School Chalen Hum...
Dear donors, friends and supporters, thanks a ton for your valuable support to help this rural poor tribal families, GVT really appreciate your generosity.
Believe in yourself is the first secret to success!
As mentioned earlier GVT works in the rural tribal areas of Bharuch district in the state of Gujarat since 2001. We have seen many issues which force the families and especially the girls who don’t get or complete the higher education, higher education here means 5th or 8th standards. As in the villages there is schools up to 5th or 8th standards due to total numbers of the students and other Government rules and regulations. After completing 5th or 8th the students have to travel to the nearby villages and this is the most affecting reason for families not to study further of their children specially the girl child. Most of them take admission but do not go regularly to the schools become irregular or get dropped out.
GVT has seen many girls who have continued their studies after providing the bicycles, irregularity in the school and dropping out has reduced. Which has been remarkable change GVT has made till date. Though GVT has not able to achieve the target, there are many girls still not getting the education and remains home after the village level schooling.
I would like to share one of the best examples of a girl child. Reshma studying in 8th standard. She lives in a village called Gumanpura. In this village there is a school up to 5th standard, after that the students have to travel to the nearby village at least 5km. Most of the students get dropped out after completing 5th standard. The school teachers contacted GVT as many students are not getting the education after 5th standard.
Reshma got the bicycle in 6th standard, she is now in 8th standard, while interacting with her, she shared that she is very lucky that GVT has provided bicycle to her. She told that my career might end up if I did not receive the bicycle, bicycle will change my future.
Thanks again for your valuable support.
