20000+ Smiles through School Kit Program 2016

20161119_105205

Future India Team managed to meet 20000 students at 260 government schools in Kolar Taluk, Karanataka in November 2016.

Our target is to meet, greet and gift note books to all students in remote government schools from kolar taluk every year. Usually, We start with few challenges including funding part, but our target is achieved with great support from well wishers and volunteers every year.

Kolar taluk is about 60km from Bangalore. It is known for agriculture and Gold mine. There is severe water scarcity and people find difficulty in getting water for daily life and farming.

There are 300+ government schools in Kolar Taluk with 25000 students. Most of them are the children of farmers and daily wage workers. Though these kids manage to reach schools, most often we see school dropouts due to unaffordablity. Our goal is to motivate them to attend schools and learn with right note books and stationaries. We learn from all the teachers that note books arranged by Future India Trust are great help for all students.

All of us could see the smiles and happiness after receiving note books. At end of the day, we leave the school campus with innocent kids shouting “Thank you sir”, which is worth millions !!!.

Future India Team is able to reach 20,000+ students at 268 government schools this year. We would like to continue this every year.

This event is not possible without your support – Volunteers with their families, Synopsys team, teachers, CRPs, well wishers and students. Future India Team thanks all the volunteers. Also, we enjoy the hospitality at every school – sweets, fruits, cumumber, mixer, biscuits, soft drinks ,hot drinks and lunch sometime.

We also thank the note book vendor – TLS Papers & Products. TLS gives enough time to collect and settle the money for his invoice.

Future India Team express our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Veeranna Gowda sir (VG sir). He helps us to track the progress and is ready to offer any kind of support. It is a wonderful team work and Future India Team appreciates everyone for their sincere efforts.

Goals for Y2017: We could see the need for exam pads and water bottles. There are few schools running with less teachers – we can identify local teachers and help the students by paying nominal salary every month until government fills the vacancies. Again, this is not the permanent solution, but a small support from Future India Trust.

We need your strong support to start early and reach all students by Middle of June 2017 again.

Future India in West Bengal – Rajib’s Experience

“Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world” ~ Nelson Mandela

At the risk of stating the obvious, it would still make sense to highlight the fact that the future of any country depends on its children. How they get access to quality education, study materials, books that would fire up their imagination and shape their dreams, should not depend upon where they live, which economic layer they belong to or who were their ancestors.

And the Future India team precisely does that. It works with the schools, the administrators, teachers and children primarily in the rural areas and ensures that their educational needs are taken care of. Its a small team of working professionals who has the common goal of giving back to the society from where they received so much. No child should give up on going to school. That is the dream of Future India.

FutureIndia1

In this album we cover the recent Future India Project in some villages in West Bengal…the Journey started 4 years back and we are happy to share with you the progress the Team has made.

With the students we talked about the life of APJ Abdul Kalam – the son of a poor farmer who became a Rocket Scientist and then the President of India.

We met Wondergirl Payo – She is in the habit of winning, whether it’s a race she is running or being the best in the studies in her class. She wants to become an Astronaut when she grows up. She loves to sing and dance whenever she gets a chance. The fact that she does not have a pair of slippers or a bed to sleep on, does not deter her from having Fire in her Wings!

FutureIndia5

We met a Primary School Teacher who donates 50 per cent of his salary every month so that 120 boys and girls like Payo can live in the ashram and continue to go to school. He is doing a commendable job of supporting these kids whose parents are migrant laborers, working in distant cities and can hardly afford to educate their kids. An inspiration for all of us.

FutureIndia2

The Main Administrator of the school has dedicated his life for the cause of these children. He has been working with the children from his student days. A man of great ideas, vision and energy. He is the eldest in a family of six brothers and along with taking care of all the children, he takes care of his brothers and their families too. We are honored to work with him.

FutureIndia4

We met a grandfather like figure – a poet with an exceptional memory. He is part of a long generation of poets who composes poetry about the lives of people, their struggle, their love, their hopes and dreams. Despite his wavering vision and old age, he is willing to walk or bicycle any number of miles for his poetry. Some he writes and many he has memorized from his ancestors. He has offered more poems on our next trip.

FutureIndia3

We would also like to express our gratitude and sincere thanks to all the well wishers, supporters, contributors, literally from across the world, without whom this progress would not have been possible.

Hope you like the progress we have made so far. Our Thousand Mile Journey has just begun with these steps!
