A Teacher Who Saved Children Lives
Jeevan is a teacher at one of our Bridge School at Damana Talab village in southern Rajasthan. He is passionate and a dedicated teacher who always strives beyond his regular responsibilities. During one of his every day remote teaching visit during lockdown, he came to know about his 3 students- Radha, Lokesh and Lali who were living alone without parents and starving as there was no food left at home to eat.
After talking to the children, he found that their parents went to Gujarat state for doing labor work and got stuck due to sudden lockdown during the second wave. On seeing the vulnerable condition, Jeevan immediately requested their neighbors to look after these children till their parents were back and also arranged food through Panchayat (local government body) to meet their daily needs. With this timely help, these children came out of a big crisis.
Now, the parents are back and are grateful for the support provided by the teacher. Jeevan not only remain committed to his teaching profession but also go beyond to fulfill his duties. Humanity is much needed during these difficult times and Jeevan is a real example.
Young children in tribal areas of south Rajasthan are able to continue their education despite of all the challenges and pressure to drop out of education. We deeply thank you for all your support and do hope that you continue to support our project.
