You can help a rising leader like Pooja fulfill her dreams
Pooja is a young girl from the Katkari tribe in Maharashtra. She was the first person from her family to go to school.
Tragedy struck her life when her parents died when she was in class 2. She had no one to look after her or pay for her education. She had to drop out of school and go live with her grandmother.
Volunteers from Vidhayak Sansad found Pooja and brought her to our residential school. The school started looking after her education, shelter and basic necessities. She is now in class X and is good in drama, music and sports.
She wants to go to college after she graduates. She hopes to one day become a leader who brings change in the lives of tribal people. Pooja is a role model for her entire school today.

What the beneficiary gets
Vidhayak Sansad's residential school in Thane provides tribal girls from the Katkari tribe access to education. The Katkaris are a vulnerable tribe with only 3% literacy rate among women. Many girls work as child laborers in brick kilns sites.
Over 230 girls rescued from child labor study and stay in the hostels. They are provided with free education, accommodation, and quality nutrition. They are also taught co-curricular, sports, and computers. The school caters to grades 1 to 8 following which the girls are enrolled in high school till class 10 while they continue to reside at the hostel. A safe and caring environment, as well as the nutrition required to grow into healthy adults, is provided.
This donation will be used to sponsor food and accommodation expenses for the hostel. Donate to this program and a tribal girl can get access to a safe shelter along with education.

A quick look at the year in Vidhayak Sansad
A four-day long Annual Sports and Art Festival was organized in December where the girls participated and competed in different sports and arts; -- the first three winners of each category were awarded trophies, medals, and certificates.
While birth and death anniversaries of great leaders were celebrated and observed by organizing elocution and quiz competitions, other festivals were celebrated traditionally after sharing the importance, beliefs, and cultures attached to the festival. The girls enjoyed a mini vacation during Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali.
The first unit test was conducted in August and baseline exam and elementary and Intermediate examinations were conducted in September.
Activities like Puppet making, Ganpati idol making, and painting Diyas engaged them and helped them explore their creative side.
A two-day Monsoon sports event was organized in August
Educational trips to Bhatane village and MajivaliKatakariPada (hamlet) were organized. Visits to Waliv Police Station and Parol Primary Health Centre gave the girls a wonderful exposure. They were also enthralled by an orchestra by blind artists and a magic show.
The girls are in the process of discovering and developing their interests in classes like singing, tailoring, music, computers, calligraphy, and Karate. They have become more vocal and freely express their ideas due to participation in events during KRANTIDIN and 'International Tribal day'.
This academic year started with a yoga camp which helped the girls develop concentration and become more disciplined.
