Over the last few decades, India has seen a great improvement in their literacy rate. Education of people, especially children is one of the most important factors for the nation’s future development. Hence, availability of schools with quality education is a necessity of every country.
Schools not just educate students but also develop them to become good future human resources which will lead the nation towards prosperity. Unfortunately, in India, still not many children are privileged enough to attend these learning spaces.
Coming from an underprivileged section, a child can often face the problem of not attending schools and even if they do attend one, they often either lack the proper educational resources or the quality of education which they are provided with is not that good enough.
According to the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2018, among 5th grade students who did schooling for more than four years, only half of them were successful in reading a grade 2 text fluently.
While the government of India, NGOs and education helping trusts are putting forth some great efforts, they still have a long way to go.
This challenge of educating every child has become even more challenging due to the onset of pandemic. With the closing of schools and digital mode of learning, the number of dropouts have increased and the majority of these students belong to the underprivileged sections.
Hence, it has become necessary for the government, schools and NGOs to come together to help these children. Here are some of the ways through which an NGO can support a school –
- Reducing the dropouts and increasing the enrolment
There are many top NGOs in India that support the education of underprivileged children. These child education NGOs can support a school by encouraging underprivileged children to not leave schooling and providing them with necessary monetary support and resources.
Apart from that, these NGOs can also look for those underprivileged children who do not attend school and will encourage their enrolment into one.
- Training for teachers and students
Often NGO working for education can work with schools to improve their quality of learning. They do this by training teachers and students. Their training sessions may include topics like using digital devices for teaching, methods to improve the quality of learning and so on.
- Organising fundraising events in schools
NGOs can hold various fundraising events for schools with the help of students like sports events, competitions and so on and raise funds for them.
Education for underprivileged children at Narayan seva sansthan
Narayan Seva Sansthan is one of the most prestigious and globally recognised NGO that has been consistently working towards uplifting various underprivileged sections of the society.
For the education of the underprivileged children, the sansthan has set up an English medium co-educational school in 2015 called Narayan Children Academy. The academy not just focuses on providing quality education to the underprivileged children but also supports them with other educational facilities like free lunch, uniform, stationeries, conveyance and health care.
The Sansthan also has a Residential school for children with visual and hearing impairment.
Apart from that, the Sansthan’s orphanage called Bhagwan Mahaveer Nirashrit Balgrah also provides many orphan children with quality education and other basic amenities of life.
Hence, by contributing to any of their child education seva, you can help many such underprivileged children who are, otherwise, deprived of quality education.
