Regards from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch.
As we all know that the pandemic situation has not over yet, but the world has started functioning except the schools. Education has not resume in this crisis situation, but the government of Gujarat has tried its best to reach out to the last children of the village. As government is more focused on online education but also encouraging the teachers for the children who do not have any devices to be part in online education. The government teachers are supporting the children and the parents at their best to provide education.
Still many interior children are not able to connect in this initiative, due to lack of resources, connectivity issues, electricity issues, parents are not capable to recharge their TV or mobile and so on. These issues are not able to solve so quickly, as these situation are faced by so many rural India people. Hence, due to the pandemic situation has also affected on small scale and rural people so the financial problem are also the major reason.
We at Gram Vikas Trust, have started helping out our beneficiaries by providing some books, hard copies to the children who are staying in very interior areas, and/or do not able to avail the online education. We have tried to encourage our supporters at the village level to identify such persons who can donate or provide some set of books for our girls. We had also started gathering smart phones for our girls but due to other societal issue we dropped that idea. The text-books or other reading materials are really helpful, which they can share with each other also.
Till now we have able to gather more than 300 books from the villages only and shared among our beneficiaries, which is really helpful for our girls to be connected with learning. We encourage our girls to read maximum they can, which will help them to be connected with learning. As the riding towards the future project is highly linked with education, we have initiated this steps for our beneficiaries.
Let us come together, and help our beneficiaries in this noble cause, by sharing a small amount for a book or two. Which will definitely help the girls in riding towards the future.
