priority remains community education where an adult is able to read the
daily newspaper and is able to instill the study habit to a child.
education is in sorry state in the rural parts where we work. Established
schools exist but study habits do not. Children need encouragement and
support from families and the community.
is difficult when parents do not understand what support is. We have
started tuition centres in villages. This allows after school care where
children can get the help of tutors.
other advantage is that in a group, the study habit is easier to foster.
poster boy for education is Prabir Kumar.
have supported Prabir since school days. He had given up education and was
resigned to a life of labour with his father. We believed in him and he
made good this belief when he graduated with a Masters in Computer
Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in July2008.
remain committed in increasing our reach in community education through
tuition centres in villages, annual prize giving for students graduating
school final exams in our village districts and the sponsorship of
students who give up education due to a lack of funds.
me... is it acceptable that a country that sponsors a F1
racing team has children who want to study but are unable because they
cannot afford it?
I love the F1, i cannot accept the fact that little children are not given the
opportunity to learn how to read.
us then change this…now! Educate every child that you know who cannot
read…anywhere in this world.
