In this report Gram Vikas trust wants to share about the current situation at community level and how it is fueling our energy to work more for the cause.
Working with the rural and tribal communities since 2001, Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) has got the clear understanding about the different issues of the society. The issues they are facing are variant and looks like they are covered with so many challenges. They are poor, they do not have proper skills, they are jobless, they do not able to save money for tomorrows, they do not able to manage the household expenses, they do not have the skills to manage their lands and animal husbandry and so on. But behind each problem GVT believes that lack of education plays a crucial role.
The parents and community are not able to link their children’s good future with education. They just not worry about education and do not think about future. GVT believes that parents and community can influence the children about importance of education. If they people will lose their hope towards the benefits of education it will not work out.
With these points in mind, GVT tries to identify such parents who really value education and support their children in getting good education. GVT also tries to make such events and activities which involve parents and which might help them to change their mindsets towards education. There are hundreds of children and parents in the rural areas of Bharuch where the community itself are not motivated for their children bright future.
GVT tries to change such scenario, through awareness in the society. As giving some books and stationary to the children will help them for some time but changing the mindset will going to remain for longer time. Still GVT support such poor children but the major aim is to change the mindset of the parents.
Let us come together and help the communities to think about education and the future.
