developments happened during this quarter

Dear Donors,

First of all let me thank you for supporting the best and the inevitable project on rehabilitaiton of child laborers which is carried out by HEARDS.  The developments during this quarter are as hereunder:

Education Programme

HEARDS Rehabilitation Centre for child laborers is following "Non-formal system of education" where students and teachers live together and work to gain new knowledge and experience.  At the primary level children have many difficulties in reading and writing in their languages correctly, in understanding math concepts, and in writing math steps.  As different students studying use different cards at one time, learning difficulties encountered by them is immediately noted and appropriate remedial activity is given either immediately or within the next week.  Only after the mistake is remedied does the student move to the next card.  In the context of learning any subject, the students learn a lot from fellow students.  This aspect plays a considerable part in the removal of their learning difficulties encountered in that topic.  Fellow students find out the mistakes committed by the student and remedy them immediately.


Playing Indoor Games

To cope up with the environment at the center we have purchased carom board, snake and ladder, ludo, skipping and other few interesting games.  This is purely to make them feel relaxed from the day’s education.  They are also feeling very happy to come to the center as they can play while studying.  Slowly we are diverting them into studies at this moment.  Even the children are also started to cooperate with the teachers.

 Mid-Day Meal

 Children of Prashant Nagar Colony Center are provided with a mid-day meal program with good nutritious food. Both the centers are given full Mid-day meal that consists of rice, pulses, vegetables, leafy vegetables etc. Once in a month we provide eggs to the children.


Children in HEARDS child labor rehabilitation center are happy with the non formal education which they receive in their life. In fact some of them are not seen the school in their life time. Now they are able to read and right. So they are very grateful to the people who are supporting them directly and indirectly.
