VIJAY KUMAR CHAUHAN -How A Library In A Village In Bihar Is Changing The Lives Of The Students
Kumar Chauhan is a Bihari youth, born to a landless daily-wage-worker family. He migrated to Ludhiana at the young age of 15 for a job. The petty salary he received was not enough to support even his basic necessities. Hence, he decided to come back and continue his studies. He knew the power of education and also encouraged other students by giving them free lessons.
He met Surya Prakash Rai a person with motive to improve educational scenario in Bihar. Which led to origin of PRAYOG by Surya Prakash Rai.
PRAYOG library was set up in a community open space, first day they saw mere 5 students walking but within years time the library was hit and saw a regular students entering. .
Another initiative taken by PRAYOG is to grab peoples attention that is by exposure visit where 5 students were selected to be a part of the visit. First visit was to Parivartan NGO and the second visit was in Bhutan ,it act as a confidence booster as many students started getting connected with them.
PRAYOG Team prepare kids for debate and make them socially aware.
Most of families were worried that their children from high community restricted children from backward class, thus Surya Prakash Rai took initiative of clearing illusion that persisted among them.. Today, the same kids from all the communities stay together in the same room during exposure visits, hug each other, and share their food. It is a great achievement,
Apart from lack of awareness, a low teacher-student ratio was another challenge.Kids were more willing to attend tuition classes than school. This problem was solved through an interesting initiative which involved older students mentoring the younger ones.
Education is a powerful tool that can gain victory against all odds, poverty, superstitious, unhygienic lifestyle and other social issues.
Thus PRAYOG has enlightened the younger lives by showing them the way to success.
