Accessibility Of Education For Disadvantaged Children
Total Articles: 1
Illiteracy is a sad reality in India, one that is confirmed by staggering figures, showing that at least 35 million children aged 6-14 years do not attend school. As known and proved many times, education plays a major role in structuring children’s mental development. It is also the reason behind a lot of development in the world as education helps in the progress of individuals, countries, and thus the globe at large.
Children who do go to school also have a strong probability of dropping out of school. Census 2011 reports reflect that more than 99 million children in total have dropped out of school, i.e 1 in 4 children of school-going age. This is an uncomfortable number, and varied reasons contribute to its rampant nature. Following are some of the factors:
Financial Constraints - Families from humble backgrounds, basically barely making ends meet, tend to compromise on education first. Many families still consider schooling to be an extra-curricular activity that is meant only for the affluent. Therefore, to save money from ‘unnecessary spending’, they tend to withdraw their child’s school enrolment, thus causing bigger push-back later in life.
Family Background - Families that are not educated themselves, often tend to give lesser importance to the fact that education offers innumerable tools to enhance one’s logical thinking, personality building, sensitivity towards world issues etc.
Child Labour - Child abuse in India is a long-standing as well as persistent evil of the society. There are many ways that abuse is forced upon children, one of them being child labour. India has 33 million working children between the ages of 5-18 years. The children are paid minimum wages or less, with no special treatment given - rather their working conditions are worse, and often hazardous for their mental and physical health. Many parents, who are experiencing extreme poverty, tend to believe that children must also pull their weight in the house by bringing in daily wages, not realizing the profound negative impact child labour has on the well-being of children; besides the practice being an unlawful activity.
There are many more factors that contribute to children being devoid of their basic right to education. But CRY (Child Rights and You), one of the most established and impactful non profit organizations in India has encouraged, enabled and uplifted more than 3 million disadvantaged children across the country.
From an elaborate child education plan to protection from malnutrition, CRY supports not-so-privileged children in most spheres of their life. You can be of service as well - log on to www.cry.org and learn more about the organization and how you can be a real part of it.
