Never stop doing little things for others. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.
Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) working for the betterment of the communities in Bharuch district (Gujarat, India) since 2001. Education was the main focus of GVT from it’s inception. While working with different stakeholders we realized that education is the vast field and there are many areas we need to cover while talking about education and willing to work in this field.
GVT is working on the different aspects of education, to improve its quality. Giving Para Teacher to the Government schools where there are less teachers, different motivational activities, providing scholarship to the needy students, giving educational materials and uniforms and so on. Giving bicycles to very interior village girls is also our major step in supporting the field of education.
The villages we work in are really very interior and poor, majority of people are Schedule Tribes. Mostly in the small villages, they have schools up to 5th standards, and for further studies they have to visit the nearby schools. There is less transportation facilities, and also the roads are not maintain well. So they have to walk miles from fields and other kachcha roads to reach schools.
There are many girls, who gets drop out from the school or become very irregular as they have to walk long to reach school and come back home. They get tired and do not get time for other things like playing, studying etc. Parents also don’t allow the girls to walk and attend school as for safety reasons. There are numbers of reasons like these, and the students get drop out from the schools, become irregular or cannot give proper attention in studies.
We have given hundreds of bicycles to girls of different interior villages, the continuous observation and follow up of these girls, have shown the best result. We have observed that the irregularity and the drop-out rates are decreasing. There are many girls from interior villages who faces the same problem. We have identified these girls, and have started giving bicycles and other needful things to these girls as we received donations from you all. Still there are many girls who are really in need of the educational things required.
We really appreciate the donors who have supported these poor girls, you still can support for their bright future.
