About the Fundraiser
Having spent the last four years working in the social care field, I, Rajesh Shokeen have come to realize that my passion lies in helping people who are less advantaged. The one thing I have always known that I’d like to do with my life is to help people so, on June 2006, I started an NGO, Smt & Shri Diwan Memorial social welfare & rural development society, catering to the nutrition, health and educational needs of underprivileged children in Sirsa, Haryana. My aim is to ensure the provision of proper health delivery services and propagate awareness among the underprivileged regarding children’s needs. Realizing my dreams by getting the education of underprivileged children sponsored on a regular basis in Study Hall Education Foundation Shri Diwan Memorial Public School.
But now, the time demands more support from us for these children. Many of them are not able to come to school because of the distance from their home, some of them are able to afford the amount of transportation, therefore they will not come to attend the school and remain uneducated. For this, we have to think about to do something that helps them. We need some vehicles that could help them to bring to school or also their parents will never be worried about their education. We have no personal school bus, we hire a private vehicle for school transportation but that is very expensive. So we need a personal School Bus for children to going to school smoothly.
We aim to educate more and more children by equipping them with school background and enhance their intellectual awareness by learning, critical thinking, and communication. This will help the children to thrive in life, personally and professionally. We will do this by providing a complementary curriculum within the aforesaid schools. From this learning environment, children will learn holistically. At the present stage, we need three to five vehicles for these children for their transportation. School Bus is very important requirement of our children's. Because every day children's are going to school and which is 8 kilometers (16 KM both side) distance from our children's home. Children's can't go by walking because 8 km distance is a big distance for children.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
In the 21st century, uneducated people do not have any important role to thrive in society. Hence, to impact technical skills, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills and achieve excellence in professional and personal life educating children is a must.
The kids are not equipped to understand and handle/ stop disrespectful/ abusive /violent behavior. This stops them from dealing with the situation and the aftermath of it. Therefore, equipping them with this knowledge and introducing them to self-reliance through education can be helpful for children.
There are innumerable benefits of getting children educated such as improving their quality of life and the people around them, enhancing their skills for the betterment of the society, and thereby growth of the nation as a whole.
HOW ARE WE DOING IT?
We aim to solve the problem by providing the students with a good education by getting them admitted in exemplary schools. The curriculum will be rooted in deepening children's understanding of self and addressing the problems faced by their communities. This will also build a greater sense of responsibility ensuring that the students do their bit towards giving back to their society while learning life skills. Our Biggest Challenge is school transportation, there is 8 Kilometer distance between school and children's home, which is very difficult to go to school regularly. We are hiring a private van but that is more expensive and also not come on time and regularly. So sometimes school is missing.
As per the increasing number of children, we urgently need some requirement of three to five vehicles for 450 n above students. These vehicles help these children in such a great way, as we can handle the transportation of these kids from their home to school. A car or bus donation helps us in possessing a vehicle that will make their routines easier. This gives us the much-needed independence to carry on those children who were not able to come to school due to the lack of transportation during bad weather or any economic reasons. Such that their parents will never resist them from attending the school, as this service is free of cost.
