Project Description

In Akkarni (Dhadgaon) and Akkalkuwa tehsil LOLT is operational in 6 centres with the support of Aditya Birla group of companies since February 2018. The most challenging areas in the Tehsils were selected for the intervention under Project Anando. The areas and villages selected face many social problems and there is a felt need to work on each problem existing in the said area. Lack of awareness about the problems and the dissatisfaction about the facilities people are getting is the main reason behind all the social evils. Lack of awareness is increasing because of lack of education in people.

 

In the month of August 2017, the LOLT team started visiting different villages in the area and observed that schools have names of many students enrolled showing that enrolment of students is ensured in secondary education. But during actual field visits in the month of March 2018 the LOLT team came across many cases of children who are not in school but are being marked ‘Present’ every day in school. It was also observed that many of the enrolled students have not attended school from the last 2 to 3 years. The field visits also reflected a high level of dissatisfaction and hopelessness among parents regarding education and its importance.

 

The third major finding was that students are interested in pursuing education but there is lack of guidance and self-motivation. It was a very big challenge for the LOLT Team to implement a module that can address all the social issues and problems the area is facing. The reality is that it is not possible to bring change in this area within a span of one year but the efforts to address the issues beginning with education, one at a time will yield great results.

 

A few strategies to make the work more focused at the beginning have been adopted. The team set itself a few targets and have worked accordingly to that plan throughout the year as under:


1. Building a rapport with the schools so that we can get their support in project module activities.

2. Building a rapport with parents to involve and gain their participation in all the programmes and activities conducted by LOLT.

3. Developing a stronger attachment with students to ensure their involvement in all the programmes and activities conducted by LOLT.

4. Developing a rapport with the community to ensure programme runs smoothly at the field level.
