By profession, I am a house wife at my village in Indian. I belong to siwan district of Bihar. I and my husband started to provide free education to end child labour from my home town when I saw families of many labours under my construction projects.
We all know siwan is one of the most developing city of India. Construction of high rise buildings, Roads, Bridges etc are in full swing. The working labour class of these project stay in temporary slums. To help these people we started our journey. We have surveyed where ever we can. We have list of 2150 children, who if given chance are ready to go to schools but due to their unfortunate situations and negligence of their parents they are either working in a small age, have become beggars, children who are school dropouts or children who either have never gone to school and working with their parents.
Today I run one center in siwan with 243 children. We provide school education to these children as maximum of them are working so we arrange classes according to their situation - from morning to evening till 9 pm at our centre, so that they can get education while working.
How We Started? What we are doing?
In 2013 I started preparing students (of economically background) for Gov. job Exams. At starting I had 2 students and thereafter increased to 15. One day, in a get-together with old college friends I shared my work and idea. One of my fried currently working as Ex defence person, also doing the same work and from there we planned to open a proper study centre and expanded our work. With the Name “EWS education centre” Coaching Sansthan we started our First Free Coaching come Counselling centre for all Ews and Needy Students, in this center we provide free books stationaries, learning material etc.
There after we started providing classes to school dropout/working children too. But with job it is very difficult to both of us. But our students (govt. job asprints) help us and they themselves took part in our cause.In 2015, we registered our Association as Nirbhed Foundation. And today with our volunteers we are providing school education to 3000 students.
Currently we Are running Project “EWS education crntre”. We provide free course books, notebooks, drawing and craft books, stationery items etc…also provide cloths and make sure they don't fall sick by providing free medical facilities.
Due to their poor family conditions maximum of childrens are not going to school and they work along with their parents and apart from earning they also do home making. This full time tight work schedule repel them from studying. For this problem, we started providing meal system for them. We currently provide one-time meal for 243 children so that they do not skip classes (as their parents go to work and they have to work at home and take care of their siblings etc). Their parents also feel less burdened about their child. But still we have around 1000 more students whom we cannot in the nearby slum whom we cannot afford to feed.
Why we need Fund?
Our campaign aim to provide quality Education, quality Food and to eliminate child labour. Currently my center has 243 children whom we feed one-time meal every day. However, there are around 1000 children in the nearby slum whom we cannot bring in because we do not have the funds to accomodate them. Also, we want to start two-time meals for all these children so that they can concentrate on studying and do not have to work as rag pickers to feed themselves. We need your help to serve 1000 children two-time meal everyday.
