India has the largest number of child laborers under the age of 14 in the world. Although poverty is often cited as the cause underlying child labor, other factors, including discrimination, social exclusion, lack of quality education, or parent attitudes toward child labor, as well as also need to be considered. At local, state and central government levels and across society as a whole, there are many concerns about the quality of teacher training, the curriculum, learning achievement assessments, and the efficiency of school management, especially in government schools which is the vehicle of education for under resourced and disadvantaged families who do not have extra income to pay for school fees. Given the scarcity of quality schools, many children (including 60% of girls) drop out before completing five years of primary education; many of those who stay on learn little. According to the “Annual Status of Education” 2012 report, 67% of fifth grade students, typically 10 years of age, don’t know to read numeric 1 to 100, 52% leave school before fifth grade, 65% of fifth grade students don’t know how to multiply, while 86% of these fifth grade students are unable to do division. 55% of eighth grade students are unable to read in English. Pratham, a leading NGO in the field of education, authors the Annual Status of Education reports. This annual report has become the credible report of record, and is relied upon by academics, civil society and the government. To address these problems in Jamnagar, Chaitanya has implemented a unique idea: the “Happy Children Center” Project to supplement the inadequate education offered to pupils in the slum areas of Jamnagar. The idea is to bring schooling and various amenities such as audio-visual aids, libraries, laboratories, and computers to urban or deprived kids. Originally, Chaitanya had ‘adopted’ 125 dropout children in the slums for education. Chaitanya reenrolled them in school, provided them with school uniforms, organised programs, and worked with them for seven years. During this time, Chaitanya observed that these children had difficulties in school so they started the Happy Children Center to more closely work with the children to help them keep up with their academic demands. Chaitanya teachers act as individual tutors for the children, working closely with them on the concepts they are learning in the classroom, making sure they gain the required understanding and competencies of the State Board of Gujarat syllabus. What is unique about the pedagogy in the teaching is that the teachers and instructors try to make learning fun. They are teaching the same fact-filled syllabi, but use techniques to make it interesting instead of the straight rote of the typical government school classroom. The students benefit from the individual attention. Aside from teaching the syllabus, the Happy Children Center also has cultural events, celebrations of the different holidays, games and singing and other activities that bring some joy to the children. Currently, Chaitanya has established 10 centers in 10 different slums. The centers operate daily from 5pm - 7pm, Monday through Saturday, each with 30 children that participate. The mix of students, whether it be dropout, child laborers, children of migrants, children of beggars, government school-going children, or permanently truant children differs in each center according to the surrounding population. By arranging these and the other various joyful activities as stated above Chaitanya tries to raise the educational standard of the students and continues to be committed to enrolling drop-out children back into school. Chaitanya however, with sufficient funds, would like to rent a physical structure so that it can provide more exciting resources for the children that expose them to the technology in the world today and integrate these technologies into teaching and learning. Chaitanya would like to introduce laptops and tablets, a projector, and smart phone apps to integrate ”Learn with Fun” concepts while familiarizing the students with today’s technology. The overall target is to provide up to 3000 student, which equal to approximately 5% of the child population living in the Jamnagar slums. “Never doubt that a small group of people can change the world- indeed it is the only thing that ever has !” -Margaret Mead
