This project is fund the education materials and a new classroom for this organization. The motivation is to educate the poor children and create an awareness for the eradication of child labor. The literacy rates in those regions are as low as 10%.
The aims of this PROJECT are
1. Educating the poor , to create awareness on the eradication of child labor.
2. Providing free education.
3. Helping children develop the qualities of loving kindness, compassion and universal responsibilities.
The poor literacy rate of children of the village and the nearby villages makes us to start this project for long term. In the nearby villages of Parijat Academy, the poor tribal women have meagre family income by selling home-made fermented rice beer. We cannot stop them directly from this until we provide an alternate source of income for them. We are brainstorming to create some jobs related to handloom etc but in the meantime we decided that school is the only answer for their children so that they do not continue with the family beer making earning and waste their life.
