Girl Child Education

In spite of the fact that the Indian Constitution guarantees   that education is a basic human right and that the girls have equal right to attend school from the age of six till elementary graduation. The girl children in most families in India is discriminated against and denied this right due to preference to male inheritance, early marriage, dowry, violence against women etc.

Further reason for inequality   during primary education is that girl’s cannot attend schools due to inadequate facilities in primary schools. Schools are unable to provide safe and sanitary facilities for young girls .To add to the woes the basic infrastructural facilities like proper roads, running water are often scarce.

In the light of the prevailing conditions the effort of IIMPACT (the agency that supported the project) towards girl children education centre in rural sector is praiseworthy. Under their support we are running forty girl children learning Centers in Pakuria and Pakur blocks in Pakur district.  The centers are running effectively with 1200 girl’s all-total with 30 girls in each centre. Almost all the girls have keen interest in getting education. The girls have under gone changes both behaviourally and academically. Their parents and community   are showing happiness on what they have achieved so far. All the teachers have gone through phase wise training sessions and are showing good learning as teachers, preparing and using TLM. TLMs have been developed from the curriculum of their class. Independence Day and other national and memorable days were celebrated by the children in all the centres. Eminent person of the villages were invited during the class hours and in the programmes conducted.

The children were given exposure visit to local areas like railways stations, banks and village hats. In each Centres extracurricular activities are organized which mostly consists of dance, songs and outdoor games and storytelling sessions.
