We work for the Children in different geographies, under different circumstances. They are the testimonials to our success story. Following are just few of the many stories that were captured as Save the Children continues with its work addressing various issues related to Child Right in India.
LATEST FROM THE FIELD:
My Dream to Success...
One day while working– washing dishes, sweeping and mopping the floors, she met Farzana (Save the Children's partner organisations' Staff). She now attends Government Primary School Sitarampet from morning till afternoon. She goes to work after school from 2 to 3 PM for the same wages. Her wages go towards the monthly rations. She has dreams of sending her brother to school a well.
Our Interventions in Leh:
The Nomadic residential school in village Puga in Leh is a government school that was established 5 years ago to facilitate children from the Changpa tribe, a nomadic tribe with Tibetan origins. The nomad life tends not to be conjunctive to children’s educational development, as seasons change the nomads must find new pastures for their animals to graze on, and in doing so they frequently move camp and set up in different locations. This can be a difficult life for children, with little stability and limited opportunities to attend school; the Nomadic Residential School provides boarding, food and classes during the day in a warm and safe environment for students ages four to sixteen.
The Story of Novin Tamary from Leh:
Conditions in Shey Gogmas primary school in Leh are far from adequate, following the loss due to the flash floods. The school premises even today are made with sand stones and a boulder which has made teaching difficult for teachers as most of their classes are conducted outdoors. The school includes three rooms, a classroom, a staffroom and kitchen where the midday meal is prepared.
Shey Gogmas is one of the targeted institutions for Save the Children's relief efforts. Children attending this school come from families with little disposable income. As a part of our relief efforts we distributed education kits to school going children across Leh.
Novin Tamary, a student at Shey Gogmas primary school was happily studying with his classmates when our field officer met him. His family lost their home and belongings in the flood. He lost his mother two years ago due to an unfortunate event and lives with his father and siblings. “Because they don't have mother, the father doesn't look after them very well, their clothes are always dirty and torn” Kunzes Dolma (teacher).
Ms. Dolma also explained that the education kit was particularly useful for children like Novin who would not have been able to replace what they had lost in the flood, “All of the families here were so happy about the school bag, pencils and paper, they would not have been able to buy those things until next March when school started again.”
