Backdrop

India is a country of “Young Age”. The demographics of India are remarkably diverse. India is the second most populous country in the world, with over 1.18 billion people (estimate for April, 2010), more than a sixth of the world's population. Already containing 17.31% of the world's population, India is projected to be the world's most populous country by 2025, surpassing China, its population exceeding 1.6 billion people by 2050. However, India has an astonishing demographic dividend where more than 50% of its population is below the age of 25 and more than 65% hovers below the age of 35. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years, compared to 37 for China and 48 for Japan; and, by 2030, India's dependency ratio should be just over 0.4.

We strongly believe that we need to invest most in children and youths by inculcating Right Knowledge, Right Skill and Right Attitude to make our beloved country leading to humanity. Keeping this in mind Evosys provided a matching grant as a part of its CSR policy to Jeevantirth for implementing the project of “Baal Sanskar Kendras” – Non-formal Education Centres for under-priviledged children of urban slums.

About "Bal Sanskar Kendras"

“RamaPir No Tekro” - Vadaj is the biggest slum of Ahamadabad where 35 thousand families are struggling to survive; most of them work as Rag-pickers. About 95% School going children of the area study in Municipal Schools. Big student-teacher ratio, lack of awareness on the part of parents, apathetic attitude of the teachers for the children of the unprivileged class, irregularity in attending schools, lack of teaching-learning materials etc. are some of the reasons for their poor performance in the education. More than 50% children of class 5th do not read or write properly. In the beginning, Jeevantirth started just one “Bal Sanskar Kendra” in the area now we are running fifteen such centres in the area. Thus we are directly and regularly covering about 500 children of the most vulnerable sections of the society. Our target is to reach 1,000 such children in near future.

This year children of Bal Sanskaar Kendras learnt very well “VaaGaLe” (Waachan- Reading, Ganan- Basic mathematic operations and Lekhan-Writing) as a learning tool. It was also celebration of childhood time. Children had enjoyed the process throughout the year and did well in exams. It is notable that out of total 752 children, 672 students were appeared in examination where 233 children passed exam with A grade, 278 children with B and 152 children with C Grade. This year Baal Sanskar children have also participated in program organized by Manthan Educational Programme Society, India in association with Khoj Museum and Jeevantirth is happy to announce the launch of the Global Premier of the Play “Gandi Baat” on the Pollution in the oceans carried out by Baalmitra students. The play is displayed globally over https://tvoveralt.altibox.no/tv/channels/194

Student's Assessment

Examination was conducted for all the students of BSKs 1st to 8th Standard. Papers were set in Hindi and Gujarati Medium, each paper consisting of 50 marks.
