Get 10,000+ poor children into private schools, enable educational, cultural and sexual safety programs, equip a youth leadership LearnSpace in an Indian state with strong YL presence.
Bal Manch commit to better the lives of children born in poor districts of India’s north-western state of Uttar Pradesh. They run a micro school, do art and culture programs, protest with the kids for rights to a life free from labor, violence, to education … and they git 24,000 poor kids into private schools in a single year(!) by enforcing the Right To Education RTE Act which demands that private schools must reserve 25% of their places tuition-free to children that can’t afford to pay.
They are awesome, because no one knows of the RTE Act, least of all illiterate poor people, so Bal Manch walk into poor districts to tell parents and those merrily send streams of children to private schools! When those complained that they could not pay to equip the kids, BM addressed ministries. When those denied to be responsible, BM raised hell (like they do with the Red Brigade to make police do their job and catch rapists and murderers) and the Ministry of Family, Kids etc. quickly caved in and since pays RTE kids’ equipment!
They deserve our help, because as poor people working as volunteers they cannot afford printing, bus and train travel costs (to activate nearby cities, too), and their monthly needs of $120€ are ridiculously low for middle class city dwellers (or schools or companies) to pay. Let’s do this and see the lovely results play out on our social media through the year!
We seek to fund 1 year of RTE campaign to get 10 to 20,000 more kids into private schools … and a YL LearnSpace to their new learning centre, so that the kids grow up with their generation’s hero*ines, take action … and then continue as teenage youth with the associated Red Brigade’s LearnSpace in the emerging Red Brigae Academy, thereby nurturing youth leadership in dozens of associated schools!
Opening the new Education Centre
This is big news! The former micro school has found a grand follow-up that is spacious and designed to host a YL LearnSpace with hero*ines exhibit, alternating activities aligned with UN Theme Days, welcome YL Volunteers, invite local schools for youth leadership presentations and workshops … a home to fired up youth talents with great hearts for people and planet, a hub to involve parents and community … and a springboard to proceed with Red Brigade Trust crew as teenagers at the emerging Red Brigade Academy's YL LearnSpace.
