HELP IN HER EDUCATION

“My name is Priya Thakur. I’m 12 years old and I live in Nandgaon. I clean our house everyday and help my mother in household chores. I make cow dung cake and collect dried wood for cooking. I used to beg in the streets until the Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula opens a free school in our village. I started to study there at 6th grade, now I’m in 8th grade. My favorite subject is English. Everyday I chant 6 rounds of Hare Krishna mantra in my beads. I want to become a doctor someday. My two sisters are also studying in Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula. I would like to thank my sponsor, Mr. Peter Joseph. You can also help other girls in our village to get education. Thank you very much.”

Girls who marry young stay at home. They don’t finish school. And they will soon become locked in a cycle of illiteracy, poverty, ill health and ultimately, powerlessness. Let us break this vicious cycle by empowering her through education and skill development training. Girls need to be in school- apart from education this can prevent them falling into child marriage and exploitation

A GIRL CHILD IS NO LESS THAN A BOY CHILD

Some families in India are so MALE-CENTRIC that they end up with half a dozen girls in the hope of producing at least one male baby; the picture above is a family in Nandgaon who end up with 11 girl child in an attempt to have a boy child. Four of their daughters are attending the Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula free school for the girls in Nandgaon.
Most girls in our school are from underprivileged families who would otherwise not be able to attend school. Many girls that are now in school were used to either beg in the area or were constrained to household activities with no hope of ever getting educated.
Girls are usually seen as burden in the rural areas, with no concept of educating them and are married off early, sometimes even as a child. This puts them in a very dangerous situation where they are forced into adult roles at a very young age.
The Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula is an attempt to educate girls at least up to higher school and give them vocational training. This will enable them to be literate and professionally independent. This school adopts a holistic approach to education, a combination of Indian vedic culture and modern education. The emphasis is to enable a girl child to face the challenges of modern world while rooted in Indian spiritual culture.
