Summary

They love Agragamee School as it makes learning so much fun! In their own villages, just one or two teachers to 5 classes, over crowded classrooms, parents too poor to even afford sufficient notebooks make school learning so difficult. Their parents are even more eager to send their children. This project will provide a bus for the girls to come, as many children come from villages as far as 20kms away.

Challenge

Thousands of tribal girls grow up unable to read or write. This is because village primary schools provide very poor education, and parents invest much less on education of girls than on boys. Agragamee School for tribal girls provides quality education for tribal girls. Since they have to walk quite long distance from their villages to Agragamee School, students are often tired and their attendance becomes irregular .

Solution

Agragamee School addresses the double disadvantage of poor quality of school education and lack of parental guidance in education faced by first generation school goers through an innovative, fun and child centred approach. The current project will help children come to Agragamee School regularly, and on time by providing a Bus from their village to the school.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate tribal girls, empowering them with literacy, numeracy and knowledge. They will create awareness and help their family and community members fight exploitation by money lenders, and local traders. Thus, the entire community will be able to step out of poverty. They will also be able to ensure education of their children and thus a positive cycle of development in poor tribal villages will begin.
