For a nation to be developed, it is extremely important that the citizens are literate. Education is the key for the development of a nation. While India is progressing at a rapid rate, it is rather sad that a larger part of our population is still suffering from the clutches of illiteracy.
Owing to the increased illiteracy rate, the rate of development cannot be as quick as we want it to be. It is not that reforms are not in place, but one needs to take a vigilant part to ensure that things really set into motion. Children are in need of an ideal learning environment that would help them enjoy the lessons and give them the drive to succeed further.
However, sitting back and cribbing about things never helps because the need was felt to start the journey of doing right. This is why the concept of Varanasi boat school was founded by NGO Guria, under the smart leadership of Ajeet Singh.
What is the boat school?
This school has been designed with the aim of helping the aimless children who loiter in the streets of Varanasi. The school is all set to offer the right kind of learning environment and resources to the students so that they too can live a meaningful life. The children make it a point to spend two hours after their regular school day for studying, revising or even playing without any kind of pressure.
While the school has already laid the first foundation step, there is still a lot that needs to be done. The boat school is in need of a magical transformation as the school needs a makeover of the interiors, decoration and the perfect learning ambience as well. Apart from the ambience, the transformation will include the addition of resources like books, CDs, educational toys, library, stationery, computers and even painting kits for fostering the growth of creativity. This is important so that the students feel like they belong to an institute where they can carve a career for themselves.
