Janiyadra village have upto 8th std school within the village. More than 90 percent Girls after 8th std drop out and only 10 % Girls enrolled in higher education in their relative home where facilities of high school and facilities of hostel in nearby city.
During this year 23 Girls have passed 8th std from the village school and out of that only 5 girls took admission in higher education who’s parents are economically sound and rest of 18 underprivileged Girls dropped out due to poor financial condition as well as lack of transport facilities from the village.
After dropped out these girls have made a mind that they will now not go for higher education. During individual interaction most of them said his parent not want to send them out side the village for education feeling insecurity as a girl child. There is also tradition that after 8th std passed they learn domestic work in the house for the period of one to two year and after that they are married.
Gram Vikas Trust organized residential “Jivan Utkarsh Sibir” for there girls along with their parent for a period of three days. These Sibir include various topic including life skill, role play. All the resource person for the sibir is women who have made success in his life.
On last day we are able to motivate these 18 girls and their parent for higher education and give commitment for the enrollment in 9th std in Kadodara village which is only 3.5 KM away from the Janiyadra village. Gram Vikas Trust has invited Kadodara high school principal on same day and he is agree to enroll all girls in 9th std.
Gram Vikas Trust helped them by donating bicycles, so that at least they can continue their higher education. We cannot do everything, but can do something with the help of our partners.
