Female literacy rate is only 35.30 percent. It also has low sex ration as compare to national statistics. Only 906 females are there than 1000 males in the village.  Following are the problem related to education in the village-
  • A government primary and a secondary school in the village with only 3 teachers in primary school on 280 children. Only 2 teachers are there in secondary school on 68 children. Teacher and children ratio is poor in the schools.
  • Schools has poor classroom infrastructure, defunct toilets which lead towards school drop out of the children specially girl children (during menstruation cycle)
  •  Parents are not able to send their children in private/convent schools due to poor financial condition.
  • There is very poor power supply in the village (only 4 hours’ uncertain supply). Due to which children are not able to study in nights or after school timings.
  • Though most of the home have join families where children do not get proper space for them study. There is a lack of favorable environment in homes to study for the children.
  • Poor families are not able to afford cost of books, school fees and other educational expenses and they push their children to earn in early age and send them out station for unskilled and skilled work which ultimately leads towards migration and child labour.
  • Due to lack of schools and quality education many families are migrating towards the cities for their children’s education.
  • There is no support and guidance to the school going children to choose their career based on their capability.
  • Villagers do not have awareness regarding government schemes due to this they are not able to participate in governance and development of the village,

  • Priority needs: With the problem statements is it derived that there is need of a place where school going children could get a favorable environment with proper space and resource material to study at any time. They there is a need of a library which could provide them a pleasant environment with full support of material as well as guidance to enhance the capability of the children and empower them to choose their career themselves. There is a need of digital library where farmers may get information of availability of inputs and sell of their produce at good price. Youth could get information regarding scholarships, fellowships and jobs.
  • Proposed Approach (type of intervention): 
  • Rural Library (A learning and Resource Centre): The library acts as a resource Centre and a clearing house of information on rural development in India.
  • For Indian children attending government schools, a library becomes a significant part of learning since these children often come from backgrounds where they do not have sufficient educational support at home. Thus one of the first roles of the library is to help children overcome the disadvantages they face – by providing them access to plenty of reading and learning material other than the textbooks. Such access would empower children through exposure, learning, and the holistic development of their personalities (NCCL, 2012:2)
  • The proposed project is Rural Library; a learning and resource centre for the villagers. Library services that would be offered to children in Rahpura Ganimat would be in the form of literature (books) extension activities, audiovisual (AV) materials and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Such access would empower children through exposure, learning, and the holistic development of their personalities. Other than providing access to a range of books, library would organize special events for children such as storytelling and activities related to the library’s services and resources.
  • Library would be classified into two sections i.e.,
  • Special infrastructure: 
  • Reading material:  Library would have a variety of course books available for students of different classes which they could access in the library as well take home to study for a week.  I would have magazine for youth and farmers.
  • Internet/Digital Resource: Library would be connected with internet. Members would be literate in computer literacy and to use digital resource. It would be a step towards achieving the goal of “Digital India”.
  • The implementing organization:  Developmental Initiatives for Advancement (DIA) would implement this project in Rahpura Ganimat.
  • About DIA: Developmental initiatives for Advancement (DIA) is a charitable trust registered in New Delhi in 2015.
  • It is promoted with the aim to bring prosperity among the disadvantaged, poor and backward people and main streaming them into the development.
