ARV Coordinator asking questions in subjects
We are pleased to share the progress of needy children in their education and thankful to GlobalGiving team for giving the opportunity to support all the children under their coordination. We also extend our heartfelt gratitude for all the donors who are part of ensuring the following result.
On 28th Dec 2015, ARV team along with 2 international volunteers visited Kandrika children education center. ARV coordinator asked few questions on General knowledge, children answered well for all the questions and the volunteers taught the children mathematics and English basics.
On 29th Dec 2015, ARV team visited Polasanipalli anganwadi center and spend with the children below 5 years and also observed the food they are providing to the children and the team satisfied that the children are getting nutritious food.
On 29th Dec 2015, ARV team along with 2 volunteers visited Perikeedu children educational center. Asked some questions in their subjects and visited the houses of the dropout children. ARV interacted with the family, the parents are in very miserable conditions and they said that they can’t afford the school fees/books/uniform. ARV discussed with the parents and motivated the children by explaining the importance of education and brought the child to school.
Rakesh is studying 1st class and he is a drop out student as his father left their family and only mother is doing daily labour and maintaining the family. She is not able to afford for the education and made him stop the school. Then ARV approached Mr. Robin to give scholarship to support the children education. We are indeed grateful to him being accepted to support 15 children education.
ARV team visited Chevuru educational center and educated the children with maths, telugu and hindi subjects. ARV coordinator taught the children lessons in subjects. Distributed books, pens and pencils for the 240 children in 3 ARV children educational centers.
On 22nd January 2016, ARV team along with 10 International volunteers visited school in Polasanipalli and Perikeedu in Krishna District. The team observed the education standards in the school and the children are very happy to spend their time with the volunteers. The volunteers performed their talents in the school. The volunteers also clarified and understood the Indian educational systems particularly in rural India.
Fee paid for 3 children who were dropped from going to school: A girl named Anjali, 4th class is a drop out student from Aadarsh nagar in Machilipatnam. Her father rambabu, Mother Durga and having a brother Praveen kumar are mentally and physically handicapped. Her mother is suffering from chronic disease and bed ridden and she can’t do her own works, her father will look after her mother and brother at home. Her grandmother is the only source for the earnings in the house. She works at nearby houses and get food sometimes from occasions/functions leftover food. Since the goirl was absent for many days to attend the tutoring center ARV teacher met her parents and noticed their financial problem. The teacher paid school fees, provided bag and books to go to school. Now she is going regularly to school.
A boy named Shahuddin, 9th class is a dropout student from St. Francis telugu medium school His father Amit Jani, mother shakila and sister Shahnaz studying 7th class. Father works as daily labour and spent the earned money for his drinking and won’t give at home. Mother due to their cultural custom not allowed going out for work. Shahnaz is working at houses and earning nearly INR 1000 per month. Due to inability of not paying fees he is not allowed for examinations then ARV paid the school fees and made the child write the examinations.
Biggest challenge we are facing in finance as many children from different villages are requesting us to support their children education. We wanted to help them but not in a position to support teachers cost and other school supplies for the children. Seeking donors to help more children so that we would create a healthy society.
