Challenge and Change!!

Dear all,

Few days back we have visited one of the place in Jhagadia block, district Bharuch of Gujarat state. We have found many livelihood, socio-economic issues in that village. The village was able to get benefit from electricity from last four year, there is no transportation facilities, no source of livelihood, and not much connectivity from nearby town. It was really bad condition of the village. If we talk about the education, there is only class up to 5th. And till date there are only few people who have completed their 10th (SSC), this community does not give priority to education.

"If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you."

- Unknown

Yet the community people are not aware about the importance of education, they praise the teacher of the school whether they come to school, teach their children or not, whether the teacher come school by drinking alcohol or smoke cigarettes in-front of the children. The parents do not see that their children are studying or not, going to school or not.

Especially the girls are not deprived from the patriarchal society, they are not allowed to study after the primary education in the village. We have not seen any girls who have completed their 8th standard. In the young age they are forced to get married, they have no other choice to live their life at their own.

Gram Vikas Trust (GVT), has planned to work with this village, especially to empower the girls’ education. GVT has talked with few village leaders and try to find out the ways to work this village. Though it will going to little challenging as GVT has planned to change the mindset of the community. Let us help in making the community awareness and especially the girls’ education.
