Parenting goals!

Have you or your parents ever taken an initiative to address a broken public problem? Would you believe that an entire schools can be built with urban unused material?  If you are intrigued by these questions, then this story is for you..!!

Here are two inspiring stories of taking the initiative to solve our own problems.

Women of Panapur village in Bihar have no formal education and have never been to a school either. BUT they took matters into their own hands to built an aaganwadi using bamboo and mud for their children aged between 4 and 13 years.  42 women received Goonj family kits for their efforts under the Cloth For Work  initiative and children received school uniforms, shoes & various study materials.  These women broke all gender barriers and set new parenting goals.

People from Korrapadu, a tribal village on the eastern Ghats of Vishakhapatnam, had no school in 8 kms vicinity. They built a school for their children’s with bamboo sticks, mud and a bit of motivation.A young educated couple from a neighboring village’s gave up a month’s salary to make this the school roof waterproof.

Participating parents received family kits for their efforts and children received school kits with uniforms, shoes and other study materials.

School to School initiative is addressing the educational needs of thousands of remote & resource starved village/ slum schools by channelizing under-utilised material of city’s affluent schools not as a thing to distribute but as a tool to bring about comprehensive behavior change in the recipients and the contributors!
