- Burmese Colonies of Jammu
One sight that bothers to almost every individual of the society is when we see little kids begging and rag picking, and doing meagre work all around the city. It was a longing disturbance for most of our members too, and therefore, our team reached to one of such rag picking hub at Bhagwati Nagar.
ABCL(Any body can learn) :- As per the Right to Education Act (RTE), education is a fundamental right of every child aged between 6-14 years and specifies minimum norms in elementary schools.
AAROH believes whatever the addressing subject be whether healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there’s nothing better than education to commence.
Rag picking children more than 100 in strength, in various regions of Jammu, who are able and eager to learn but don’t go to school due to various reasons.
After a span of about 10 months, we can proudly say that there has been a sensible and progressive change in the attitudes, skills and knowledge of all the children. And the best part was that we could admit approximately 30 such children into their nearby government schools under the vision that “Right to Education’ is a fundamental right for everyone, irrespective of their nationality or anything else.
It can simply be concluded that these chaste minds, who could have otherwise easily been excited into some evil of the society, have now altered their first steps towards a succeeding as well as promising future.
