Sponsor clothing and school supplies for a poor child

Impact

Every monthly donation helps in educating more kids like Chaitra

Chaitra Uday Kodiya is a ten-year old-little-girl studying in 5 at the Government Higher Primary School at Ajjibala in Sirsi Taluk. Chaitra comes from a poor agricultural family and the total family income doesn't even suffice to provide the members decent nutritious food.

Workers from Manuvikasa provided Chaitra with basic amenities like notebooks and shoes so that she can continue pursuing an education in a dignified manner. After the organization's intervention, Chaitra has taken a keen interest in her studies, with Social Science, Kannada and Science becoming her favorite subjects.

On one side, where Chaitra couldn't bring herself to communicate properly, on the other side, she has now taken a liking to dancing and aspires to become a teacher someday.

Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months

In the last 5-6 months we have distributed educational kits to about 50 children in Sirsi, Siddapur and Yellapur blocks of Uttara Kannada district. We have identified these poor children through our volunteers, SHG members and school teachers. We shortlisted the children and took all the information about these children. We encourage these children to continue their education. Also, we promise to support them in future if they get good marks. Along with family economic condition and their present status, we collect information about their future planning and their interest. After our intervention children got confident and very happy. We can see the smile on these children's faces for having all the materials they are in need.


Challenges faced and next steps

We have not faced any challenges in identifying and distributing the kits earlier. But after the COVID pandemic, schools remain closed and we are not allowed to travel and identify and distribute the kits. But we have overcome this problem now. Schools are reopened now. In the next 6 months, we want to distribute the kits to 100 children.

Most of the poor parents are unable to fulfil the need of their children especially providing necessary learning materials and casual clothes. Price of the learning materials is hiking day by day. In this situation poor families could not afford these materials. Children from these families are suffering from inferiority complex. They start stealing notebooks, pens etc from others bags. Children those are from financially good background wore colour full dresses but poor children only see this. Some children use only rough notes and never get an opportunity to write these notes on a good notebook. Just because of this, these children couldn’t score much although they are capable. Some children stop their education in the middle. To stop this, we have to help these children and provide casual dress and educational needs.
