These girls walk 9 miles everyday to and from school to get a good education. 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 very difficult. They love Agragamee School, which makes up all these short comings AND makes learning so much fun! This project will provide a bus for girls to come to Agragamee School.
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 .
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 transport from their village to the school.
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.
