SAMPARC began its work in the year 1990. Through interaction and obesrvation skills, it found that education is a far-fledged dream in these villages and hence began work by initiating Anganwadi, which is now grown into a Marathi medium Seconday school named Grameen Vidya Vikas Kendra, with junior college upto 12th std. Samparc has its own professional devoted staff to cater services to the community with its RTE developmental project supported by Oxfam India to upgrade educational standard and quality education for Children which is the base for any individual to grow and progress. Samparc also believes that Children are the future of our Nation as its beginning is from Balgram keeping Children in center and initiating developmental activities around them to develop the community.
About the Project:
This project is the continuation of the last project cycle.
The project began last year and has been able to reach to 4 villages covering 5 Zillah Parishad primary schools and 2 Private schools. Good rapport has been built with teachers, Government officials, PRI members, SMC and PTA members with regular visitis and interaction through meetings. Slowly, importance of education has gained attention and the community is shifting its focus on enroling children into schools. Though, there is reluctance on the part of teachers to accept implementation of RTE, since they visulaise it as a threat to their existence.
To involve active participation of the women in the project, it is proposed that SAMPARC would involve local women and SHG’s women in SMC, PTA, Project implementation and Management committee and Village educated youth committee. SAMPARC would ensure that 1/3 participation of the women in these committees.
