Empowering communities through education

The story of children from the Madari (migrant) community enrolled at Satya Bharti Learning Centre Kherda, Sawai Madhopur (Rajasthan)

Poverty plays a critical role in preventing children from attending school and the migrant Madari Community in Kherda is a point in case. This community is one of the most marginalised communities of Rajasthan; remaining largely unaware of the importance of education. Community members make a living through small jobs such as rag picking or performing simple magic tricks, acrobatics, etc. With children playing an integral role in these activities, school attendance often remains a distant dream.

The Education Volunteers of the Satya Bharti Learning Centre, Kherda, Sawai Madhopur knew that it would be tough to persuade the parents to send their children to school, especially the girls. However, they worked tirelessly to convince parents that quality education alone can improve their children’s future.

With a series of house visits and counselling sessions, the Education Volunteers were successful in convincing the community members to send their wards to the Learning Centres. Once enrolled, the Education Volunteers engaged the children with the classroom sessions using interactive charts, songs and innovative Teaching Learning Material (TLM). Today, children of the Madari Community attend the school regularly and love spending time in the pursuit of education.

The Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program has emerged as a guide of quality education for numerous communities caught in the web of extreme poverty and illiteracy. Today, the children of this community, as first generation learners, are set on the path of progress.
