In Bodhgaya, there are a lot of children who cannot go to school and missing the opportunity to receive a foundational education.
It is caused mainly by “poverty” and repeated same in the generations.
The ignorance of the parents about the needs of basic education is also the cause of this issue.
For the farmers, even a small child is a really important work force in their field.
Many parents make their children work on the field in order to support a daily life.
In that way, children are missing the opportunity learn how to read, write and how to calculate.
The ones who are not be able to receive the fundamental education are facing troubles when they are grown and try to sell crops in the market. They have to accept unfair contract without knowing. In that way, it is so hard to get out of the spiral of poverty by them.
To change this situation, we are visiting villages around school frequently to convince all the patents to send their children to school.
This has enabled many children to start coming to school although they still have to work on the field.
In our school, we teach not only all the basic subjects but also English and Yoga to widen children’s choice for future carrier.
Furthermore, lunch is provided to the children whose nutrition is insufficient. One meal per day is secured for those children and it helps them grow up. These activities are four fundamental activities of the present PremaMetta School and we believe these are inseparable to achieve our goal.
We are also working on other activities such as finding child sponsors, collecting used clothes, raising donation,etc.
All our activities are fully supported by the non-paid volunteers.
