Jamshedpur, Aug 14: On the eve of International Youth Day, People for Change, a non-profit organization in Jamshedpur that works with children, young people and women from marginalized and underserved communities, opened up 2 community study centers ‘Shiksha Protsahan Kendra’ for rural children in Tudi and Tirildih villages of Potka block in East Singhbhum district.
“We also work towards enriching children and youth through journeys and citizenship action projects. These centers were opened up for smooth transitioning of children who have deviated from learning due to the pandemic for over 18 months. This was also done to bring them back on track to school education along with essential training on life-skills. People for change also constantly engages with the Government, UNICEF, TSRDS, Tata Motors, colleges and schools in various projects, in Jharkhand, to bring about a progressive change and establish self to society journeys in the society, “ said a member of People for Change.
He informed that these centers will facilitate 500 children and will enhance the learning levels in these children who have lost touch with the most basic forms of education. These centers will be led by young teachers trained by People for Change.
Dipantari Sardar, Mukhiya of Tentla Panchayat, and Gram Pradhan were the esteemed guests for the event. Urmila Hembrom and Bobby Mahato (teachers) along with Nora Samad, Vaibhav Pratap Singh, Naveen Kumar, Anjali Seshadri, Khushi Maity and Ayush Bannerjee from People for Change also attended the programme.
