Story
Impact

There is one Government middle school in Jamun, Rajasthan but due to the quality of teachers' attendance as well as the distance from home many of the children were discouraged from going to school. The children were instead sent for cattle grazing. Seva Mandir took up the task of setting up a rural school as an alternative. The village youth counseled parents and enrolled children into the school. Today, all the children at the Jamun center can read and write. After graduating from the rural school the children go to the Government schools for higher studies, sometimes outperforming the students there. The parents also understand the importance of education because of the rural schools. You can help these tribal children get quality education Shiksha Kendras.


About The Program

Seva Mandir's education strategy focuses on ensuring education for the school dropouts between the ages of 6-14 years in tribal areas and enables communities to demand quality education from the Government. Seva Mandir runs Shiksha Kendras in places where the quality of education is either dismal or available at all. Shiksha Kendras are single classroom, single teacher schools providing education up to 3rd grade. Surveys are conducted to assesses the quality of existing education system, if any and availability of eligible children through continuous interactions with the villagers. After an assessment, a Shiksha Kendra is opened in the said village and a local teacher is employed. The required material is distributed to the children and the school. The entire village is involved in monitoring the school. Seva Mandir runs 205 schools serving 6000 children every year. When you support this program, you enable tribal children to dream of a better future.
