Online Classes of students of JVM

During the period of lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, schools and colleges have been suspended all over India for an uncertain period.  So we decided to start online classes so that this time is not wasted. We are using Whatsapp as a medium wherein teachers could upload their lecture videos, and students could download and watch them over and over again to understand the concepts clearly. Hence groups were made on WhatsApp for each class. Separate groups for classwork and for doubts and assignment submission for each class were formed. The classes are going on smoothly to date.

Fight against COVID-19

GYWS has come forward to help the people living in village Gopali and nearby villages. Here are some of our efforts to support the poor and needy in these tough times-

  • Distribution of basic amenities to the households
      • Date: 12th and 13th April
      • GYWS collaborated with the Gram Panchayat for the door to door distribution of basic amenities to the rural households covering 2000 families.
      • Following items were distributed to each household: Rice - 3kg, Potatoes - 2kg, Onions - 0.5kg, Nutrela Soyabean - 100g, Sanitizers 
  • Production and Distribution of quality masks
      • Date: 28th April at 11 am in the Gopali gram panchayat office.
      • A Mask Production Unit set up in Kolkata donated their first production of 5000 masks to GYWS and were distributed to 7 Gram Panchayats, ASHA worker and police, SDO, BDO offices, and students and teachers of JVM.
  • Food Kits Distribution: (1,78,290 meals over a month)
    • Date: 19th May 2020 to 8th June 2020
    • The distribution was carried out in two phases distributing food to 225 families in each phase. Phase one distribution was done on May 19th to 22. The second phase distribution was done from 7th June to 9th June.
    • A month’s ration for a family of 4 was distributed to 450 families, covering a total of 1981 people. The beneficiaries included BPL, APL families, and the ones who didn’t have ration cards and thus were unable to access the food provided by the government. 
    • A survey was conducted to identify the needful. The food kit was sufficient to support a family of four people for a month, it consisted of rice, dal, oil, potatoes, onion, biscuits, soybean, salt, eggs, and soap.

Update from Gopali Youth Welfare Society

Gopali Youth Welfare Society thank all its donors wholeheartedly who lent a hand to our mission of educated youth. Our project is to improve the infrastructure of our school Jagriti Vidya Mandir and make it fully-fledged with the required facilities and provide accommodation to more than 500 students. Currently, we have 4 classroom units having 8 classes from Nursery to V with over 250 students.

 

Installation of shelves and books in the library

The installation of shelves and books in the library has been done after the renovation of the library room. This concludes the setup of the library for the students of all the classes in our school. We think that this step will add to their learning process and develops the quality of curiosity in them.

 

Installation of Swings

Some swings are installed in the playground of our school. The unique thing about these swings is that they are being made of plastic pipes to avoid heating. They are made under the supervision of the architect of our school project. This will help us to provide a good environment and ensure overall learning.

As the increase in the number of children is observed every year, new benches were installed in the school to increase the capacity. A total of 31 benches were installed in all the classes.

 

Library Setup

A library has been set up with books of classes Nursery to V. We have bought a table and the bookshelves have been placed. This will help the students cultivate reading habits and grow interest in several fields.

Foundation Day Celebration 

We successfully conducted the foundation day event. The chief guest of the event was Prof. BHASKAR BHOWMICK (Assistant Professor Grade-I, Rajendra Mishra School of Engg Entrepreneurship). The following activities were conducted:

  1. Medical checkup of the students in the presence of their parents and hygiene awareness program by the teachers. Parents of the students came to know about the health status of their ward. Students became aware of the importance of healthy hygiene in our daily life.
  2. Workshop conducted by Spectra, IIT KGP: Students came to know about several art forms like origami, matchstick art, etc.
  3. Prize distribution ceremony: Students got encouraged or motivated by receiving medals on their half-yearly performance.

What next?

We have planned to construct a park including slides for recreation of junior kids.It will help us to ensure their all round development. 

I request you to aware others of our work and to share the project link with your friends and colleagues.

Gopali Youth Welfare Society thank all its donors wholeheartedly who lent a hand to our mission of educated youth. Our project is to improve the infrastructure of our school Jagriti Vidya Mandir and make it fully fledged with the required facilities and provide accommodation to more than 500 students. Currently, we have 4 classroom units having 8 classes from Nursery to V with over 250 students.

Towards the project

We already had the land recognized for our school building. We have contacted architect Prof. Subir Paul, B.Arch (Hons); PG Dip.TCP; FIIA: AITP; CMHS (Miami) to design our school.

What all is done?

We have received initial cost and plan of our project after some surveys conducted. We are sharing a summary of the plan we have received. The plan amounts to around Rs. 14 Cr. (around $2m)for the construction of senior classes building with offices and other utilities. After this, we will proceed with the construction of primary classes building.

Toilet Construction
At the start of the session, there was only one toilet in the JVM campus, which was also not in a very good condition. So, separate toilets for boys and girls were constructed at the beginning of the session in order to ensure proper hygiene, sanitation, and privacy.

What next?

After having realized the plan and heavy costing involved, we are trying to break the project into smaller slabs with the help of our architect. We are also trying for other funding resources like Corporate Social Responsibility to raise a decent amount to start with the first phase of our construction. I request you to reach out to us in case of any suggestion or query.
At last, I request you to aware others of our work and to share the project link with your friends and colleagues.


Thank you.
