Educate an underprivileged girl child

Impact

Every monthly donation helps in educating more girls like Tejaswi

Little Tejaswi hails from Chandoli Village in Alwar and is now a Nursery student at Sapna Sikshyalaya. When Tejaswi initially joined the school, she would stick to her elder sister from Lkg and would refuse to come and sit in class. She used to come to school with her sister, attend classes with her, have lunch with her, and then go back home.

The teachers' biggest challenge was to make her sit in her own classroom since she used to throw tantrums and run back to her sister. She was uninterested in school and refused to communicate with her teachers. Slowly and gradually, thanks to her teachers' unrelenting efforts, she started to change.

She is now able to sit and learn in her own classroom without crying. She has also started communicating with her classmates, and will hopefully only get better.

We at SAPNA believe that girl education is essential for the equitable advancement of society. Improvements in girls' education benefits the status of the family and empowers women. In this background SAPNA began 'Support the Girl Child Program' named 'Pankhuri' in 2010 and later on 8th July 2015 established a pre-primary school named 'SAPNA Shikshalaya'. This program was for economically deprived and underprivileged girls. The aim of the school was to provide 'quality, flexible and relevant learning' and targets poor girls in rural areas. A nominal fee of Rs.16 a day is charged to promote ownership towards the program. The program is envisaged to empower poor and marginalized girls with capability, freedom and choice to follow their dream. The program nurtures the overall development of the girls. This entails hygiene, discipline, punctuality, nutrition and overall turnout, in addition to learning and personality development. Currently 132 girls are studying in the school. There are ten teachers under an Educational Motivator to supervise and coordinate their work. A well designed curriculum focuses on developing the oral and written skills. Use of teaching aids enables the children to learn pre-writing and pre-reading concepts.

The tiny tots at Sapna Shikshalaya and Pankhuri are made to experience various cultures through the celebrations of all kinds of events and festivals. Over the last couple of months, they celebrated Christmas, Diwali and Children’s day with great enthusiasm. Diwali was celebrated with great pomp and splendor. The girls were told the story behind the festival, and taught a beautiful song, which was followed by sweets distribution. The girls were overjoyed to be greeted by a Santa with a bag full of treats and goodies on the occasion of Christmas. They learnt the importance of sharing and caring from their teachers, who used examples from Jesus’s life to illustrate how they could help each other. The children loved participating in all the activities organized on the occasion of Children’s day - they were very happy with all the special attention coming their way. The day ended with a Prize Distribution ceremony. The rest of the children didn’t lose heart either, for they received chocolates too!
