Building sense of achievement among children

 

In the corridors of Anaikattu PUP (Panchayat union primary) school in Kanchipuram (Tamil Nadu).. you could feel the excitement in the air..

In every corner kids were getting ready for some activities. Soon the Goonj team came in and the fun began. Kids started presenting with storytelling, folk dancing, skit shows, science exhibition and drawing competition on environment, geography, science, art.  A group of students spoke on herbal medicine, the indigenous practices of the area and it’s uses. Another bunch showed a model demonstrating ill effects of smoking and related health hazards. The day ended with each student getting a bag full of goodies - A Goonj “School Kit” with books, pencils, crayons, stationary and brand new shoes for their initiative!! Opening up their kits, finding new shoes and other material, the joy and laughter of the students was priceless.

A parent excitedly shared that the children were looking “smart” and “rich” adding, “It’s as if they are from private school!”  The school head girl later shared that the kids were now more willing to come school as they no longer had to come barefoot or struggle to match the only odd pairs available or juggle with ill-fitting slippers.

 

With its ‘School to school’ programme Goonj is reaching basics of learning to children in far flung village schools but instead of charity its using this material to build a sense of achievement and dignity among these young minds. Our teams also nudges teachers, parents and the local community to collectively resolve the issues of their school.

In hundreds of schools, every year Goonj team motivates children and teachers to take up recreational and educational activities and rewards their efforts with “School Kit” to bridge the resource gap.
