Light of education to enter this tribal girl life again


Kanyaka, a visually challenged girl, will return to school on Monday.The tribal girl from Anandamkudy in Kuttampuzha panchayat had not gone to school after finishing seventh standard. All arrangements have been made for her to resume schooling at G.V.H.S.S, Neriamangalam, following a survey launched by the district project office of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) to identify school dropouts and children who have not been admitted to any school during this academic year. She will be staying at the tribal hostel at Neriamangalam.

A surgery will also be performed to correct her vision. She is staying along with her grandmother Kalyani and brother Manjesh, who was also asked by the SSA team to be regular at the nearby school.

 The survey has already helped identify children from tribal and migrant worker belts who are not going to schools. They will be given school accessories and training to overcome learning problems besides making available service of education volunteers.

Health and educational awareness classes will be held for parents and life skill camps and study tours for children.An education register is being prepared at the village-level to ensure that all children have access to schooling.
