Children School Mahurar
(2001 - 2005)
(2001-2005 in Mahurar) Now our school shifted to the next village. How was the starting of the school, we show you here.
This was our school. We rented the building in this village. I t had 3 class rooms, but we had 4 class. A class was under sky outside the building. I asked a teacher "when it is rain what can we do for children outside?". He said "Until rainy season, there is no rain so don't worry".
We had 4 teachers in 2002. They live in the village. They took exam for collage, one of them taught in another school. The other teachers were unemployed. They are educated persons in the village, but in the city, there are high educated people than them. It is difficult to get a job in city for villagers. A female teacher are holding her son in the photo above.
It was first time to learn how to write and read. They are learning how to hold pencil or chalk. The age of students in a class is different. We divided them by their ability. They don't know how old are they by themselves. They have many brothers and sisters, and their parents don't care their birthday.
A girl had handicap in her legs. We gave her a wheel chair. Some friends helped her practicing how to drive it.
Indian way of study. Some poster put up on the wall. It shows abc in hindi. A is for arm(means mongo) like that. One student read it loudly and other students follow. In Class 1, 2, and 3, students started to study in our school first time. At that time, they were studying Hindi, English, and Math. After learning how to write and read, they step forward to learn many subjects.
On the roof. Class 4 students joined here from another school which are located far place. So their uniforms are different. A few students can afford to buy uniform. A man who are standing with crutch, was a student. He is about 17 years old. He was big but he wanted to study.
A few students are very good at study. We expect their future will be bright.
