Introduction of OEOW Slum School
OEOW Slum School project in the slums of Jaipur, also known as the Pink City, is a non-profit initiative that provides free education to underprivileged children. The project is dedicated to improving the lives of children who live in poverty and do not have access to basic educational resources. Here's a closer look at the background, activities, and impact of this volunteer project;
The volunteer project was started by the founder Nogol Andishehjoo, the founder of One Education One World during the India project visit, who saw the need for education in the slums of Jaipur. She recognized that children in these areas were not getting the education they needed to break the cycle of poverty. The project was launched with the goal of providing free education, uniforms, books, bags, and stationery to children living in the slums.
The project provides education to 120 children from the ages of 4 to 14 years old. The curriculum focuses on basic literacy and numeracy skills, as well as life skills such as hygiene and teamwork with a holistic approach toward the learning and development of a child. The children are taught by local teachers who work closely with the project organizers to create a fun and engaging learning environment. In addition to education, the project also provides the children with uniforms, books, bags, and stationery so that they can attend school with pride and dignity.
Teaching: Volunteers may be involved in teaching basic literacy and numeracy skills to children. They may also teach life skills such as hygiene, teamwork, and problem-solving.
Mentoring: Volunteers may work closely with individual children or small groups to provide guidance, support, and encouragement. They may also act as role models, helping to instill confidence and a sense of purpose in the children.
Organizing activities: Volunteers may help to organize and facilitate extracurricular activities such as sports, arts and crafts, and music. These activities help to keep the children engaged and motivated, and also provide an opportunity for them to develop their skills and interests.
Fundraising: Volunteers may help to raise funds to support the school and its activities. They may organize events, seek donations from individuals and businesses, or write grant proposals to secure funding.
Administrative tasks: Volunteers may help with administrative tasks such as record-keeping, inventory management, and communication with parents and stakeholders.
Overall, volunteering in the OEOW's slum school in Jaipur is a rewarding experience that allows volunteers to make a meaningful difference in the lives of underprivileged children. Volunteers can contribute their skills, time, and resources to help create a brighter future for the children and their families.
