Gunjan Mishra, a volunteer of 'Parvarish' The Museum School, recently joined TCS in Bangalore. She called up the founders of Parvarish to know if The Museum School was functioning in Bangalore too. When told that she could start it there along with Rohit Choudhary, she wasn’t quite sure how the Founders knew about her colleague Rohit, who also happened to be her classmate while doing engineering at RGPV. She was dumbfounded to know that Rohit hailed from the slums of Baanskhedi, and was a former student at Parvarish - The Museum School, the same place where Gunjan started volunteering, back in her college days. She was both surprised and elated to realize that a volunteer teacher and an ex-student were at the same level of education and job. This is one of the few examples of how Parvarish -The Museum School, has been building the lives of underprivileged children and empowering them since 2005.

Realizing the need for quality education among underprivileged children, Organisation for Awareness of Integrated Social Security (OASIS) - A Social Innovation Lab in MP, embarked upon a mission to remove the disparity in quality of education in urban areas. This resulted in the establishment of a unique model of education called ‘Parvarish - The Museum School’. The model follows a curriculum designed to provide holistic education to underprivileged children Interestingly, education in Parvarish is imparted through exhibits in museums. For this, the school has collaborated with 5 museums in Bhopal.

The Museum School has groomed over 3500 children, some of whom are pursuing engineering, graduation, performing arts, while some have started their own ventures for livelihood. Parvarish takes a fixed number of out-of-school children from slums every year and grooms them so that they can join a mainstream school thereafter. They also provide education to those who cannot afford to go to school. The ones who teach are usually volunteers willing to render their services or youngsters who were once students at the school. Anybody willing to volunteer can either get in touch with the organization or express their willingness in the comment section below. Volunteers will be provided certificates for their effort on completion of 24 working days.

While children are mainstreamed through regular schools and National Open Schools for examinations and certifications, the objective is to make them self-employable and responsible members of society. As a non-profit organization, the cost of expenditure for the education of children is borne through good Samaritans who either adopt children financially and take care of the expenses, or make regular contributions for the welfare of the school.

Education is the key to bringing a change in the world at large. Our small efforts of educating even one child can go a long way. Given our busy schedules, it might not be possible to be physically present to teach them. However, as responsible members of society, with a decent purchasing power, the least we can do is to make a contribution towards the education of children by adopting them financially and taking care of their educational expenses. Do you think it is possible to bring a change in the lives of these children and their families by educating them equally?

वर्तमान समय में टेक्नोलॉजी मोबाइल व लैपटाप का बच्चों में बहुत अत्यधिक बुरा असर पड़ रहा है। बच्चों में इसका प्रभाव जैसे याददाश्त व मन का स्थिर न होना जिससे बच्चों की पढ़ाई में बहुत बुरा असर पड़ रहा है तथा उनका सामाजिक उत्थान न हो पा रहा है तथा उनकी स्मरण शक्ति कमजोर पड़ रही है।

व्यावहारिक ज्ञान और वैचारिक समझ की सहायता से उनमें सीखने की एक नई कला का विकास किया जा सकता है।हमारे आसपास हमेशा एक बच्चा होता है जिसे शिक्षा की ज़रूरत है। समाज के जिम्मेदार सदस्यों के रूप में, कम से कम हम यह कर सकते हैं कि समाज के कमजोर वर्ग के बच्चों की शिक्षा के लिए, उन्हें आर्थिक रूप से अपनाकर और उनके शिक्षा के खर्चों को ध्यान में रखते हुए योगदान दिया जाना चाहिए !

Many organisations have already extended their hand in reaching out to the under-privileged sections of our society in forms of various Corporate Social Responsibility activities. Although several programs are already in place, still much more initiatives like this is required from other remaining Corporates to create a difference and put a smile on their faces.

Education for all is the call of the hour. Specially for the under-privileged. We have to make them educate to certain extent so that they become aware of their potentials, and can earn their livelihood and can also contribute to the society.

प्रिय सर
मेरा कहना है कि आज उन सभी बच्चो को एक उचित अवसर और मार्गदर्शन मिलना चाहिए, जो सुविधाओं कि कमी के साथ-साथ अभाव मे जी रहे हैं I सरकार स्कीम तो निकाल रही है लेकिन ये किस हद तक अंतिम व्यक्ति तक पहुँच रही है ये सिर्फ कागजो पर ही सिमट कर रह जा रह जा रही है आई Iसरकारी विद्यालयों मे प्राइवेट से ज्यादा सुविधा है और सरकार खर्चा भी बहुत कर रही है पर उसका उपयोग सही तरीके से हो उसका भी सही अवमूल्यन सही होना चाहिए I वंचित का फाइदा वंचित को मिलना चाहिए,इस पर सरकार के साथ-साथ हमे भी ध्यान देना है
