Thousands of children in India belong to economically weaker sections of our society. Most of them drop out of school either to earn a living or due to lack of learning material, toilet facilities or awareness within their families or community level.
If that wasn't enough, the government may pass the bill to fail class 5 and 8 class students making it further difficult for children to receive education. 25 crore children in India will lose their dream if the government scraps the No Detention Policy’(NDP) which rejects failing children with poor marks in exams (competitive examination system.) Instead, (through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) helps student’s progress in multiple ways and receive quality education.
We need your support to demand the government to improve public education instead of punishing children. Every child has the right to education. Together we will help these children get back to school and ensure that each child irrespective of their background gets a fair and equal chance of attaining primary education and achieving their dreams. The plight of these children should not be ignored.
Oxfam is working in the six poorest states of India (Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Orissa) to send the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children back to school. And we cannot do this without your support. Every month you can contribute a fixed amount and help a child reach their full potential in life through education.
HOW DOES OXFAM MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN?
1. Oxfam identifies the most vulnerable children and enrols them in school under the Right to Education Act (RTE).
2. Oxfam counsels and forms school management groups to generate awareness related to RTE at village/district level.
3. Oxfam provides gap classes to drop out children and enrols them to their age appropriate classes.
4. Oxfam forms school management committees comprising of teachers, students and parents for better functioning and accountability.
5. Oxfam strengthens school infrastructure, helps builds toilets, provides books and other learning materials to children and schools in need.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
By signing up for a monthly contribution of as little as Rs 500, you can help Oxfam educate thousands of children who are deprived of education and basic rights. The amount you contribute every month will help a child learn, grow and build a better life for themselves and their family.
