Education

The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education Act (RTE) is an Act of the Parliament of India that ensures all children between the age of 6 to 14 shall have the right to free and compulsory elementary education in India. Education is the heart & soul of the United Nation’s 2030 agenda for SDG (Sustainable Development Goals). SDG Goal no. 4 also ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all.

We at Sewa International, believe that education is the key to change lives sustainably and make the impacts long lasting. Our education-related efforts include that every child has best start in life, opportunity to go to school and learn well. In our approach we have been addressing education related several issues such as learning levels, dropout rates, teaching/learning materials, sponsoring education, libraries and development of school infrastructure.


Areas of Intervention:


  •    School Kit Distribution: The idea of school kit distribution every year is to help unaided schools as well as economically poor and needy students in the backward region to encourage them not to dropout from schools. It is evident that even if due to lack of school kits, children feel ashamed and stigmatized for not having a bag or good notebooks to write upon while their classmates have access to those kits. And the most important thing is it makes the children feel more confident and passionate about their education.


  •     Bal Panchayats (BPs): BalPanchayat (Children’s Parliament) is a democratic platform for children to strengthen their voice and leadership and to address their issues concerned with their rights and wellbeing. Under this platform, all the children as members of the Bal Panchayats come from the surrounding community and they are all encouraged and are given a space to turn into effective agents of development and change.


  •    Sponsor a Child: Under this program, an individual donor is assigned to particular child education sponsorship. These sponsorships are offered to underprivileged children from socially and economically disadvantaged communities. It’s an effort to transform the lives of the children and empowering the poor community.


  •   School Infrastructure: School infrastructure has always an impact on educational quality, attendance and competition of education, teachers’ motivation etc. We build school infrastructure comprising of construction of school-administrative area & corridor, toilets, classrooms and playgrounds cum assembly area, common rooms and etc.


  •   Free Library (Akshar Bharti): The purpose of free library facilities is to help students of unaided and underdeveloped schools in advance literacy, guide learning, improve knowledge and inspire curiosity by providing books, comic books, storybooks, books on science, sports, history, art, etc. other than usual course curriculum books. So far, we have been able to provide library facilities at school premises (& library on wheels) in four Indian states - Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan.
