Story

Dear all,
My name is Vikram Kumar and I work as an IT consultant and Social Work Coordinator for the India-based NGO Parivar Vikas. My association with "Parivar Vikas" is driven by a need to work for my community children for their basic rights, health, education and livelihood. The community which I am talking about is 35 miles from my home city Jamui. These communties are mostly inhabited by schedule caste/tribe and majority falls under poverty line. These community's families are either landless or having own small chunks of less or infertile land. Main source of livelihood for these community people are working as agricultural labour. Women and young girl from Mushar and Dalit community collect Sakhuwa and Neem tree stick (used for brushing teeth) from nearby jungle (forest) and sell it to local trains for their daily wages. Their children encouraged to drop out of school and working similarly as brick works labour / agriculture labour / as helping hand in hotel / and quite often victims of child trafficking. Youth from this communities are migrated at least 1000 miles far to work as constructions labour or industrial labour in metro cities for livelihood. The district of Jamui is also heavily affected by Naxal violence, resulting in a dangerous community for women & children. The Human Rights of these women and girls need to be protected.
Due to continued dowry practices (despite being banned in Bihar), our girls are being emotionally abused and exploited by their husbands & their husband's families. Rural girls in Bihar are forced into marriage at an early age, with one third of girls getting married at 14 to 18 years of age, among the highest child marriage rates in India according to a 2016 Word Bank survey. Bihar has been declared the third worst state for women in India according to Social Status Indicators and gender discrimination.
Bihar has India’s and Asia's lowest female literacy rate (~49%, 42% in my district of Jamui) and the lowest female workforce participation rate (FWPR), with only 83 per 1,000 women employed in the entire state of Bihar. This number is even lower in the Jamui district.
The goal of this philanthropic Milaap campaign fundraising appeal is for a social cause which will support us to establish a free classroom for extra classes for regular school syllabus along with their Computer Education Classroom in the village Chandrashekhar Nagar, far rural area of Jamui. The proximity of the chosen site in Chandrashekhar Nagar will mean around 22 villages of Gidhaur, Barhat & Laxmipur blocks of the Jamui district in Bihar Province, India. More than 2000 children in these communities will get indirect benefit and more than 300 girls will get direct benefit from multiple targeted communities .
The best way we can empower the girls of our community is through education, enabling them to develop new skills and the ability to take control of their own lives.
Help us to create an educated, confident and empowered community for our girls.
Our target is to begin the Computer education program in Chandrashekhar Nagar village.
Your donation will help us to achieve this goal. Parivar Vikas and the communities of rural district Jamui will highly appreciate your contribution. Without your support, our goal would never be accomplished to build an educated, confident and empowered community for Girls so they can too contribute in employment, in socioeconomic and democratic participation.
All funds raised will be utilized for operating the free classroom session for school syllabus subject (Math, Science, English) to making them prepare for the class 10th exam. Beside a free Computer Education. Which will provide free  education assistance to over 300 rural girls every year and encouraging our community girl towards the education.
