Educate a girl child by supporting her fees

Impact

Every monthly donation helps in the education of more girls like Puja

Puja Kumari lives in a remote village near Chouparan, Jharkhand. She had to discontinue her education after class V due to abject poverty. Every morning she sat in her courtyard and watch her friends go to school. Like many girls in the village, her future was soon to be sealed with an early marriage.

She was then identified by Nav Bharat Jagriti Kendra (NBJK) field workers. Puja's parents were counseled and with the support of a generous donor, she was enrolled to Chandrakala Daga Devei High school. She is now in Grade 6 and enjoys school. She now hopes to not only completing her matriculation but also pursue higher studies.

She has dreams of finishing her education and supporting her family to come out of their impoverished lives.

Program Description

Nav Bharat Jagriti Kendra (NBJK) is committed to encouraging the education of girls by providing the required support. NBJK field workers identify girls studying in village Government schools who drop out due to their family's economic conditions. Studies show 80% of the girls drop out after primary education due to high education costs.

They are also forced to marry at an early age. The field staff works hard to convince their parents to reconsider marriage and to educate their daughters. A written agreement is taken stating that they will not marry their daughters off before the age of 18 helping the girls finish their education without the fear of an early marriage.

The program supports close to 200 girls every year. When you support this program, a girl like Puja will be able to go to school, finish her education and help her family break the cycle of poverty.

Education is a very important part of life and very important for the society. Govt is trying to give education to every one but in some remote areas many parents still do not understand the importance of education and in some places schools are very far from the villages. Many students leave their studies due to this reason. Many students also leave due to their family's financial condition. After the pandemic many villagers who are working outside from the village lost their job and start facing financial problems. Due to this they are forced to stop education of their children even they want to provide proper education. When schools reopened after the pandemic it was noticed that a huge number of dropouts in school, specially many girl students are not coming to school on a regular basis and many have not rejoined the school. School teachers visited their place and met their parents to understand the problem. School authorities involved local leaders, Mukhiya etc. for counselling of parents. Students who are supported from this program are very happy. Recently they celebrated Independence Day at school and participated in cultural programs too. Through the program students are supported for their school fees and due to this many students who were previously not attending class due to financial problems joined back to continue study.


Challenges faced and next steps

Big challenges faced during implementation of the program is to identify the actual most needy of all students as other students who are capable to pay the nominal fee of school also request for support. Teachers did home visits and discussed with parents and students regarding the issue and then enrolled the most deserving ones under the program based on previous performance and financial conditions.


Stories from the ground

Khushbu is a daughter of Mahendra Bhuiyan. She is 15 years old and reads in class 10th. She lives in village - Barahmoriyaa of Chouparan block Dist Hazaribag along with her family. She has one brother and four sisters. She supports her mother in domestic work. Her father does labour work in the local area but total annual income of her family is less than 47000/- so her family always suffers from economic problems. Her father wants to give good education to all his children but he is facing financial issues. Khushbu is obedient and sincere in studies. She scored good marks in her previous exams. She is also very good in painting. She wants to be a banker but due to financial issues of her family she is not regular in her class. The Class Teacher discussed her attendance and came to know about the actual issue. Her class teacher discussed the issue with the school principal and coordinator of NBJK. Through the support of GiveIndia she was supported with one year school fees, after which she became regular in class.

Providing aid for educating girls

Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months

Education is not so easy for everyone, although it is a basic need of society. Thank you to all donors for their continuous support for the education of a girl child through “Educate a Girl Child by supporting her fees”. Through the program, we support many girls from rural areas of Jharkhand who dropped out of their schools due to financial issues of their families. Through the program, we give girls the opportunity to rejoin school. Due to the COVID-19 2nd wave, all educational institutes and schools closed, which stooped offline classroom education. For poor students it was not easy to continue their studies during this pandemic. From Sept, offline classes for class 9th and 10th have been started at schools for preparing them for upcoming board examinations. Attendance of girls is good and girls are also participating in extracurricular activities. Hope this year will be a better one for girls with new success and opportunities for their future.


Challenges faced and next steps

Due to COVID-19 in India, all educational institutes and schools closed, which stooped offline classroom education. It was not easy for poor students to continue their studies as they didn't have access to smartphones and good quality internet connectivity in rural areas. Teachers from rural schools were continuously putting effort to provide education support to girls by visiting their homes monthly. When the situation became better, teachers contacted girls and connected them with online classes in May. A home visit was done by the teachers or girls to clear their doubts. Teachers also conducted a test by sharing questions with girls online and providing time to answer the questions. Sometimes girls take classes in open areas on the grounds with maintaining an appropriate distance. For support of girl students, we are planning to arrange onsite training on how they can use a smartphone and continue their education. As many girls are in class 10th and are preparing for the board exam, our next step is to support them through online notes and textbook support.


Stories from the ground

Nirjala Kumari is 14 years old and studying in class 9th. She has three sisters and 2 brothers. Her father works in a shop, and her mother works as a domestic helper. During the pandemic, shops were closed, and her mother was also not going to work. So her family started facing financial problems. Her father wants to provide good education to his all children but due to the financial crisis, he was forced to stop the education of his children. Apart from this, the other beneficiary Khushbu Kumari who is studying in class 10th of school, wants to learn, but due to low family income or social and personal issues, they are deprived of going to good schools, or they have left the schools. The girl child is also forced to marry at an early age. So under this project, they are enlightened through proper counselling of parents regarding the role of education in nurturing a career and thus, parents agree to send them to schools.

Educating a girl child is changing the thoughts of a community

Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months

This program has helped in breaking the old beliefs of the community in various villages of Chouparan Block of Hazaribag district in Jharkhand. The village communities earlier never used to send their girl child to school. It was believed that girls are meant to be married and sent away, so there is no need to invest in their education. But the regular mobilization of the community by the organization and the school team helped in bringing girls to school. Fee support for girls' education is providing the opportunity for equal education to girl children. Under the program, at present, 126 girls are receiving support and many have successfully completed their secondary education and are continuing higher education. Parents are now aware of the importance of educating girl children. This program has encouraged parents to send their girls to school and get an equal chance for a better future.


Challenges faced and next steps

The main challenge was to change the mindset of the community about educating a girl child, which is now changing and girls are going to school. The rate of child marriage has also decreased in project villages. Another challenge was continuing the education of girls during the pandemic lockdown. Teachers were continuously in touch with girls and used to provide notes through mobile. Teachers also visited students' houses to provide syllabus and notes. In the next 6 months, online classes will continue and it is expected that schools will open in the month of August for higher classes. Then with all the precautions, offline classes will be conducted and preparation for finals will be done.

In Jharkhand the dropout rate of girls is very high and the maximum number of dropouts and deprived girls belongs to remote and hard to reach areas. One of the biggest reasons for this is the distance of schools and no or very few transport facilities in their area.

The school was established for those girls who are educationally deprived or are dropouts to whom the organization is providing books, tuition fee and dress. The school is affiliated to Jharkhand Board and result of the school is around 98%. Most of the girls of this school are sponsored by GiveIndia.


Apart from this the other beneficiaries are the girls who are studying in village govt. school or want to study but due to low family income or social and personal issues they are deprived to go to good schools or they have left the schools. They are also forced to marry at an early age. So under this project identification of these beneficiaries is basically done by our NBJK ground/ field staff. They are enlightened through proper counseling of parents and regarding the role of education in nurturing a career and thus they agree to send them to schools.
