June 2019: Going from door to door to reach the unreached.
Mr. Sawai Ram, Head Teacher of Satya Bharti School Rajgarh (Jodhpur), in discussion with parents from Bheelo Ki Dhani village during Enrollment Campaign.
In Jodhpur, many of the children who are currently out-of-school are those belonging to socially and economically weak communities and groups, including linguistic and religious minorities, tribal groups living in habitations scattered over hills and deserts. The education system of Bharti Foundation focuses on reaching out to the remotest of areas in the state through a methodical enrolment drive, which includes intensive social mobilization.
On a regular basis, Bharti Foundation’s field team, including head teachers and teachers conduct multiple home visits in the communities – near and far – to encourage parents to send their children to school. They carry out methodical counselling of the families, so that they continue their support towards their child’s education.
The home visits are also focused on parents’ involvement in the child’s holistic development that include raising their academic achievement. They are encouraged to extend home involvement with their children’s learning, and also given ideas on how to help and support them in studies.
