Sunita* with wonders in her Eyes
Sunita* with wonders in her Eyes

8 Years old little Sunita* has been a student in our Model School- Kishalaya Sishu Siksha Niketan ever since she joined. Resident of remote Nandakumarpur village in Mathurapur II block of Sunderbans infested South 24 Parganas district in West Bengal, India she is the only child of her Parents. Her father Sunirmal* is a marginal farmer with a very little tract of land they own. As the earnings are not sufficient to run all family expense only by cultivating in own land, he also works as Daily Wage labourer for cultivation in others’ fields in the vicinity. Sunita’s* mother is a homemaker and struggles with the enduring drudgery of finance steep.

Calm and quiet by nature Sunita* with wonders in eyes is always eager to learn new things. Ever since she was promoted to 3rd standard in 2021 academic session, she is eagerly waiting for the Computer Classes to start.

As per the rule of school Computer Training Education starts from 3rd Standard. But with continuing and increased spread of Covid-19 Pandemic all educational institutions are closed since long period. So do our school as well as the Computer Classes.

The only mode of communication with her teachers are the classes for major subjects of Vernacular, Maths, Science, Social Science etc. being carried by creating WhatsApp groups. With dire poverty in house Sunita’s* father can’t afford to buy Android Phone.

In this situation Sunita* sometimes sharing the Smart pone of a friend stays nearby. She is excited with this digital experience, but still remains at gloom without any phone of their own.

With the long starched closure along with many other kids of the School she is now eagerly waiting for the classes to start again – more specifically awaiting the First Experience of touching the Computers and Operate.

Learning and Meeting Friends after a long time...
Learning and Meeting Friends after a long time...

Friends! It has been long since we communicated last!

We have been finding time to share on our efforts. We were extremely busy for restoring the communications with the Kids and their learnings.

The long drawn closure of Institutions for the still continuing Pandemic Covid -19 our Computer Classes were closed.

We were accumulating all our strength...to reopen our Computer Classes… or… even if not at least reaching out to the little buds who are eagerly waiting….. to come and open the computers again.

Thus we started conducting our Computer Classes through distance learning mode. It created a wave of excitement among the little pupils who belong majorly to vulnerable marginalised families never thought of such kind of experience ever before. As most of the families don’t have any Smart Android Phones the teachers and local people volunteered their own smart phones to support the little minds restore to their education. WhatsApp groups were created and the communications for learning between the learners and teachers started.

Other subjects of the Model School ‘Kishalaya Sishu Siksha Niketan’ also thus started restoring through distance learning mode with Smart Phones.

With relaxations in closure some senior boys are gradually coming classes in person now. 

The gadgets for communicatiuons he Computers, Smart Phones are silently establishing the motto of ‘Access to Knowledge for All.’, thus grdually creating a revolution in the education system of remote Sunderbans villages. 

Yet we need to extend our efforts for many other such little buds in Sunderbans communities and ensure there access to knowledge!

In the still continuing uncanny situation we desperately need more support from all of you.

Please come forward in supporting the noble cause and spread the message toi as much people you can.
