Challenge

Adharshila provides low cost, high quality education to children belonging to the Sahariya tribe in the 24 villages displaced from the Kuno wildlife sanctuary during 1999-2001. Poor rehabilitation and low quality of agricultural land made their families desperately poor after displacement. Instead of getting trapped into a vicious cycle of poverty and child labour for survival, Adharshila provides these kids with a chance to receive a education and graduate to better paying jobs in the future.

Solution

The project will place 2 teachers in each of the 10 villages to provide regular schooling to about 60 children. It will equip unused government school buildings with basic resource material to run a village school, and will provide students with books, notebooks, toys and sports equipment for a wholesome learning experience every day. It will provide them with a good library and science laboratory in a central location - the Adharshila middle/high school in Agraa village.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 600 out-of-school children and primary school-dropouts in 10 villages a chance to re-join the education system and improve their chances of fighting poverty in the long run. An example of this is 16 year old Indra Sharma, who graduated from the Adharshila High School this year. "I was the first girl in my village to study science. In the board exam of 2013, I passed all my subjects and now I am studying for the pre-medical entrance exam."
