The land of the Vedas as we call it doesn’t even have a literacy rate that it can proudly show upon, Yes India in the 21st century is still battling this war of illiteracy, we are amongst the top nations when it comes to higher illiteracy rates, thou we thrive to call our self’s the nation that gives most promising and prominent leaders but there is other side to this coin when it comes education. Thou the urban India is quite good in its literacy stats, but what about the rural areas, where reaching seems tough and understanding the right to education is still a challenge within the community, their mindset is what needs to be changed.
Education and literacy can bring down many issues that India faces like communism, terrorism and under development. Education can enlighten people through thinking rationally, be mature at making decisions, better understanding the rights, duties and responsibility of being a citizen.
Varanasi the cultural hub of India sadly is not that rich in its literacy level and education, children are drawn towards doing petty jobs, not realizing what the future holds and how they will make a life without no basic knowledge and proper education; this is prone to happen as education mechanism is not revived and there is a clear lack of proper infrastructure to facilitate and initiate educational establishments.
Focusing on Varanasi and talking about a concept to provide education to those individuals who struggle to meet ends and survive with just penny full in hand to make a living, I am talking about a unique BOAT school project by a true doer Ajeet Singh in Varanasi, a initiative to revive and make learning for them a fun place, this is not only helping these children learn but it is also keeping them away from streets and gettos which leads nowhere!
Thou this Varanasi boat school is just in its initial stage, it still needs a lots of modifications to truly get that magical transformation by creating a better and more viable place for these children to nurture their dream of proper basic education.
Many from us are blessed and have a good independent life, we live and earn to better out life and sometimes we do philanthropic acts to balance things and show our help in whatever we can manage.
Now is the time to rise up, do what we can and help make this Varanasi boat school a much better place, so let’s pledge to help them achieve their goal and contribute in this very thought provoking idea of a boat school, I believe this form of donation is not only a contribution but also a motivation in your surrounding when you talk and discuss on such initiative, your contributing is as good as 5 others if you spread the word. So be the Robin-hood of your surrounding and help in this unique and one of a kind initiative.
