Children Day 14 November

Over 800 children came together at J India garden  in Gurgaon to celebrate childhood. These are  from four different projects  that cater to children who are less privilege and less advantage in the society in and around Rajiv Nagar vicinity and other parts of Gurgaon.
The event is a symbolic observation of Pt Nehru’s birth anniversary. The occasion showcased Children’s talents in various fields of Arts and Entertainment. The event is an expression of ideas and their creative minds. 
The event is organized to create a space where children have the freedom of expression and interact among each other.
Beside class room learning it is an extra effort to make Children’s Day, not just a day to mark an occasion, but a meaningful and memorable day for Children.
Children are the future generations of the country. Their physically growth is essential and so is their Education. Another key area of growth for children is their minds and mental well being. One of the basic aims of the event is to create a space that will enhance their thinking and develop their outlook and thoughts so that they grow up into responsible citizens of the country.
Our effort is to re-visit laws, convention, state commitments for implementations in spirit and practice. The Constitution of India has clearly laid down children’s rights.Article 21: Right to free and compulsory elementary education for all children in the 6-14 year age group. Article 24- Right to be protected from any hazardous employment till the age of 14 years. Article 30 (e) - Right to be protected from being abused and forced by economic necessity to enter occupations unsuited to their age or strength Article 39 (f)- Right to equal opportunities and facilities to develop in a healthy manner and in conditions of freedom and dignity and guaranteed protection of childhood and youth against exploitation and against moral and material abandonment
Moreover, the 1990 Convention on the Rights of the Child states four basic entitlement :the right to survival; the right to develop to the fullest; protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; the right to participate fully in family, cultural and social life
On Children’s day we once again pledge to strive for Children’s entitlement to their full potential growth. Besides our day to day work towards educating children and enhancing their knowledge and growth, We believe that Children’s day is one such occasion to reach out to a larger audience, that our message for the right, privilege and opportunity for children will reach at all levels of authority, the society and concern individuals.

The initiative is taken up by Mera Parivar, an NGO working on Child Rights with a collaborative efforts of The Helping Hand a social entrepreneur, Wheel on rasoi, Kellogg India,etc

Children elementary education

Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 – ‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’ – is one of the most important and challenging tasks in international development. In order to fulfil it, we require a better understanding of why progress and the impact of interventions varies so widely by context. One striking gap in our knowledge here is a lack of analysis as to how education systems interact with political contexts that they operate in (Rajya Sabha Passes Child Labour Bill That Allows Work In Family ...19 July 2016 )
The sever lack of supporting facilities is further marred by ever increasing problem of dropouts from the primary level , as well as at the high school level . Which become burning problem and hurdle for promotion of education and making every one educated? At least finishing high school level is taken as basic indicator of success of this initiative. The dropout rate  still hover around 40%, from elementary till 8th grade.
The school dropout is a perpetual problem, that needs innovative intervention,  a composite approach, as this issue, is the manifestation of complex social-economic-political  and cultural  factors.
Mera Parivar, which is involved in promoting foundational education for slum children, has provided basic foundational education to over 5000 children for last 8 years in the Rajiv Nagar slum areas, of Gurgaon ,Haryana.
During the course of working with the slum children , it has also faced the problem of dropouts even at the slum levels, through it provided composite programme for promoting education, nutrition and enrollment for the children in to formal schools.

Looking at the ever increasing problem of drops out , Mera Parivar has made this special initiative to promote re-enrollment of drop out children specially in the slum areas of Rajiv Nagar Gurgaon .

There are many  reasons for dropping out of school . The primary reason is economic situation of the poor and impoverished rural and urban families. They are mostly daily wage earners.  As the parents do not have enough money to meet their basic food need, they cannot think of meeting other social need like education and health care etc. Adding to that they do not feel education will help them addressing their basic needs. They think if one child goes to school, two earning hands are lost. As child labour, the child can earn at least some wage per day.  Rajya Sabha Passes Child Labour Bill That Allows Work In Family ...19 July 2016

Empowering underprivledge Youth

Nutan is a 21 years old girl who lives in Rajiv Nagar Gurgaon with her parents and siblings. She has two brothers and two sisters. Her father works as a Supervisor in Sports Company. The family came from a small village of Uttar Pradesh, and has been living in Gurgaon for 15 years. However, Nutan came to Gurgaon only one year back, because her parents left her behind in the village to nurse her aging grandparents.
Nutan completed her 12th standard in their village and was unable to pursue her further studies for her parents are not at all aware of girl child education. They have the wrong opinion that the sole responsibility of woman is to confine at home and do all the household activities. It is also the traditional practice in illiterate Indian family which is against the norms of women welfare. As such, Nutan was left without any choice, so she discontinued her studies and stays at home, obeying her parents. What a pity!
Nutan is a very active girl, and she wants to accomplish her dreams. She prefers to go out of the four corners of the wall and do something else to uplift their family social-economic statues. She has been looking for ways and means. To her fortune, she came to learn about Mera parivar through her neighbor.  After a long persuasion, Nutan’s parent permitted her to go for training in Mera  Parivar center.  She got herself enrolled in the beauty parlor training stream, and attends the class regularly. She gets her hands in the course and fares very well day by day. She quotes that Meraparivar is quite a right place to accomplish her dreams. She is planning to open a beauty parlor of her own after she has completed her training.
