We are happy to present the project report of the project entitled “Educate 3000 Marginalized Slum Children in Odisha” before the donor agency and all other well-wishers.  This was the most difficult and we had to take a lot of difficulties to across this quarter of intervention due to outbreak of Corona pandemic in India. However, with all these odds, the pandemic has given us opportunities for stress regulation, research for alternative learning, online communication and many other ways of communication and social order.

Education is an essential component and fundamental rights of all children in India. It enhances their skills, personality and attitude. it is the foundation upon which we build our future. It is the only way by which a desired change and upliftment in the society can be achieved. It is process of acquiring knowledge and information that leads to a successful life. In order to impart quality education to these marginalized slum children Ruchika started its first initiative in the form of Platform school in the year 1985 in Bhubaneswar. In addition, Ruchika is running Remedial Education centre in slums of Bhubaneswar and providing remedial coaching to marginalized slum children to increase academic proficiency and to reduce dropout rate. Our focus is to provide children with the opportunity to learn and develop. So, they can grow up to be an integral and healthy part of their communities.

Goal and Objectives of the Project:

The Programme Objective was to reach out to all the slumchildren of Bhubaneswar to increase academic proficiency and targeting a significant reduction of drop-out in the schools as well as ensuring Right to Education Act, in its true spirit in the target area. 

 

Specifically, the programme focused on improving the lives of the marginalized slum children through a three-pronged approach:

  • Provision of Specialized Remedial Education to enhance academic proficiency. The approach identifies children with low proficiency and designs appropriate before or after school remedial support including competency building, counseling parents and children, family visits, etc.
  • Community mobilization to raise awareness on quality education and greater involvement of the parents and community at large in the education system
  • Specific activities with school authorities, district level authorities and the Education Department (Government of Odisha) to ensure quality of education as well as realization of maximum provisions of Right to Education Act 2009 (RTE).

The programme aimed at directly benefiting slum children through remedial education centres and school going children through activities implemented in slums and in neighbourhood schools.

Remedial Education during the Pandemic:

This is the most challenging period for the people all over World. During this emergency, Ruchika team continues to work remotely. All the supervisory staffs are preparing the e-leaning videos and uploading in You tube so that all children living in Odisha can access the education during this pandemic. Now the Positive rate in Odisha is decreasing, so, our remedial teachers are doing small group teaching through daily home visits and are also providing study material kits along with sanitation and hygienic kit to every child. They are also providing emotional support and guidance to children to encourage them for learning. Children have also encouraged for the co-curricular activity in which they are doing paintings, paper craft making, preparing teaching learning materials and so on. Teachers are also taking the follow up of e-learning classes and our adolescent group (Balika Mandal) members and Basti Education Committee (BEC) members are engaged to look after the e-learning education of the slum children.

Training and Workshop:

Learning is a continuous process. Therefore, we have always believed in enhancing the capacities of our staff as well as of teachers. Building capacities not only motivates the teachers but also directly benefits the children enrolled at the schools.

Recently, we have conducted 2 days training for our teachers and staffs to upgrade their knowledge and teaching skills. The teachers were very excited and the training was conducted in participatory way.

All the teachers actively participated in the sessions conducted on understanding curriculum, friendship education, joyful learning, e-learning, Covid-19 safety measures, personal hygienic, issues related to children and storytelling.

Activities with Govt School teachers :

Children’s are out of school due to school closure in response to COVID-19. The sudden closures of the schools have disrupted the flow of learning of the students and the existing method of imparting knowledge of the educational institutes across the world. In the given condition Odisha Govt. has been conducting e-learning and Books have distributed among the students. In the mean time our remedial teachers have helped to govt school teachers in distributing textbooks to the homes of school children and helped in the process of enrolment of children in Govt. school. Child protection policy posters have posted in intervention Govt School. This mutual cooperation’s during COVID-19 have built good rapport among them. This time Ruchika have provided Wall clock to the neighbourhood schools to keep good contact and rapport with the School teachers.

 

Eye camp for the children:

The health challenges of people living in urban slum communities are quite different from those who live in rural areas. Through these camps eye check up camps, a rapport is built with the community to get to identify and appreciate the health challenges faced by the people. Therefore, a free Eye check-up camp was organized by Ruchika in 2 slums of Bhubaneswar with the help of Care Netram. A team of specialized eye doctor and Technician were examined around 160 children’s and adolescent girls, while 9 adolescent boys and girls were found less site vision and provided with spectacles in free of cost. The Specialists spoke to children about how to increase awareness and improve access to eye health care services. This camp will bring a change in behavior of the students and they would now start taking preventive measures to avoid eye health problems.

 

Community Vaccination Drive:

The long-term solution to the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is safe vaccination program that has broad clinical and socioeconomic benefits. As we also know that slum people are living in polluted and unhealthy environment where the houses are so lumbering. This is quite impossible to maintain the social distance. In the mean time the vaccination drive was started for the people to take vaccine against Covid-19. So Ruchika have started the vaccination drive with the help of Reliance Foundation and sensitized the community people. Totally 130 slum people from different slums of Bhubaneswar got vaccinated. Through this Ruchika is ensuring the good health of people living in the slums of Bhubaneswar.

 

Empowering Adolescent girls:

Ruchika works with adolescent girls and educating them on helping the children to continue their study during this pandemic at home, create awareness among slum people regarding the RTE and good health of their children, promote girls education, teaching people as well as children on follow all covid-19 guidelines and so on. Adolescent girls are our peer educators who creating awareness among the community people on different issues like child marriage, trafficking, child labour, abuse etc at the same taking action against the issues.

 

We want to thank you for all your continuous support and we also look for more support to provide quality education to children.

Educate 3000 Marginalized slum children in Odisha.

Implemented by: Ruchika Social Service Organisation

              

 

Slum children face a particularly complex set of challenges affecting their development and the fulfilment of their rights. Urban areas contain diverse groups of disadvantaged and marginalised children, street children, orphan or single parent children, runaway children, working children such as rag pickers, construction workers, factory workers or domestic workers, child beggars, children of migrant labourers, children with special needsand so on. Education is a fundamental right of all children in India. Yet many children those who living in the slum do not have adequate access to government school. Primary Education in India suffers from many deficiencies. In addition, the government schools do not appropriately plan to address their education needs discouraging their enrolment and eventually leading to high rate of drop-outs from school.

In order to impart quality education to these marginalized slum children Ruchika started its first initiative in the form of Platform school in the year 1985 in Bhubaneswar. In addition, Ruchika is running Remedial Education centre inslums of Bhubaneswar and providing remedial coaching to marginalized slum children. The Credo of Ruchika is “If a child cannot come to school, the school must go to the child”. With the implementation of Right to Education Act, Ruchika aims to support enrolment and retention of 3000 underprivileged slum children in Government schools through its remedial education centres.

Goal and Objectives of the Project:

 

The Programme Objective was to reach out to all the slumchildren of Bhubaneswar to increase academic proficiency and targeting a significant reduction of drop-out in the schools as well as ensuring Right to Education Act, in its true spirit in the target area. 

Specifically, the programme focused on improving the lives of the marginalized slum children through a three-pronged approach:

  • Provision of Specialized Remedial Education to enhance academic proficiency. The approach identifies children with low proficiency and designs appropriate before or after school remedial support including competency building, counselingparents and children, family visits, etc.
  • Community mobilization to raise awareness on quality education and greater involvement of the parents and community at large in the education system
  • Specific activities with school authorities, district level authorities and the Education Department (Government of Odisha) to ensure quality of education as well as realization of maximum provisions of Right to Education Act 2009 (RTE).

The programme aimed at directly benefiting slum children through remedialeducation centres and school going children through activities implemented in slums and in neighbourhoodschools.

Ruchika’s Intervention:

 

Marginalized kids especially those live in the slums lag at all stages of education. When earning a livelihood and taking care of the members of the family becomes a primary matter of concern in one’s life, education stands a little or, very often, no chance of pursuance.  For the millions of underprivileged people in India, education is a high-priced luxury, and this negative outlook continues on with every new generation.

 

Ruchika intervenes in 65 most vulnerable slums of Bhubaneswar for last 10 years. The objective of the program is to bring a sustainable and right based change in the community by using Remedial Education as a platform. It targets children in the age group of 6 to 11 years with remedial coaching, 12 to 18 years of girls and boys with learning life skills including Reproductive Health Rights, Community with education and awareness on child rights and other human rights.

Changing the attitude of people and making them role models, making universal schooling a people’s movement and upgrading the academic skill and proficiencies of all children at par with the non-slum children studying in the school, training them to demand their rights, and creating a conducive environment in the slums to ensure all rights and putting all children into the safety net are some of the huge tasks the organization has planned in these slums. It needs time to educate and strengthen the care givers and duty bearers and to enable them to fulfil their obligations towards children. This urges the organization to continue intervention at least for two more years in the same slums. During the forthcoming two years, the organization plans to strategically focus on developing strength of the children as well as the community, care givers and duty bears to be the role models and protagonists of Child Rights activism. 

Remedial Education for the Marginalized Slum Children:

The Remedial Education Programme has been running in 65 slums of Bhubaneswar. Due to the second wave of Covid 19 pandemic all schools have been closed in odisha and have not reopened. The dreams of school going children are badly affected by the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, Ruchika is continuing e-learning classes for children.We started producing effective educational videos in OBS studio for the children. We set up an informal but well-built studio in the organization’s office. All the supervisory team learned how to make OBS video. After preparation of videos, we uploaded them in the organization’s YouTube channel which was created only for creating a learning platform for all children. This helps children to better access as well as parents in all over Odisha. All the Cluster educators and remedial teachers are doing the follow-up of the class and conducting assessment to evaluate the academic progress.

 

There are also several other issues connected to education, like deteriorating level of nutrition among school children because of unavailability of mid-day meals from schools, Psychological problem due to due to disruption in education or no contact with peers, infection in the households, making the issue more complex. At the same time many of the slum parents have no smartphone as well as internet. However, Ruchika is able to reach to the children as well as their parents by engaging Balika and Basti Education committee members in the e-learning process. they are helping to the children to access the e-learning videos those who have the smartphone. The members of BEC have been taking responsibilities and helping resolving the community level issues. The low performers of children, low school attendance of children, late starters and no starters as well as slow learning capacities of children were given importance in the process.

 

 

Covid-19 & the risks to slum children:

 

Residents of Urban slums, informal settlements and low-income neighbourhoods endure living conditions that make it challenging to protect against covid-19. It isnearly impossible to physically distance in the slum where several families shelter under one roof, sharing cooking facilities, toilets and water points with other households, and where there is insufficient access to public spaces.

In such environmental it is quite impossible for children to practice all preventive measures of covid-19. Children faces heightened treats to their safety and well-being. At the same time children are facing a multitude of physical, mental, social and economical risks. In such difficult situation, Ruchika helped to slum children by provide psychosocial support, counselling and continuing their education through e-learnig. At the same time Ruchika has been teaching all preventive measures of covid-19 as well as distributed mask, soap and providing rations to the neediest during this pandemic.

 

Teaching children preventive measures from COVID-19

Corona virus infection is a global emergency. Over the few months there is a rapid increase in the number of cases and deaths due to Corona virus infection.  It is very important to minimize this risk of infection for which we need to adopt appropriate preventive measures as there is no specific treatment and immunization available to date to address this serious issue.

 

In past months children have understand the basic concepts of disease prevention and control. The key insights from past months children are continuing their studies more effectively and are more concerned about COVID-19,children are improving & spreading hygiene measures through their home only. The protection of children is particularly important. Precautions are necessary to prevent the potential spread of Covid-19. In this serious situation Remedial teachers have been teaching about the basic concept of diseases prevention and control. While Covid-19 continues to spread it is important to teach the preventive measures to children as well as whole community for further transmission, to reduce the impacts of the outbreak and to support control measures.

 

Psycho-social support to Children during Covid-19 pandemic:

 

In the current context of lock down and restriction of movements, children have constrained access to socialization, play, and even physical contact, critical for their psychosocial wellbeing and development. School closures are preventing children from access to learning and limiting their interactions with peers. Children sometimes feel confused and at loss with the current situation, leading to frustration and anxiety, which increase with the overexposure to mass and social media, especially among adolescents. Some adults may struggle to find ways to explain and communicate with children about the current situation in a way that is understandable by this age group, which add frustration and disquietude.

A manual developed by UNICEF and Childline India Foundation to support children affected by the COVID-19 pandemic has been translated into Odia by the Program Manager of Ruchika. The manual is activity-based and so minimal supervision or guidance is needed. There are activities for two age groups – age’s six to ten and 11 to 19.  By use of these activities we continue to support the children living in slums to ventilate their anxiety and stress.  However, this translation booklet now have been used in different child care institutions and government schools as well as by the parents of different families to provide psycho-social support to the children during the pandemic.

 

Community Sensitization during Covid 19 Pandemic:

COVID-19 continues to constitute a public health emergency in Odisha. So, with this emergency Ruchika trained Remedial teachers, BEC members and Adolescent groups to spread awareness in the community on use of mask, hand washing with proper procedure, maintain social distance, avoid touching nose and mouth, follow lockdown guidelines etc. Since the outbreak of the COVID -19 pandemic in Odisha, Ruchika have helped the communities to cope with the effects of the pandemic, sensitized community people as well as distributed Masks, Soaps, provided rations to the needy ones and teach hand wash procedure to remedial children. In this situation our BEC members and Balika Mandal members played an important role. They not only educated the community, they also prepared masks by themselves and distributed to the people in order to save them from the Corona virus infection.

Educate 3000 Marginalized Slum Children in Odisha

 

Education is a fundamental right of all children in India. Yet many children those who living in the slum do not have adequate access to government school. Primary Education in India suffers from many deficiencies. The paucity of financial resources, weak institutional structure of primary schools, Indifference of parents, alienation of schools, inappropriateness of curricula, ineffectiveness of teachers, inertia in administrative and supervisory machinery, multitude of languages and dialects, extensive inefficiencies in operation in general and reinforced by particular in equities are some of the failure to provide fair opportunity to children from less privileged backgrounds. In addition, the government schools do not appropriately plan to address their education needs discouraging their enrolment and eventually leading to high rate of drop-outs from school. In order to impart quality education to these marginalized slum children Ruchika started its first initiative in the form of Platform school in the year 1985 in Bhubaneswar. In addition, Ruchika is running Remedial Education centre inslums of Bhubaneswar and providing remedial coaching to marginalized slum children.

The programme aimed at directly benefiting slum children through remedial education centres and school going children through activities implemented in slums and in neighbourhoodschools.

 

 

Ruchika’s Intervention:

 

Marginalized kids especially those live in the slums lag at all stages of education. When earning a livelihood and taking care of the members of the family becomes a primary matter of concern in one’s life, education stands a little or, very often, no chance of pursuance.  For the millions of underprivileged people in India, education is a high-priced luxury, and this negative outlook continues on with every new generation.

 

As per the baseline study, poverty damages childhood with significant effects on a child’s physical and mental health, as well as educational achievement. It limits the expectations of the child’s ability to perform well in school, constantly reminding him/her of the miniscule chance he/she has to overcome adversity and poverty. On the other hand, in most slums children are the first generation learners and there is no role model in the family or in community who can guide or pursue them for the better future with quality education. It also projected in the Baseline that the learning abilities of boys and girls of studied schools did not reflect a healthy picture. It is found to be worst in second language i.e. English.

As a protagonist of child rights activism, Ruchika Social Service Organisation has been providing education to the most marginalized children especially those living on the streets, slums and railway stations of Odisha. Its flagship programme – Enhancing academic proficiency through Remedial Education has been proved to be a most successful and innovative one in the state of Odisha which aims to create an effective model of community based academic solutions for government and other private initiatives in the country. The model emphases on diagnostic solutions, adopting innovative strategies in teaching learning process for faster learning and creativity, empowering the children to be change makers to transform the society as a whole and mobilizing community for greater involvement in education processes and to be role models for achieving universalization of quality education. The programme of Ruchika has succeeded in bringing more than 50,000 slum, street and railway children to school since its inception in the year 1985.

Ruchika intervenes in 65 most vulnerable slums of Bhubaneswar for last 10 years. The objective of the program is to bring a sustainable and right based change in the community by using Remedial Education as a platform. It targets children in the age group of 6 to 11 years with remedial coaching, 12 to 18 years of girls and boys with learning life skills including Reproductive Health Rights, Community with education and awareness on child rights and other human rights.

Remedial Education for the Marginalized Slum Children:

The Remedial Education Programme has been running in 65 slums of Bhubaneswar. The organisation used community sheds to run the program. Friendship strategy was followed. The teachers developed work plan in advance and were imparting remedial coaching accordingly. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic all schools have been closed in odisha and have not reopened. Therefore, Ruchika is conducting e-learning classes for children. All the cluster educators have prepared the lesson videos and uploaded in You-tube for better access to children as well as parents in all over Odisha. 

All the Cluster educators and remedial teachers are doing the follow-up of the class and conducting assessment to evaluate the academic progress. The teachers identified academic proficiency among the children getting ready to appear the annual evaluation and were helped strategically to overcome the academic difficulties.

 

The remedial teachers also visited the government schools where the children are studying and found out the learning difficulties of the children from the teachers and accordingly prepared plan of action. The Cluster Educators were focused on the academics issues of the children.

 

The low performers of children, low school attendance of children, late starters and no starters as well as slow learning capacities of children were given importance in the process.

 

 

Activities with Govt School teachers during Covid-19

 

Children’s are out of school due to school closure in response to COVID-19. The sudden closures of the schools have disrupted the flow of learning of the students and the existing method of imparting knowledge of the educational institutes across the world.

Remedial teacher have also helped in the process of enrolment of children in Govt. school. Child protection policy posters have posted in intervention Govt School. This mutual cooperation’s during COVID-19 have built good rapport among them.

 

 

 

 

Community Sensitization during Covid 19 Pandemic:

COVID-19 continues to constitute a public health emergency in Odisha. So, with this emergency Ruchika trained Remedial teachers, BEC members and Adolescent groups to spread awareness in the community on use of mask, hand washing with proper procedure, maintain social distance, avoid touching nose and mouth, follow lockdown guidelines etc. Since the outbreak of the COVID -19 pandemic in Odisha, Ruchika have helped the communities to cope with the effects of the pandemic, sensitized community people as well as distributed Masks, Soaps, provided rations to the needy ones and teach hand wash procedure to remedial children.

Corona virus is a highly infectious caused severe acute respiratory syndrome. It mostly spread among individuals during close contact now resulting in millions of death. COVID-19 is referred as pandemic due to its severity and also as the greatest global health crisis.Amidst the regulations of social distancing and self isolation, the students if allowed to attend schools may not be able to exercise the safety precautions in an effective manner. It would be very touch to control the students from playing or touching each other which might make the situation of virus spread out of control. Online classes are providing the same quality of education in the comfort of their homes thereby helping in securing their future and also in controlling the virus spread

 

Corona virus infection is a global emergency. Over the few months there is a rapid increase in the number of cases and deaths due to Corona virus infection. It is very important to minimizing this risk of infection for which we need to adopt appropriate prevention measuresas there is no specific treatment and immunization available to date to address this serious issue.

 

It has been found that prevention is the best option for controlling the rapidly spreading infection of Corona virus.Children were trained and educated about the basic hygiene like hand wash, maintain social distance, stay at home and so on. Following are some of the preventive measures taught to the children during the pandemic.

  • Clean your hands at least 10 times a day using soap and water. Follow all 08 steps of hand washing processes for 30 seconds.
  • Maintain a safe distance from every one (at least for 2 metres).
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home and do not go out.
  • Use mask when you go out in emergency.
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention immediately.

 

We not only teach them what to do, we also teach them how to do it and explain the children why to do this.

In the beginning of the year intervention, the organization has faced a serious challenge of Corona virus when the World Health Organisation has declared the new Corona virus outbreak - COVID-19 as a global pandemic.  Only a few times in the history of mankind have human beings as a race faced challenges beyond their comprehension. With advances in science, this phenomenon has become a rarity.

 

India scrambles to escape from the Corona virus crisis. Corona virus pandemic continues to wreak havoc across states and take a toll on multiple economies.  

Though Odisha has taken a proactive step well in advance even before the identification of first Corona positive case, it is struggling with several positive cases by now. The government of Odisha is aware that the State’s public health infrastructure is neither adequate nor is equipped to bear the burden of patients influx in the stage III (community transmission) spread of the virus.

The breadth and depth of such challenge is staggering in a country like India where hundreds of millions of citizens are destitute and countless millions live in packed urban areas (slums) with poor sanitation and weak public health system. 

 

As we all are aware of the fact that, the spread of the corona virus (Covid-19) in slums will surely be faster than in the non-slum areas we seem to be tracking so far. Bhubaneswar itself is surrounded with 436 slums proliferated in shanty areas with a population of more than 4.5 lakhs of which over 1.5 lakhs are children. Overcrowding, lack of clean water, poor sanitation, social dependency, larger number of human contacts, low disease immunity of dwellers, besides poor medical facilities make for tremendous speed and size of virus transmission in these slums. It is a noted fact that, the poor quality of air in Bhubaneswar slums especially those spread across railway lines are a common cause for respiratory diseases that further reduces the respiratory tract’s ability to shut the corona virus down. 

 

How do we discuss self-quarantine with a person sharing a tiny shanty with 8 people in a slum? How do we advise social distancing to a daily labourer? How do we advise a person to priorities hand sanitizers   who struggles for one meal a day?   On the other hand slums are an integral part of the city’s economy as that is where a majority of workers and domestic help stay.
