CATEGORY: SOCIAL WORK
In the slums of rural areas, socio economic desperateness makes the people easy victims of anti social aliments and often makes them commit heinous crimes. Focusing on this, I made the point to educate and motivate the children of slums in rural areas as they are more under privileged than the children of the urban areas. It has become my permeant task and I want to achieve my goal of sending each and every child of the slum to school. It was very difficult to motivate the children since their parents were against it. Therefore, I started with counselling their mothers and other females, first. I got many of them to give up their bad habits like chewing tobacco, drinking and having intoxicants, drugs, and indulging in other harmful things. After that I conducted day to day classes, monitoring in their own hutments and vicinity. I am proud to become one of the change makers who has been successful in making the lives of thousands of students and their mothers, better. I have helped them to get free of their addiction and become responsible and praiseworthy citizens. Education has brought about a massive transformation in them. They often quarreled with each other under the influence of drugs but with proper guidance, they have understood the disadvantages of it. We are happy to see that the people [slum] are making others aware of cleanliness with us and convincing them to leave tobacco. The atmosphere of peace and love is being created in the house. Our work is appreciated by all, from the village head to the government officials.
