Project Description

Washim district is industrially backward. There are no large-scale industries, except for one sugar factory, which is non-functional. 

Nearly 80 per cent of the children are enrolled in government-run educational institutions. The proportion of the children never enrolled is 12.71 per cent, which is a cause of concern. Our Trust has been working in the space of secondary education in Washim since and has had very successful results in SSC and HSC exams.

October 2015 to March 2016:


Total of 166 Anando Plus students from Washim District were supported by Bajaj Finance Ltd.


This gave a ray of hope to the children who wanted to pursue higher education. The support came in October 2015.

 

In the first half 159 students were given notebooks as per their streams Science, Arts, Commerce, Polytechnic &ITI etc. In all the centres, text book library has been set up for Std XI & XII students.This is first time that the concept of ‘Text Book Library’ has been implemented.


Workshops were conducted and topics like “Do’s and Don’ts” about HSC exams were conducted and students became more confident about appearing for them. Many students were interested in appearing for competitive exams and workshops were held to expose them to the same. Home visits by our social workers ensured that parent’s give full support to the child. All HSC students appeared for the exam.


Special Features of the Project

 

1) Planning & preparation for the Educational Material Distribution Programme: 
Finalization of admission process for Std XI students has been delayed this year and hence some of the students had not received confirmations till end of July 2016 from the colleges. For some students the process is still ongoing. 
In the month of July 2016 orders have been placed for the required EMD for the 137 beneficiaries for the year 2016 – 17 for distribution scheduled in the month of August post finalization of admissions for all the students. The materials to be provided include notebooks, school bags, & stationery. Textbook sets will be added to the existing libraries for students to share and make use of over the academic year.
2) Setting up of Text Book Library:
In all the centres text book libraries have been set up and are functional for students of Std XI and XII.  In each center, stream-wise text book sets have been provided for students to access easily. LOLT’s SFSEP (Supplementary Classes) teachers have been given responsibility of the management of these libraries. As all the students are from poor background and unable to afford the text books, the library concept has proved to be very useful for the students.  Students are now confident of having easy access which will support them to continue their education and achieve good results.
3) Student meetings, corner meetings, home visits, group meeting:
Follow up meetings were undertaken with the students just before the examinations. Students shared that they have used the method of group study which they feel will increase their academic performance this year. 
Individual counselling sessions held with SSC and HSC appeared students and their parents. The focus of these sessions has been to 
To motivate them continue their education post Std X & XII. 
To discuss their future goals and guide them to choose appropriate career options. 
Based on the decision made jointly to guide them about the admission process and the documents they would require making the process easier. 
In total 180 sessions were conducted. Students and parents were more confident of taking the next academic step forward. Some of the parents of girl students have also become more supportive of them pursuing higher education. This is a good transformation to observe as with higher education the scenario of early marriage of the girl child does not become a priority.
