Story




Bangalore Rural Educational and Development Society (BREADS) is a non-governmental organization founded in the year 1993, BREADS is dedicated to the empowerment of the marginalized poor in Kerala and Karnataka states of India irrespective of their caste, creed, gender or political affiliations. BREADS works through Don Bosco partners at grass root level and works with children who are engaged in child labour, given in marriage and have dropped out of school. 


Hi, This is Nibedita! I am raising funds for BREADS which is working towards restoring the lives of children who have dropped out of school due to various reasons and bring them back to the sphere of Education by helping them join BRIDGE SCHOOLS run by Don Bosco Institutions.


HOW BRIDGE SCHOOLS WORK?


For instance, if a child had left school at the age of 10 (approx. in Class 5) and after being rescued by BREADS - if the child's age is 15 (should be in Class 7 or 8). The bridge Schools train the child so that he/she can grasp, understand & learn the contents which were missed when the child wasn't attending school between the age of 10 and 15. After the bridge course and the special training, the child is prepared to join a Regular school because the existing knowledge gap is attended to by the bridge school for 1year. 


HOW WILL IT HELP?


It is India's big education challenge where rural schools have low attendance and high drop out rates. According to the ASER (Annual Status of Education Report, 2016), 3.5% of children between 11- 14 yrs and 13.5% between 15-16yrs were dropouts. Children make up the principle resources/assets of any country. Their development becomes of utmost importance as one thinks of societal development and the best method of harnessing national human resources is to care for the children.It is critical to have a mechanism to identify children who are at risk of dropping out and create opportunities for them to be introduced to adequate infrastructure and training and BREADS is addressing the same.


 Many of the less privileged/ rescued children are already studying in our boarding/rehabilitation centres and others are participating in our supplementary education classes. BREADS regularly follow up on these children to ensure the continuity of their education and to contact teachers and parents to ensure the improved education standard for the sponsored children. We are at present planning to bring back 25 more children over and above the innumerable children who are already in under the care of DB BREADS and need Rupees 3.75 LAKH  to send them to school.
