Summary

The rural people of Mandu in Ramgarh mostly earn their livelihood through illegal mining or by coal loading / unloading work close to the transport area. The amount earned is meager and insufficient to fulfill the family needs thus the parents are obligated to involve their children in the illegal mining activity to add up the family's income or leave them behind to rear their younger siblings. This process has increased the dropout rate and illiteracy among children in the area.

Challenge

The families of Mandu mostly depend on the abandoned coal mine and have no other source of livelihood. The children are involved in extraction of coals and at times they stay back at home to nurture their younger siblings and do domestic work while the parents extract coals. This process has increased dropout rate and illiteracy among children in the area. Children are ripped off their childhood and deprived of education.

Solution

This project will help these children to get quality education and nutritious food through the Residential School- "Prerna Balika Awashay Vidhyalya" at Birhortoli of Murpa village, Ramgarh District in Jharkhand which Srijan Foundation runs. The school provides bridge education to children engaged in coal mining, domestic work or other hazardous work through joyful & innovative methods to increase children's participation in classroom and mainstream them into formal schools.

Long-Term Impact

The children are provided with good quality bridge education with English, computer knowledge and life skills and mainstreamed into government school according to their credibility. Follow up with the parents and child is done so that the child continues education even after mainstreaming in the formal school. The project helps the children to lift their families from the vicious cycle of poverty and successfully reintegrate into the society, giving them opportunities for personal development.
