Why am I fundraising?
Radhika comes home each evening to her mother and three sisters, pleased after attending school. She is one amongst many who found an ocean of hope after Bal Utsav started schools in her remote tribal village, in Tamil Nadu making education a reality for students like her.
These schools are run free of charge and provide books, uniforms, school bags, bicycles and transportation, along with lunch and milk to the students. The children learn languages, modern science, history, geography, ecology and other subjects taught in schools all over the nation. Alongside, they get a taste of yoga, meditation and ancient chanting.
Each tribal school has its own garden which is maintained by the students themselves. Fruits and vegetables are cultivated using zero budget natural farming techniques. Arts and crafts and sports make an integral part of the curriculum.
Despite using modern techniques (computers) to educate, the teachin staff do everything to maintain the cultural heritage of the tribe by encouraging the children to perform dance-dramas in their traditional language and costumes.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
The funds raised will be used to provide education to over 1800 children from remote tribal areas, where we operate learning centres. Thanks to this intervention - Today, t here’s a marked difference in these tribal villages and the mindset of the students and their parents. There is reduced child labour and early girl child marriage in the villages, preventing early pregnancy and miscarriage.
