Project Dots & Loops
Winter jackets for 100 girls in Rajasthan
This winter, Dots and Loops worked with Rajasthan Samgrah Kalyan Sansthan (RSKS) to provide winter uniforms (a warm jacket), a water bottle, socks & school shoes for needy school girls. A new action in our joint Dots & Loops Education Fund.
We received the following report from our local partner.
The parents of these girl children were rural farmers, masons, daily wages labour, painters, truck drivers etc. These rural girls had scored very well marks in their classes and belonged from the poor economical background family.
So in order to provide these girls warmness in the harsh winter and also to encourage them to study more diligently, RSKS India with the valuable support Dots & Loops was able to provide them the things they needed the most.
The selection was done from 6th to 10th class topper girl who did their best in the last year examination and scored very good marks. In the selection process the RSKS team took topper students list from the schools & went door to door to do the baseline survey for this program and selected the 100 best suitable girls from 10 different rural villages for this program. RSKS India team then collected their documentation like residential address proof, government Id proof, school marks sheet etc and then a survey questionnaire was filled of these girls which contained all the information about her and her family.
After the distribution program, RSKS team went to the house of these girl children to take feedback from them and their family members in order to know about the impact of the program as well as to make the program better in future.
The attendance of the girl children were also verified by the school administration and the program was praised by everyone.
The parents were happy and proud of their children and this program surely motivated other community members to support girl child education and also other children to study and score good marks. All of these 100 rural school girls would be able to wear new school dress and protect themselves from the harsh winter and also the water bottle would be helpful for them in the coming summers.
