the previous years.

We are also trying the child to equip with knowledge, skills, values and rights that would help him achieve personal development. This education should give him an insight into the socio-economic circumstances, which have led his family to send him to lead a life, which should be certainly better than that of a bonded laborer. He should also learn to aspire for a better future for himself, his peers and his family.

Teachers are giving additional coaching for children, individual attention given in the center through dedicated teacher helping to bring them from the attitude of earning and working interest to learning different subjects. The children have forgotten to read and write due to long gap of schooling, now they are showing interest to read and write in the group, giving interest in each grade subjects.

For the kind note of the patrons we were seeking more educational materials towards the teaching of the children in innovative way. These active based learning methodology helps these children to learn by way of play way method. So therefore I request you to kindly support us in order to increase the educational standard of our children.

Thanking you all,

 

With best wishes and fond regards,
