Education is a road that drives you straight to the path of success
The significance of this sentence cannot be denied but access to education in a country like India is a major challenge. Despite the presence of right to education which states compulsory education to children within the age group of 6-14, it is pretty ironic that approx. 50% of children do not have an easy approach to schools, books, stationeries etc. Annual Status Of Education Report 2016 states that the overall learning level of Indian students is miserably weak. Students who are said to be studying in class 5th were unable to read a simple 2nd-grade sentence. So it is high time you asked yourself, “how can I donate books near me so that I can help the poor kids study better?”
Look around and you will plenty of books to donate, board games, stationery, etc. From now on, please do not sell them second hand, try donating them instead. It will give you the satisfaction you will never forget. To be able to cause even one smile on a poor kid’s face is a priceless joy.
Certain root causes attached to poor performance and absenteeism of children at school are:
- Feeble financial position
- Non-Affordability of books
- Inefficient and incapable staff
- Non-availability of washrooms
The most striking out of the above -mentioned points is the non-availability and affordability of textbooks. A survey conducted on students who don’t go to school reveals that 2 out of every 4 students are unable to attend school because of non-affordability of books, uniforms as well as stationery items.
Role of government and NGOs
Government plays an important role to reduce illiteracy by providing scholarships to students, Distributing free uniforms and textbooks etc. Apart from government efforts, there are certain N.G.O.s specifically aim to eradicate illiteracy. With various policies initiated by the government along with combined attempts of various non-profit organizations, there was a substantial increase in the illiteracy rates from 64.84% in 2001 to 74.04%in 2011.
Why is reading necessary?
Studies have revealed that reading books on a daily basis improves the cognitive and mental ability of the brain, but in India mere availability of basic books is still a far-fetched dream for some.
In middle-income families, the ratio of books to children is about thirteen books, whereas the ratio of books in low-income family groups is approx. one book per 275 children. This highlight the gloomy side of children belonging to an underprivileged family.
