ROUND TABLE SARTHAK GURUKULProject Since:2016
Number of Beneficiaries: Children from 10 Villages “Gurukul is a formal learning structure set up in village where primary children have no access to schools. An After School Free Classes also runs in Gurukul catering to all the children in that village and in neighbourhood villages to help them cope up with school curriculum.”
We have established a low fee primary school where quality education is provided to children of Sonari and nearby villages. (Sonari is a village in the district of Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh). It has been observed that there are no good schools in that vicinity due to which the foundation of education remains weak for a lot of children.
A lot of villages in Uttar Pradesh lack good education facilities, due to which the children either drop out of schools or move to other districts or cities for better schooling. The worst affected are the girls who are forced to drop out due to lack of schools within the villages.
There are some basic reasons why we started a school in Sonari. Sonari has a rural BPO functioning, which has been providing livelihood to a lot of young boys and girls in that area. The challenge that the BPO faces is getting well-educated youth to work. We have already been running a Sarthak Study Centre for the children of Sonari since 2016.
The intention is to create a model where children from villages do not have to move out of their villages to search for education and employment.
