Educate a tribal child at our school for a year, INR 4500

Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust works with children from impoverished tribal communities across Wayanad District of Kerala. The organisation runs a residential tribal Vidyalaya where children are sheltered and provided with all needs free-of-cost. The children are aged 7 years and above. This academic year, a total of 205 students are enrolled from standard 1 to 10, and all of them reside at the school. These children belong to different tribal colonies across Wayanad District of Kerala. They come from depressing backgrounds as many of their parents are alcoholics. The parents do not educate the children nor give them with meals on time. Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust thus supports their education and food, at their school. Upto class 8, the Kerela Education Board curriculum is followed; and the medium of teaching is Malayalam. Class 9 and 10 students are taught as per the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) curriculum. 12 of their students appeared for the secondary level exam in 2010-11. This donation will be used to meet with the requirements of a child at this school, such as study materials, school uniform, foot wear etc.

Entry into world of Literacy
Ranjith G, enrolled last here and now is a student of grade 5 hailing from a poor tribal family having one sister .He lives in a muddy hut with his parents. Parents are illiterate and doing casual labor work. Her sister is also studying here and her mother works as Ayah. Poverty is the main problem of his family.
We met his parents and explained our school and its activities. Ranjith and his sister then were not going to any schools as the schools are far away from their colony and shortage stable income. As we provide food, shelter and study requirements, they sent Ranjith and his sister to our school last year.
We helped this child to continue his study otherwise he would be a dropout and become an unwanted member in the society. He is now in grade V, well disciplined and good singer and dancer. Studies well.
