Jamia students turn to blackboards to literate the unprivileged

Summary:

On daily basis how often do we crib about several things, without pondering over the figment that there lies an underprivileged section, that struggles to access for the most basic necessities of life like Education. While most of us turn a blind eye towards them, these students from Jamia went ahead to be an aid.

While most of us turn a blind eye towards them, these students from Jamia went ahead to be an aid.

Having met slum kids from Delhi’s Shram Vihar basti, Monazza Ashraff was taken aback by their liveliness and will to learn. Ashraff the 19-year-old is part of a community of students, Aaghaz-e-Taleem, from Jamia Millia Islamia, who have come together to teach slum children, between the ages 8 and 12, in Jamia’s neighbouring localities.

Usually, youngsters from all over the world come to a university to pursue higher studies, and move on with their lives after they graduate, which doesn’t benefit the society, especially those living the closest to the university. That’s why, to bring a change in the lives of slum children, who drop out of schools, we initiated a project under the NGO CRY says Gitesh Aggarwal, final year mechanical engineering student, and founder of the project. Two educators are given one child, who they teach six subjects in 60 hours of study. Once the pre-designed curriculum is done, they help the child to get admission in a nearby government school. After that, students keep checking their progress in school once a week.

Every Saturday workshops are held for art and craft, planting, and even self-defense for the overall personality development of the children. The aim is to make them learn new things to make their base strong before they make their way to the school. In reality, even for their admission, these students help their parents who are often unaware of the procedure or do not have necessary documents like Aadhaar cards, and are unable to get their children admitted to schools.
