Educational Qualification : M.A.(English) - LUCKNOW UNIVERSITY B.Ed - KANPUR UNIVERSITY WORKING AS A HEADMASTER AT PRIMARY SCHOOL SUAGADA, LAKHIMPUR KHERI, U.P.

Work in field of literacy : On 14th Dec. 1999 I joined Basic Education and was posted in a remote area. I found parents did not trust primary schools and teachers. In 2006 I came to Primary school Suagada II Lakhimpur as a Head teacher. I took few steps: Through Nukkad plays and Meetings started convincing parents and children. Renovated school with attractive wall paintings. I had only three rooms and a verandah, I fenced the verandah with iron grill to get extra space for class. Started Parents meetings and convinced mothers. Organized free summer camps every year of Judo Karate, dance and computer classes. Free Sewing training camps for women. Provided tie belt, ID cards besides the Govt. aid of free books and free uniform. Arranged classes for ‘Kanjad Tribes’ children provided clothes, stationery etc. With children started cleaning village in Green Village Campaign. Started Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao Movement in the village. I invite social workers and learned personalities to give motivational lectures

No of Beneficiaries : 200

Social Impact : Very positive and encouraging social impact. Now the Primary school Suagada is made a Model school. First ever school in the district where English Medium education is provided for the poor and down trodden children. 1. Muslim women are now aware of their daughters education. Female enrollment is more than male in my school 2. Now parents have stopped pushing their children to start earning money 3. The village people have stopped throwing garbage here and there 4. People feel proud and are fully satisfied in sending their children to Primary school. 5. Children of ‘Kanjad Tribe’ who were not going to school, are now convinced. 6. Women are benefitted by sewing training camp. They are saving money by stitching clothes at home 7. As a result of Save Girl Child, women have decided not to go for any sonography test 8. I have got success in bringing community close to these Primary schools. As a result not only they offer help but they have stopped criticizing Primary education

Fund Outlay : 50000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : ‘Work itself is proof of your work’. People saw my work, got inspired and helped but this help was in the form of goods not in the form of money. They provided sweater, shoes and bags themselves. Rest is from my own salary.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : Definitely this award will give a recognition to my work and I will feel more enthusiastic to work in the field of education. More people will join me in this fight against illiteracy and ignorance. Rewards and prizes for adults are just like treacle toffees for children and boost up energy.
