Education should never stop due to lack of money. But these students had to give up schooling to support their families in the pandemic. The saddest part? This problem was mostly seen in rural or slum areas.. where good education is needed the most.
In last 3 years, IOC volunteers have renovated schools in these areas and given weekend classes also.
But these students have lost so much time in COVID- they needed regular education to catch up.
So they are starting an Evening School for 50+ underprivileged students in Dugri. Here completely free education will be given- from coaching to stationery, uniform etc, all expenses will be taken by NGO.
To make this possible, funds are needed:
Total comes to 5 lakhs for teaching 50+ children for a whole year.
- For books, uniforms and bags - 50,000
- For classroom benches, tables, smart board etc- 1,50,000
- For buses and bicycles so kids can attend school - 1,00,000
- For teachers' salaries and overall costs for 1 year- 2,00,000
