Education is a fundamental right of every child, which is essential for their growth and development. The importance of education cannot be overstated, as it enables children to acquire knowledge, skills, and values that are necessary for their personal and social development. However, despite the recognition of education as a basic right, millions of children worldwide are still deprived of their right to education.

Importance of Right to Education for Children

The right to education for children is essential for their overall development and growth. Education equips children with the knowledge, skills, and values that are necessary to lead a productive and fulfilling life. It also empowers them to make informed choices, exercise their rights, and participate in the development of their communities. Education is also a powerful tool for reducing poverty, promoting gender equality, and creating opportunities for sustainable development.

Challenges in Tribal Education

  • Education is one of the primary agents of transformation towards development.
  • Education is in fact, an input not only for economic development of tribes but also for inner strength of the tribal communities which helps them in meeting the new challenges of life.
    • Medium of Instruction: Language has been the biggest constraints in tribal education. All the curriculum and teachers module are designed in official/regional language which is alien for tribal student.
    • Economic Condition: The economic condition of tribal people is so poor that they do not desire to spare their children or their labour power and allow them to attend schools.
    • Teacher Absenteeism: In the remote tribal areas the teacher absenteeism is a regular phenomenon and this affects largely the quality of education.
    • Attitude of the Parents: As education does not yield any immediate economic return, the tribal parents prefer to engage their children in remunerative employment which supplements the family income.
    • Infrastructural Challenges: Most of the schools located in tribal areas have minimal infrastructural facilities. These schools are not equipped with teaching learning materials, study materials, even minimum sanitary provisions are not maintained.

We are giving evening tuitions for children and providing them with good nutrition as well. Initially we have taken up only 50 kids and based on supports we have a plan to extend it to maximum number of children. Together we can bring mighty changes in education of Children.

VOICE Trust is looking for vitrtual volunteers. Please do contact connect@voice-trust.org if anyone is interested
