Greetings from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch.
“The purpose of the education is to open an empty mind with an open one”
- Malcolm Forbes
I am sharing you a success story of a village called Karad nearby Jhagadia block. In this village there is school up to 5th standard and the students after completing 5th standard used to go to nearby village, which is Jhagadia, Jhagadia is 4km away from the village. The condition of the community is not that much good, most of the parents work as agricultural laborer there is no other means of livelihood. Almost the full village falls in Below Poverty Line.
As we surveyed this village, we have provided 16 bicycles to the needy girls. These girls were studying in standard 6th and standard 7th. When we interviewed some families we come to know that the road is very much difficult to travel as there is no proper road to come out from the village, all the people have to come from the lonely fields. So the parents did not feeling safe to send their children school. Most of the parents not sending their children to school after 5th standard. And those who enrolled their children in to school were very irregular. The school staff shared that these girls are very much irregular in the school and so that in study also they are poor.
After one year again we have interviewed the families and school staff and it is really good to share that the things which was measured as a problem/issue is now solved. The parents are happy to send their children to school as they got the company of 16girls, all the girls from the village goes to school together and come back to home together. Teacher have also shared that these girls have become regular in the school. These girls also give lift to the girls who do not have bicycles.
We have seen the self confidence in the girls, while interacting with them. They are now dreamed to study further, which is the most important aspect which we were aiming.
Thanks to the donors who have supported to these needy girls, still there are many girls who is not able to continue her studies because of such simple reasons. Your generous support will change someone’s life.
