Poor children

  1. 1. By the government estimate, out of 200 million children in the age group of 6 to 14 in India, around 59 million do not attend school. Of the rest, who are currently in school, 4 out of every 10 children beginning to attend school will drop out before completing their primary school education.
  2. 2. When a child is born in the house of a poor person he is taken as an addition to the number of earners. He is rarely sent to school and mainly made to learn the tactics of the father’s vocation so that he can also start earning. Without the necessary education, children are far more likely to be poor when they are adults, creating a vicious cycle of poverty.
  3. 3. Among the world’s 10 richest people, four are Indians. On the other side, 17 million Indian children work as labourers.
  4. 4. Poor children see times where fingers gifted for holding a pencil or a crayon are smeared with sand and mud to relieve their hungry stomachs, the back is burdened with load of their younger brother or sister instead of their school bags. Ironically, they are part of constructing school buildings and they never get a chance to study in them. Since the worth of education is not known to the parents, the children are not sent to school and are sent to work by compulsion and not by choice, mostly by parents or are made to stay back,which gives them a sense of insecurity . What if we can educate these children on the parents working sites itself?
  5. 5. Getting a child educated Teaching children around you. Being more active to the happenings around, can make a big difference in the current situation and condition of children of India.
  6. 6.

  7. 7. “EDUCATION KNOCKS where education comes knocking at your door”
  8. 8. Main idea of Education Knocks Imparting education to children of labour should be incorporated as essential part of any contract whether for construction or for allowing any industry, power projects, University etc. because these projects do take a minimum of five to six years for completion and if it possible to educate these children at their parents working sites, at least 90%of the children can get basic primary education and a better understanding.In the agreements and contracts a list of all the total number of workers and their children should be submitted along with a consent letter by a local society, NGO’s and volunteers, who are willing to take up “education knocks” literacy programmed.
  9. 9.  Education going to the doorstep.  Less infrastructure.  No regular employees.  Flexible timings.  Making education available on humanitarian grounds.
  10. 10.  Lucrative, interesting and entertaining classes with basic teaching of computers.  Audio visual teaching aids to show educative movies and programmes, talk shows.  Syllabus books, vocational training books and mobile library.  Atleast two sets of uniforms should be provided so that the children have proper clothes to wear.  A nutritious meal or some snacks to improve malnutrition.  Bi-weekly, monthly and annual examinations with awards.  Small educative tours for better exposure of the world.
  11. 11.  Incentives should be given to families where all the children are educated.  Increments to the labourers should be based on their zeal and effort shown by them to provide education.  Classification of contractors in categories should also be based on the number of children of labour class being educated by them during the tenure of the contract.  Minimum ISO (international Organization for Standardization) standards should be set for any industry and construction companies to encourage them to take up education knocks literacy programme.
  12. 12. ITEM OF EXPANDITURE COST PER ANNUM TEACHING STAFF 3,00,000 BOOKS (500 per student) 25,000 STATIONERY(200 per student, per month) 60,000 UNIFORM (1200 per student for 2 pairs) 60,000 SNACKS(50 per day) 30,000 APPROXIMATE BUDGET FOR “EDUCATION KNOCKS” LITERACY PROGRAMMME (Considering 50 students under one contractor) The total annual budget sums up to approximately 6Lakhs. Even a small building takes minimum 5 years for construction, thus total cost= 30Lakhs. If the total cost of construction is 6crore,this project shall take only 5% of it. The money collected from the education cess ,the aids by the state and central government ,and world bank. Should be utilized for forming :- •Mobile library (including toys for small children) costing approximately 50,000 •Audio visual teaching aids costing approximately 2,50,000. * THIS BUDGET IS TAKEN WITH APPROXIMATE MINIMUM VALUES.
