Soon to Tell the Stories of Poor yet Happy Children - Now in School

Life of Children throbs with admissions in School of their Choice 
Anupam Kher - Endorsed the Cause and Campaign, Civil Society Joined Hands
Campaign: Aao Padhayein, Sabko Badhayein- in final phase
When we began the journey, there was no momentum on the issue of education for the Poor. We wanted to fulfill the dream of poor children to study in a good school, Act or no Act, as a part of our duty towards the nation and new generation. We campaigned and sought support of civil society, community and parents. Anupam Kher endorsed our cause, we raised the issue, actively intervened, mobilized the community and build pressure for compliance of the provisions of the Act for Free and Compulsory education to the children aged between 6-14 years. And, the final results would show up now, How many benefited, how the mindsets changed, the government would budge for action?....and of course realization of duty among community members and their contribution for the cause!!

Its the high time we gear up for the agenda of seeking admissions of poor and disadvantaged in private schools as per the act reserving 25% seats for this segment for the purpose of inclusion and common school.

I appreciate MAG team operating in Indore. We have been able to seek admissions of approximately 50 children. We have a complete list of these children who are a part of our responsibility and awaiting the announcement of their admissions after lottery. We shall not leave them in a lurch even if they miss out here.

Today, Innovative Public School in ward no 2 ( Indore) admitted 10 economically deprived children in their school when MAG volunteers approached them. they acceded to the request and offered more than 25% seats to this segment. Hope through campaign we have been able to reach a target of 400+ children reaching to schools.Hope to share more such news from other editions, We shall talk in facts and figures.

Why only politicians, even those at the helm of education are impervious to the the demand of rights of the disadvantaged!! Big schools are still reluctant???

See the faces of the innocents now glow as they join the classes in good schools from coming session. Kudos to MAG team. Pankhuri in Indore has been working day and night to make this dream come true. Bhuwnesh ( Bhilwara) and Milan ( Doongarpur) have worked very systematically to achieve the goal.Will soon share the list of children. We have been able to generate donation ( uniform and other accessories ) from the society members for these kids. May God lit up their lives with good education throughout.
