Every monthly donation can help educate more children like Mithilesh
Mithilesh lives in Gosala village near Chouparan, Jharkhand. He had to discontinue his education after class V due to abject poverty. At that tender age, he had begun to accompany the elders of his family to work.
His childhood and innocence were almost dead and he had no option but to resign to the sad truth of poverty, when Nav Bharat Jagriti Kendra (NBJK) field workers found him. They counseled his parents and offered to find a donor to support his education in the NBJK Amoli Apurva High School in Mangarh.
Today, because of a generous donor, Mithilesh is in Class VII. He loves learning and nurtures hopes of finishing his education and becoming a teacher so that he can help other poor kids like him.

What the beneficiary gets
Nav Bharat Jagriti Kendra (NBJK) is committed to encouraging the education of poor children by providing the required support. The field workers identify children from Government schools who drop out due to their family's economic conditions. Every village has a primary school but no high schools. The children have no means of transport, therefore, are forced to quit their education.
To combat this, NBJK established primary feeder-schools in the villages and high schools close to the village blocks. The children receive education up-to Grade V at the feeder schools and are then shifted to one of the five high schools. Over 3000 students receive education in the five high schools that cover over 90 villages.
The children who cannot afford to pay are provided education free of cost.When you support this program, you help a child like Mithilesh go to school, break the cycle of poverty and build his future.

Gift of education to underprivileged children
After a long gap of 9 months due to the COVID pandemic, schools reopened in the month of January 2021 for students of class 8th till 10th. Precautions were taken during classes, wearing masks and social distancing were maintained as per guidelines by the government. A total of 109 children are receiving educational help under the program and new 64 students names have been provided for seeking support. Most of the children under the program are girls as they are the ones who face gender inequality in their community and at home. Students receiving help under the program are from a small village called Prajapatnagar and are studying in Amoli Apurva High School. This help for education has impacted the lives of children a lot as they were unable to attend school due to discrimination and financial problems at home, but now with the support for education, girls are going to school and completing their secondary education successfully and their hard work and good performance at school is also raising awareness among the community for gender equality and right to education.\n","section":"Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months","question":"

The COVID pandemic was the main challenge which was faced by the children, as all educational institutions and schools got closed and children had very poor access to online classes. Rural children faced difficulty in arranging smartphones for online classes and mobile networks, electricity and data costs were other problems in the path of regular classes. Though online classes were not affordable for all, in this situation children did classes in groups, sometimes teachers also provided notes and syllabus by visiting students home. Children too used to contact their teachers and clear their doubts. Children with smartphones use to share their notes and learning materials with other less privileged children.For the next six months, it has been planned to improve the online teaching process and also to conduct offline classes in small groups.\n","section":"Challenges faced and next steps","question":"

Gift of Education
Year 2020 was not a very pleasant year for all due to outbreak of pandemic COVID-19 in world. In India Lock down was declared since March 2020 and so all the schools got closed immediately, suspending all the academics examinations and annual schedule of schools.
Rural people with poor financial conditions were badly affected due to loss of livelihood and this directly affected the education of girls. Home works were assigned to girls for self study, but it was difficult to clear the doubts. When the situation became a bit better, teachers approached girls and started online classes through phones to clear their doubts and provide with notes and lessons, girls with mobile phones were guided to share their lessons and notes with other girls.
Extra activities like quiz and drawings were done by teachers by sharing questions and topics with girls to motivate girls to continue their studies.
Schools resumed the offline classes for 9th and 10th classes in month of December for completing the lessons and syllabus for their final examination. Rest classes are still continuing with online classes. Girls are eagerly participating in their classes.
Girls are thankful to donors for their continuous support and wish to complete their education and gain a bright future.
