The BookAid project will provide model papers, subject guides, literature and other difficult-to-obtain materials to help students in remote villages and slum areas to prepare for board examinations. Our target focus for this year is on children of migrant workers.
It is evident that the coronavirus outbreak in India and other countries may soon trigger an unprecedented recession as millions of migrant workers travel from packed cities to rural villages. Months of lockdown has left nothing in the hands of these daily wage migrant workers. While they struggle to keep their families in survival mode, investing in their children’s education will be their least priority. Migrating back from cities to villages has left their children’s futures bleak. Various organizations are working on various aspects of their plight to provide help.
Be Educated has taken the initiative to help these children by providing exam preparation books (subject guides) worth of Rs 2000 for each child for those taking board examination in 2021. Our goal is to help 400 such children in India and Nepal.
Anticipated Phases and Milestones
Students can submit their filled forms online or they can send to the given address with attached mark sheets for 9th/10th grade. We will provide an option of filling out forms at various Be Educated library locations. The project coordinator will review the forms and approve. The coordinator will also make sure that the ordered books are delivered to the approved students.
All the forms will be uploaded to the project website and all applications (offline and online) will be made available for sponsorship.
Each BookAid sponsorship costs $30, and multiple children can be sponsored. Our goal is to handover requested books to children by the end of September.
