Education is the best thing you can give a child in need. Especially it becomes the best gift for the child who is really willing to go to school, but can’t afford it. We feel that money should not become a barrier in shaping up a child’s future. So, currently we have taken up the responsibility of sponsoring the education of 55 child labors from rural areas of Madurai. Most of these children have parents who are from a very poor background. Their parents are daily wage labors (umbrella repair, agriculture labors, construction workers etc) who find it almost impossible to send their children to school and so they prefer sending them to work to meet ends. But if we can sponsor for their education, they can surely continue schooling without any hindrance from their parents or financial crisis. 55 is just a start, if we get enough funds we wish to sponsor more n more children in the future. Out of these 55, few are going to complete 12th and wish to pursue higher education. Many of the things we need can wait, but a child in need cannot. So we request you to contribute as much as possible and also spread this message to your friends and relatives. A gal named Thavaselvi had to discontinue school due to pressure from her parents to go to work. But after much struggle and resistance, she has gone back to school. These children are really determined and have great perseverance to come up in life even under adverse conditions.

Visit to Ussilampatti(village in madurai),22/06/08

Following our work against child labor and child abuse, few of our RADIUM volunteers went on a field trip to usilampatti village in Madurai where female infanticide incidence is high and many cases of girl children abuse have been reported.We also met the 55 children under our scholarship scheme currently, from the villages namely usilampatti, chellampatti, kovilangulam, sangampatti, matharai, thottapanayaknur, karuvepilai, karumathur. We met these children on jun 22nd at a place called karumathur where they assembled with their parents. Their primary need is access to education and materials required for it (notebooks, guides, geometry box, other stationeries, uniform) This costs around 2500 per child p.a. Either you can take up the responsibility of sponsoring one child or arranging for monthly sponsors together which can sponsor for one child. Please also ask the sponsors to send us the name of the child they wish to sponsor from the list of 55 so that we can start lookin for sponsors for the rest.

These 55 children have been selected for BlueBlood scholarship on the following criteria:
1.female infanticide incidence is high in the region
2.there are more than 3 children in the family
3.highly susceptible to becoming a child labor
4.very poor background and rural area

The Other Side
if these children have to discontinue school without sponsors or sufficient funds they have to go to work in the mills or "thari" as it is known in tamil. In the mills the children have to work for more than 14 hrs and also they undergo a lot of harrassment and also underpaid. So its our duty to make them continue their schooling and give them a secure future. the main aim of this program is to provide education to atleast one girl child in a family thus contributing to the overall development of the rural areas where the female infanticide incidence is high and also this is a fight against child labor.

Ways of Contribution
You can be a sponsor for a child - Rs. 2000 per annum
or
You can be a monthly sponsor for the children - Rs.100
or
You can make a one time donation also or u can give used guides(10th n 12th) , geometry boxes, sketch pens and note books to these children.

Those who wish to join us in this mail to connect@blueblood.in, we can send you photos and other details.

 

do read the following report about the state of govt schools in India given by RETF team(2-1-2008).

RETF REPORT OF VISIT ON   02.01.2008 TO MCD PRIMARY SCHOOL, MORNING SHIFT, C BLOCK, JHANGIRPURI, DELHI

1175 GIRL STUDENTS ARE COMPELLED TO STUDY IN DARKNESS

A Right to Education Task Force team (RETF) visited MCD Primary School, morning shift, C Block, Jahangirpuri, Delhi at 8.30 AM on January 2, 2008 and observed as under:-

1.         1175 girl students belonging to underprivileged section of society are studying in the school in classes, nursery to V.

2.         Electricity connection is available in the school but there is no electricity in any of the classrooms and all the students are compelled to study in total darkness. This condition is there for the last so many months. Computer room is also non-functional. None of the classrooms was having functional tube lights though electric fittings were there. Interesting thing noticed was that tube lights were functioning in the Principal's room. Other thing noticed was that a functional electric hot case was available in the Principal's room and the teachers were using the same for their lunch packets.

3.         Students were forced to sweep their respective classrooms. There is only one daily rated full time sweeper but of no use.

4.         Out of two toilet bocks, one was locked and another was very dirty. Some of the students were using this dirty toilet block whereas most of the other students were easing themselves in open.

5.         Except Principal's room, all other rooms were dirty. Many of the desks were broken. Windows were without glasses and the students were facing chilly winds.

6.         There are three nursery sections with 100 students but there is no aya posted for the last three years.

7.         Barring absence of 4 teachers, all other teachers were present. The Principal had gone to attend an official meeting. However, in the conditions stated above, teaching work is almost impossible.

8.         The anti-social elements use to forcibly enter into the school premises and steal the school property. The school watchman had complained to the local police in writing that he was threatened by anti-social elements of the locality and sought protection but police has not done any thing so far in this regard.

these are the problems faced by the students studying in govt. schools of DELHI, the capital of our country, then think about the children living in very remote rural areas whose existence is itself not known..

So it’s our duty to help children like them to realize their dreams. “LIGHT gives of itself freely, filling of all available spaces, not seeking anything in return; it asks not whether u are friend or foe, it gives of itself and thereby not diminished”. Let’s be like that light n light up the lives of the children in dark.
