Have you tried teaching kids??

If you are reading this blog, there are 99.99% chances that you have gone through typical school education, with teachers teaching in classrooms. Do you remember your school days?? Going to school every morning, meeting friends there, playing with friends during the break, sometimes getting scoldings from our teachers and what not!!!

Every child wants to go to school. It is a place where one gets to learn so much. Just imagine how different your life would have been if you had not been able to go to school. We should be really thankful to our teachers who have helped us all the way in our journey of education. But still there are so many children in our society who cannot go to schools because their parents cannot afford to send them to school or may be they have to work as a child laborer.

Even if not a regular schooling, at least some form of alternate education should be enabled for underprivileged children. We at Unnati, have been trying to teach the children on our own whatever little things we can teach to them. It constantly reminds us that how difficult it is teaching children sometimes :-) !!! But at the same time it is so much fun trying to explain things to children. After all what's the use of all our education if we are not able to teach at least few children.

Aashish explaining to kids how a clock shows time!!!


Manoj is the favorite teacher of the kids these days!!!


Not that difficult to make children listen to you!!!


Sometimes you also need to play along with children!!!


Children @Unnati are missing Gyanesh these days!!!


It's not always that easy to explain things
to children!!!


Every child wants to learn!!!


What if these kids go to regular schools??

We are in process of starting a classroom for these kids. We have arranged a teacher with the help of Literacy India for these kids, who would teach them from Monday to Saturday. We have also rented a room not very far from Unnati and the kids would be going there in a group daily along with their teacher. Our aim is to ensure that these children should also benefit by education like other children with whatever means possible. We thought that this may not be possible by just teaching or spending time with them on weekends.

So when these kids would go for the regular classes, they would be provided with required stationeries, some nutritious thing to eat, uniforms in future etc. This would help in keeping these children motivated towards studies. We are also having a talk with their parents to send their children regularly for the classes. Once this initiative starts running smoothly, we would definitely be seeing some visible changes in a period of 6 months to 1 year. Moreover, since Literacy India already has a great deal of expertise in providing education to underprivileged children, these children would be benefited too with the curriculum followed by Literacy India.

But to support such a initiative requires money too. Given below is a rough estimate of the expenses that would occur every month.

Expenses

Amount in Rs.

Teacher Salary

2000-3000

Room Rent

1500

Meal for Children

2000

Literacy India School Monitoring - Transport

0500

Miscellaneous (Books, Stationary etc.)

1000

Total

7000-8000 /Month

Moreover, we need to ensure that at any point of time we have sufficient funds for at least 3 months to ensure that the classes for these children doesn't get hampered due to lack of funds.

You can also help these kids!!!

We really need people like you.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything.

However think of if you added some great images or video clips
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
with pics and video clips, this website could undeniably be
one of the greatest in its niche. Superb blog!

After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the
-Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get four emails with
the same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
Thanks!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a excellent job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer.

Excellent Blog!

I leave a response when I like a article on
a site or if I have something to contribute to the conversation.

Usually it's caused by the passion displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article "Have you tried teaching kids??". I was excited enough to write a thought ;-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or do a few of the responses look like they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
