BACK TO SCHOOL
Education and illiteracy have always been significant issues in India. While campaigning for these issues we often forget to highlight few basic amenities that facilitate students towards their education. This project emphasizes on proper school uniform and shoes that make a huge difference to the tiger victim students of Sundarbans. It creates discipline, manner, value and integrity. Without uniform and shoes, a student often fails to consider the importance of attending classes. As a result, the number of drop outs are increasing every year.
GECT divided this project in various phases. In the Phase I, we have identified few schools which needed this basic support. We found that every single student walks on sleepers and travels a long distance to the school form his / her respective village. It gave us a thought of protecting their health in the most basic manner. In Phase II, we visited ‘Mathurakhanda Surendrasmriti Vidyaniketan’ in Amlamethi village, Gosaba, and took the measurements of the students' feet. In Phase III, we purchased school shoes and distributed them to 350 destitute students of the school. Now the students are extremely happy and safe from basic health hazards. No more would they have to walk bare feet to attend their classes.
Their happy faces delighted us, and we promised to come back with more such support. Next time, we are planning to distribute school uniforms so that they do not have to depend on their daily attire.
Here is how you can bring a change to a child's life ! You can sponsor a tiger victim child through this project with a minimum donation for his / her school uniform or shoes and make a difference.
