Illiteracy rate is very high in the village and people are not aware about their rights. Government is responsible to provide health, educational, drinking water and sanitation but unfortunately village has not any health facility and has very poor sanitation system. Road to market roads has also very miserable condition. Women right violations are very common. Women are not provided the legal right of heir and they remain dependant to men throughout their life.
An awareness center has been established in the school. A woman manager remains in the center to facilitate the people particularly women about the procedures to get services from the government departments and legal aid to women as well to get their rights.
“I was not having my national identity card. My vote was not registered too. I came to this center and they facilitated me to get the National Identity Card and my vote is also registered now. I will cast my vote first time in my life in upcoming local government’s elections. I will vote for the candidate who will promote education for girls in my village” A visitor of the said.
A monthly Aagahi Session is held in which a government official visits the awareness center and brief the people about the services provided by his department.
Manager Awareness Center expressed her views that Rising Sun School is moved beyond the traditional schools and is taking initiative to fight against darkness and ignorance at front foot. Traditional quality education to the children and awareness to the illiterate elders about the legal rights will boost our effort to make this village a better place to live and every individual will be enjoying equally with a happy life.
