We all know the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected each sector of our life. When we talk about Education sector, the pandemic has long lasting and deep-rooted effects. When I am working with class 3, 4 and 5 students, I made a survey. The result was - 52% students can't read or comprehend a short paragraph; 72% students can't recognise two-digit number (10 to 99). The reasons I found are -
- Lack of resources and opportunity to explore or learn
- Gap in education because of Lockdown
- Irregular attendance of students
‘Pustak Vanchie, Aagal Vadhie' (Pustak Padhenge, Aage Badhenge) is our campaign for engaging students in Library Activities. For this, we need to develop our Library Classroom which was unused for more than 17 months. We are planning to decorate the walls by BaLA painting and buy story, comic books and book shelf. The estimated cost of this project is about 30,000 INR.
It would be Great if you contribute for this noble cause.
