Le besoin : quel problème tentez-vous de résoudre ?
School to School (S2S) turns one’s wastage into resource for another.There is abundance of resources in cities with nuclear families & rising incomes.Village people still struggle for basics of life-Food,cloth & shelter.Education,learning and recreation have different meaning for children in these disparate groups and urban people are completely isolated from rural realities.
Discussions on education policies,teacher-students ratio,curriculum and similar big issues are common but education of millions still suffer due to lack of basics amenities. Thousands of girls leave schools due to lack of toilets or kids leave due to non availability of basics like stationery,books & notebooks. Furniture,games,labs etc hardly exist & Uniforms,shoes,water bottles are like luxuries!!
La solution: quelle solution proposez-vous ? Soyez précis !
S2S is nationwide initiative; building bridge between hundreds of urban & village schools by using tones of underutilized material as tool to open dialogue make two ends aware each other’s existence & instigate empathy. One end’s abundance is used to fulfill educational gaps at other end!!
S2S makes city kids aware of their village counterparts struggles. Multiple stakeholders; kids,school management,teachers,parents,corporates etc connect with the campaign & feel enthused. We see a change in their attitudes & opinion once they understand that the big gap is just in resources & opportunities. This builds strong long term empathy. In villages this reduces monetary pressure on parents, encouraging continuance of their children’s education. Kids get material as reward for changes in behavioural benchmarks like attendance, cleanliness, discipline etc. This is a big morale booster plus nurtures their self respect & dignity.
Le système : décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant de quelle façon votre initiative fonctionne ; indiquez vos principales activités.
In urban India often school kids discard stationary & other items like water bottles, pencil box, school bag, shoes for flimsy reasons like new cartoon character in market or slight fade of colour or need for minor repair.Since all stakeholders around urban child are driven by consumerism; school management, parents, peer groups, teachers, frugality is not inculcated among children. S2S is sensitizing urban kids living a protected life, about rural realities, negating any superior/inferior feeling. Re-use & Recycling of urban material extends its lifecycle, reducing pollution in cities. A kid in village school has to walk 2-5 kms to & from school, without proper shoes, in scorching heat, with no water at school. A water bottle makes a difference whether he or she will continue schooling or not. For a village child recurrent expenditure of notebook, pencil or rubber becomes burden for parents struggling for two meals. For countless children, school uniform is also an additional piece of clothing, an important thing for them. In bare Aanganwadis; government’s children health intervention point for malnutrition, vaccination & over all child health care; there is nothing to attract children to come except mid day meal that they pick up & leave. The moment it is filled with colourful toys, games, posters etc., it brings in more children, getting them to stay longer, engaging them thus assisting in overall objective of these institutions..

There is government’s Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan as well as a lot of good work by many agencies. A lot of focus is there on issues like policy, infrastructure but a very little attention on gaps like behavioural change & there are faulty delivery systems on basic school needs.The biggest challenge is the traditional mind set and the way many such initiatives are operating.Often when city schools deal with less privileged it’s about us & them, donor & receiver, charity & beneficiary!!
Our work is about bringing about an attitudinal & perception change in city schools about giving, being responsible,valuing our resources,caring for the dignity of the less privileged,in villages its about filling gaps & complementing the ongoing work,making the school going experience more holistic & complete!!

Quels sont les obstacles qui risquent de freiner votre projet ? Comment pensez-vous les surmonter ?
1. Continuity in material supply from urban schools: They take up S2S campaigns at different times without committed annual involvement, directly affecting our ability to provide continuous support to rural schools. Sustained sharing of successes & failures in implementation with them, highlighting importance of continuity, this awareness helps address the issue.
2. Partner groups lack of understanding on connecting behavioral changes with material distribution: Usual perception on distributing material as charity is first communication barrier we face. When partner groups see results in small experiments, they get motivated to use material to make a lot of changes in children’s learning experience.

Popularly known as the Clothing Man, Anshu champions one of the three basic needs of any human beings; cloth (out of cloth, food & shelter). Today GOONJ works in parts of 21 states and handles 80 to 100 tones material every month. In the initial days on a visit to a small village school, having almost no infrastructure or facilities in a hill state Anshu saw a group of students waiting while the other group ate their mid day meal provided in the school. On enquiring he found that since there were only 30 plates, the kids, for whom prime attraction for coming to school was mid day meal, had to wait till the plates were cleaned & served again. This simple but critical need deeply moved Anshu. In another incident he felt a deep satisfaction as he saw a 5-6 year old village school girl blossom with happiness when she got a fish shaped pencil box; for her it was not just a pencil box, it was a FISH SHAPED pencil box.. the utter joy on her face was priceless..
