Campaigns to bring children back to school
Project covers 28 Pre Schools (Anganwadi Centers - AWC).
8 AWC conducted mothers meeting every month without the persuasion or support of ILP project staff. 4 AWC conducted 5 meeting and others are slowly moving towards conducting meetings by themselves.
16 orientation training were conducted for Mothers’ committee members and Village Health and Sanitation Committee (VHSC) as against 14 planned for the period. 534 participants including 14 Panchayat Raj members participated.
14 new AWC have been opened during the period; # of children on enrollment in 15 old AWC increased to 606 and the new AWC 439 children are enrolled.
Attendance is at 56% children (590 out of 1045) attend regularly. 67% attendance is achieved in old AWC and 41% attendance is there in the newly started AWC.
The project is currently covering 3639 children in 36 schools.
Attendance has improved from 61 to 65% (2365 children out of 3639 are regularly attending to schools as per our own attendance monitoring system).
In consultation with the community, in order to improve girl child education and arrest girl child dropout rates, girl child education support program has been evolved. It has been decided to support 3 girls from each village and accordingly in 27 villages, 81 girls were extended with girl child education support.
Child parliament Balsansad) capacity building program was conducted in 32 schools between April to September 2013. 18 schools could do the capacity building efforts on their own and 9 schools are not that regular in conducting Bal sansad programs.
Education material was distributed to re-enrolled dropout 129 children to facilitate them to continue their education from 27 villages. The highlight of this is the village communities were fully involved in evolving the selection criteria, identifying children and distributing the support.

A 3 day workshop was conducted for the benefit of project staff on RTE, school development plan and SMC members training as strategy for project improvement.
