Regards from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch!
In this report GVT wants to share about the update of the project status. Initially GVT started with 40 selected children by providing the educational support for higher studies. Among these 40 students many of the students have completed their studies and now working with some of the companies in nearby industrial area, or some of them are coming to Bharuch or other areas for job. These students are 11 in numbers who have done their studies and started working.
Apart from these 23 students are still studying for the higher education, some of them are in Computer courses, Nursing, bachelors in Arts or Commerce, ITI. All these 23 students are doing well in their studies and our field staff are regularly in touch with all of them. Who provides motivation and supports whenever they required. Our field staff also are in touch with the family members for parents support in higher education.
6 of the student could not able to continue their study further because due to other responsibilities of family, family pressure for marriage, regular up and down for studies and other motivation reasons. Sometime parents do not see education as longer term investment which is not going to give benefit soon, and parents do not support their children for the same. Children also due to peer pressure or other community influences do not see education as a life changer. Among these 6 children 4 of them were girls and 2 boys.
GVT is currently working with other children also, who needs educational support. Also we are working with the parents and children also to sensitize them towards importance of education and how the education can change the reality.
Many of the students are not able to study further because of financial pressure or lack of interest of the family and community, let us come together to sensitize them for their better tomorrow.
