As part of outreach, our counselor Anusha visited Brahmanapalli village, where she found out that a girl named Venkata Subha, age 15 years was going to get married. On the same day, our child line team along with the ICDS supervisor, ICPS PO, Counselor, RI went to the location. There they examined the details of the girl and confirmed her age. Later they gave counseling to the child and her parents not to do marriage to the girl until she turns 18 years old and also explained them about the child marriage act, atrocities caused by the child marriage. Our team produced the girl and her parents before CWC and took a confirmation from her parents that not to do marriage before she turns 18 years old, and informed them that if they try to do so, severe action will be taken against them. On the next day our team member made a call to the local anganwadi teacher and ensured that the marriage got canceled.

After a conversation with the headmaster, the headmaster gave the list of students who are irregular for more than 15 days. We found that a boy was missing school for some time. Immediately our team member went to the boy’s location, but the boy went outside for fishing and having fun. Team members took the child to the home and gave counseling to the child and his parents about the importance of children’s education. Later, her mother got him fresh up and dressed well. Our team member took him to the school and informed the head master. After a few days, to follow up the case Harish made a call to the head master, he replied that the child is attending the school regularly.

Firstly, our foundation name itself depicts our main motto which is to provide quality education, train students in arts and to maintain good health. As the pandemic went down, students are back to school. Our volunteers started focusing on each and every student. Unfortunately, students completely forgot the basics during pandemic. To excel in academics, one must have a strong grip on basics. Our volunteers started classes by revising the basics and later they moved to the lessons. To ensure good handwriting, students were practicing Handwriting worksheets. Students were also able to read English rhymes, Telugu poems without mistakes. This is happening only because of all the efforts and interests those volunteers and students are putting on. Good results from students will encourage the volunteers and the whole team as well.
Drawing is an activity which brings out the imagination of students to put on paper with the help of color pencils .This talent can be evolved by conducting competitions on different themes and making each and every student participate actively. In this month we have conducted drawings on Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, themes of Indian soldiers and others. In these competitions students have drawn the portrait of Shivaji, which was amazing. Along with this, students have also drawn many other drawings.
Elocution is an amazing skill, it helps students develop speaking skills. In order to speak about a topic, students do research, which ultimately makes them aware of some new topic which is out of syllabus. The major advantage of this skill is it will put their stage fear away. On the birth anniversary of Chatrapati Shivaji, students spoke well about his history. Every student did a spectacular job. On international mother language day, students spoke about the importance of Telugu language in day to day life.
Sports are a major activity which keeps students physically fit and active. In all our adopted schools, our volunteers are training students in many different sports such as broad jump, shuttle run, running, kabaddi, kho-kho, medicine ball and so on. Our volunteers make students practice these games daily on a regular basis.
The major fulfillment in sports for this month was, a notification got released from the telangana government regarding entrance in SPORTS school. Students from Nizamabad, Nimmapally and Mamidipally participated in this event. Number of students were 11, 12 and 5 respectively. For this, initial selection was done based on the height and weight according to their age. Out of this total, 3 students got selected for the state level competitions. Hope, they will achieve it. This was possible because of the student’s interest and volunteers’ efforts.
In this month LV Prasad eye institute team visited Mamidipally school and did free checkup for students and as well as the staff. They also imparted the knowledge of how to maintain good vision and foods that need to be taken to improve eyesight. In Gopal Nagar School, a local doctor visited and performed the same.
We have distributed EArtH foundation bags to the students in Nizamabad School. Honorable MLA Chennamaneni Ramesh garu attended this event .He appreciated our foundation staff and the management about the work we do. Later he distributed bags to the children, and had good interaction with the students and the staff. Our students did dance performances.
