I am Tanvi Gupta, a student of Class XI studying at Bal Bharati Public School GRHM. My reason for choosing the followed cause is pretty simple, As a 16 year old teenager, I have well understood the importance of education in one's life.
The following are the reasons for choosing the initiative of "GADGETSHALA" from your prestigious NGO:
•Education lessens the challenges you will face in life. The more knowledge you gain the more opportunities will open up to allow individuals to achieve better possibilities in career and personal growth. Education has played an important role in the career world of the twenty-first century.
•Having education in an area helps people think, feel, and behave in a way that contributes to their success, and improves not only their personal satisfaction but also their community. In addition, education develops human personality, thoughts, dealing with others and prepares people for life
•Education helps us to teach necessary morals, good manners, and wise ethics to others. As well as being good at the physical, mental and social level, it promotes the feeling of living a better life. A good education is constructive, which creates our future.
•The importance of education in life is so much that it changes the life of a person entirely. Being educated makes you productive individual. Literacy helps you engage with fellow humans and the workings of the world to allow you to experience it in a more better way.
At least 27% of children in India do not have access to a smartphone. This means that approximately 30 million children do not have a digital device to access education online, as reported by the Indian government, these children have not been able to learn. This is especially the case in rural areas. With children falling out of the academic fold, they are left milling around or have to work in fields. Even though some parents in rural areas may want to their children’s education to continue, the cost of that decision is losing a working hand in fields.Even besides that, in case schools reopen, these students will dropout because not only have they lost touch with the curriculum but are also engaged in odd jobs due to financial strain during the pandemic.
However, after the pandemic and shift to the digital medium, it has been difficult to help the children. They need support and donations to provide the underprivileged children access to digital devices.
Hamari Pahchan has already provided a few areas with internet facilities and they aim to create a full library equipped with gadgets for these children through this initiative called ,‘Gadgetshala’
