Why Support NGOs That Work for Child Education?

Education is a basic human right but not every child in India has access to proper and quality education. Taking responsibilities, there are several NGOs in Ahmedabad and NGOs in different metro cities and villages across the country that have been working for the betterment of education.

Schools and educational institutes take children from darkness to light and hence use the line ‘Tamaso mājyotirgamaya’ in their prayers. Many of the schools have failed in giving equal opportunity in education to children regardless of their social class, gender, caste, creed, and mental stability. The NGOs have been bridging the gap between children and education in various parts of the country. These NGOs with the help of charity organizations, motivate children to go to school and study like a normal student.

Just like the NGOs working for education in Ahmedabad, there are NGOs in different parts of the world that have been trying to provide quality education to each and every child of India. One first needs to understand how NGOs have been working towards the betterment of education in India.

The current population of India is approximately 135cr, based on the latest United Nations estimation. According to data, there were 32 million children (age: 6-13years) in India who were not registered in any educational institution in 2015. Other problems that are adding up to children not seeking education are; children dropping out of schools before the 8th standard. Even today, a lot of households in the rural parts of India do not believe in sending their daughters to schools for education.

The girls in rural areas are not allowed to study and are married at a tender age. These girls, in most cases, end up being completely dependent on their husbands. Here comes the role of civic society, as they work to ensure that everyone gets equal rights and opportunities. The NGO in Ahmedabad has been trying to raise awareness on women empowerment and girl child education.

There are n number of NGOs that have been working on strengthening the current education system. This also includes fighting for the basic human right of underprivileged children getting quality education in India. The NGOs that work in remote areas of the country have been trying to spread awareness about the Right to Education Act.

How can we (society) help these NGOs?

For the welfare of the society and a better future of the country, we, as a society, can contribute. We can help NGOs in upgrading the education quality in India by the following steps.

  • We can spread awareness about the significance of Education amongst parents and communities.
  • Educate people about education being a basic human right. This will help in improving the quality of education regardless of social class, gender, etc.
  • Donate money to NGOs that have been working consistently for the betterment of education in society. This money is then used in educating underprivileged children.

NGOs have been playing a vital role in making education available to each and every child of India. Hence, as responsible citizens of this country, we need to support these NGOs and spread awareness about the importance of education at individual level as well.
