Glimpses from the last year..

Our children and their education.. is a topic every generation worries about. In cities we see a lot of facilities and resources yet gaps in empathy, caring and awareness about challenges of village India. In villages we come across a constant struggle for the basics of learning; water bottles, notebooks, basic furniture, etc.. How we wish childhood and learning was the same everywhere.

Goonj’s School to School initiative fills these gaps in urban and rural schools across India by connecting the abundance in city schools to the scarcity in village schools. City school children learn empathy, compassion, recycling- reuse in the process while village kids receive learning material schools packs with dignity, as a reward for their participation in learning activities.

Last year Goonj reached out 19,987 school packs (containing note book and books, stationery, water bottle holder, skipping rope, a vegetable bag and a hanky) to villages of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bundelkhand and Uttarakhand states of India.

This was possible because of contributions from many individuals like you from India and abroad.

This year (2017-18) Pratibimb (3 days event held in New Delhi, India) brought together more than 150 children from urban and rural school from all across India to build a better understanding among these two extreme ends of our education challenge.

We also share here two stories from our education related work this year.

Story 1 - https://www.facebook.com/goonj.org/videos/10155580656381265/ 

Story 2 - https://www.facebook.com/goonj.org/videos/10155594975726265/

What can you do, reading these stories and looking at these pictures of innocence and childhood?

Something very simple.. Contribute material or make a monetary contribution for the logistics of this work.

‘Khushiyon ka Recycle’ campaign aims at instilling the value of sharing and caring for others in city children, and channelizing their unused school material (at the end of the academic year) which would be of immense value for a school going child in resource starved village schools. 

You can also talk to at least 10 people in your own network to spread the word about this campaign. This small gesture can trigger a big impact for our children.
