Thrissur District, Kerala State
I am Deepa Suresh, mother of Vishnu Suresh, a 9th Standard of Deepthi HS Thalore. My son, Vishnu is a Hearing Impaired Child. He faced difficulty in understanding the lessons thoroughly, but he was fond of making and repairing electronic devices. When his Resource Teachers and Teachers identified this skill, they supported him and thus he participated in Science Exhibition.
The service of Resource Teacher is available at the school three days a week. The teacher understands his problem and gives sufficient support in his classroom activities. She uses flash cards, pictures and other TLMs to ensure his comprehension. Resource Teacher, Shailaja recognized his skill in drawing and supported him. He participated in Kerala State Special School Youth Festival conducted in Kollam on 25th, 26th and 27th October 2018. He won A Grade in Pencil Drawing.
He gets Speech Therapy from BRC Kodakara and receives Remedial Teaching also. This improves his confidence level and now he is able to talk and he behaves like a normal student. I would like to thank H.M Babu Master and RT Shailaja Teacher and all his teachers and friends for supporting him and giving him confidence to face his life.

Identification of Out of school children through Household Survey and enrollment through Yearly Enrollment Drive, ‘Vidyalaya Chalo tripura...
Kurnool Seasonal Hostel (SC10838)Sunday, 8th Jul 2018
I am Deepa, resident from the Melkatayur village, dropped out of school after the death of my father when I was studying in VII standard. I remained out of school for 6 months. SSA and Hand in Hand staff identified and convinced me to continue my education. I was enrolled in the Bharathiyar RSTC on 25/10/2014 through sustained counseling where I completed VIII standard. Later I was mainstreamed in Manampathy Government Higher Secondary School (Enrollment No: 9130) (UDISE Code – 33030301503) to pursue IX standard. I stayed in the RSTC and continued till X standard securing 377 in March 2017Board exam. My aim is to become a Bank Manager and will work towards achieving that goal.
I am Menaka. I am from Pallakulam in Vilathikulam block. I have two younger brothers. My parents are Mr. Palpandi and Mrs. Padmavathi. As there was no school nearby in our village, I had to work in a brick kiln along with my parents, at the age of seven. When I worked in a brick kiln, I was identified by Sr Punitha an NGO in Vilathikulam and admitted in NCLP Vilathikulam in 2002. When I comlpleted Std V, I was admitted in Alloysius Girls HSS (DISE Co:33280101906), Thoothukudi in 2005. I scored 316 and 828 in X and XII respectively. After the successful completion of my schooling, I completed my B.A., Degree in English at MS University College Nagalapuram. Then I did my professional course B.Ed., in Chandy College of Education, Thoothukudi. Now, I am working as a warden in RSTC,Vilathikulam.
I am very grateful to NCLP,Vilathikulam and NGO, Power Healee Trust, Vilathikulam. If I had not been identified at the right time, I would have spent my life like other laborer’s in a brick kiln. Thank you.
Life of despair:
My name is S.Vijay. I belong to a very poor family. My family’s economy compelled me to discontinue my studies before I could complete VI standard during the year 2011-2012. In order to help my mother, I started working as a sales person.
At this juncture I was identified by the supervisor and Block Resource Teacher Educator of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA) during their survey in our area. They gave counseling to me and my mother, and explained the significance of education to us. As we both were convinced and got interested in continuing my education, they admitted me in Std VI in the special training centre (NRSTC) at Adhi Dravidar Welfare Primary School (ADWPS) (DISE code: 33151004601) campus in Milaguparai, Trichy District.
I must mention here the earnest efforts of the Educational Volunteer Mrs. Uma who took special care of me and encouraged me to involve in studies. So I gradually got interest in studies and started learning to read and write. She also taught me painting as well as making handicrafts. After the completion of special training, I was enrolled in Adhi Dravidar Welfare Higher Secondary School, Milaguparai (DISE code: 33151004602).
My Achievement and Gratitude
I regularly attended the school and now I have completed X standard successfully scoring 294 marks. The special training given to me was very much helpful to me and I am happy to extend my thanks to all the SSA Staff and Educational Volunteer (EV) who guided me to lead my life in the right path towards a bright future.
I am Kumarasen from Lalapettai in Karur District. My Family belongs to Below Poverty Line category. Due to my family circumstances, I discontinued my school education while studying VII standard. When my mother passed away it led me to total depression. Hence, I was left under the care of my grandmother in Mannachanallur, Tiruchirappalli District.
Got back my education:
My uncle, who came to know about the activities of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Tiruchirappalli, motivated and guided me to continue my education. When I met the Supervisor of SSA, he gave good counseling to me which made me realize the importance of education in my life. With the help of my uncle, I joined SSA’s Residential Special Training Centre in Samayapuram, Mannachanallur. I was trained in that Centre during the academic year 2009-10 and studied VIII standard. Subsequently on 31st March, 2010. I was mainstreamed in Panchayat Union Middle School, Koothur, No.1. Tollgate, Mannachanallur Block. (DISE code: 33150301801). On passing VIII standard, I got admitted in 9th standard in Government Boys Higher Secondary School, Mannachanallur (DISE code: 33150300102).
Came out with flying colors:
I continued my education in the same school with lot of inspiration from my beloved teachers and I completed my secondary education during 2011-12 and higher secondary education in 2013-14. I was scored 360 marks in X standard and 982 marks in higher secondary examinations.
Growth in my life:
I got admission in EVR College for pursuing B.Com. In I & II year degree examinations, I scored an average of 66% marks and now I am trying hard to score more. Then I got admitted to the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Cares Development, Bharathidasan University in Logistic & Supply Chain Management, offered by DDU KAUSHAL and qualified with distinction. I realized that being literate is not just a right, but a gift. I am very grateful to SSA because of the bridge course they provided me to build my ambition.
I belong to Paniya Tribal Community from Odamvayal, and I am very happy to share my testimonial on how I was able continue my studies inspite of various shortcomings. After attaining my puberty I was dropped out. I remained at home for nearly a year and was identified by the SSA team as a dropout. I was not at all willing to continue my education but after motivation and counselling, I joined the RSTC Ambalamoola Centre and was given a bridge course and later mainstreamed to GHSS Ambalamoola (33110400504). I am presently doing my IX std and I am so happy that next year I will appear for my Board Exams. Thanks to the SSA team for giving me a new life to continue my studies as a tribal girl. I wish to come up in life as a successful tribal girl.
I am Manoj 17 years old. I belong to a dysfunctional Paniya family. My father passed away when I was young and I was deserted by my mother who married another man was taken care of by my old aunt who was least aware of education. The SSA team identified me as a dropout and admitted me to the RSTC at Ambalamoola with compulsion. First my life at the RSTC was so bitter but later I got used to it and enjoyed learning. I would like to add to my testimonial that I am partially blind 75% and had regular medical check-up at the centre and I am provided with spectacles but still find it difficult to read and write clearly. After vigorous coaching I was mainstreamed to the GHSS Ambalamoola (33110400504) and now going to appear for my X Std Board Exam. I have applied for scribe and wish to get good marks and further continue my studies and come up as an educated Paniya tribal youngster.
I am Sivanagari residing in Kesthur village. Kesthur is a very remote village situated in a forest area in Thally block of Krishnagiri district. There is no basic amenity available in the village and we need to walk about three kilometers to reach the school in Manjugondapalli. It made me to remain as a Never Enrolled child up to the age of 10. It was at that time, SSA started a RESIDENTIAL SPECIAL TRAINING CENTER (RSTC) in Kesthur, necessitated by the OOSC survey conducted in 2009. It was a great boon to me and the school age children in my village. The BRTEs identified me and admitted in the RSTC, where I was trained to reach the minimum level of learning. After completing my VIII Std., I was mainstreamed in GHSS ANCHETTY. Due to my family background, once again I became a Drop Out. But, the training I got in RSTC made up my mind to continue my studies and to appear X std. Examination as a private student. I secured 237 marks. After that I joined XI Std. in GHSS Anchetty (DISE No.3331170040) and scored 720 marks in XII std. Then I completed my B.A. English Literature from Government Arts College, Hosur in 2017. Now I am working in a private company in Bangalore and earn Rs.8000/- per month. My ambition is to complete B.Ed. and become a good teacher like the ones who changed my life. I am grateful to SSA – KRISHNAGIRI for making my life prosperous and happy.
I am Jalaja kumari working as a Headmistress in GMS.Chittar (UDISE No. 33300700604). Sree Vishnu karthik’s family was residing near our school and were very poor. Even then they send their elder son Sree Vishnu Karthick to “Bharath Primary School” at Pechipparai. He was studying in II Std. Since they were unable to pay the monthly fees in the school, so he stopped going to school and stayed at home. He used to come to the shop nearby our school and one day I asked him why he was not going to school. The boy replied that his parents were unable to pay the fees, so he stopped going to school.
I informed this to the BRTEs who came for the survey. Along with the BRTEs, I went to Sree Vishnu Karthick’s home and talked to his parents. His mother said, “since we were not educated we want our son to be educated in English medium school”.
We told the parents that in GMS Chittar we follow English medium and advised them to enroll their child. They happily admitted their child in our school. Now he is very happy and comes to school regularly. Special coaching is being given through NRSTC centre. Now he studies well. His parents are also very happy because the boy studies well without paying any school fees and van fees. They also enrolled their younger son Vino Karthi in I Std. His parents frequently come to the school and enquire about their children’s achievement.
My name is Soojoal from west Bengal. My father’s name is Gopal and mother name is Kemma. Due to poverty we come to Kanyakumari District in search of work. My parent got work in the Brick kiln at Chenpagaramanputhoor.
My parents asked me to support them in making bricks. When I was working with my parents some teachers came to the Brick Kiln where we were working. They asked me to go to school. But my parents were not willing to send me. Teachers repeatedly came to our hut and talked with my parents. They spoke to my parents about the importance of education and the rules of the government. Finally my parents accepted to send me to school. Teachers took me to GPS. Chenpagaramputhoor (UDise code:33300100201) school and gave uniform. I got food from the school. In the beginning I was not interested in learning but was interested in drawing. So, I used to draw pictures in the note book. My teacher encouraged me to draw pictures and gave crayons. She hanged the pictures in the wire pandal. Now I am interested in the studies also. Those who visit our class appreciate me by seeing my drawings. I use to help my parent on holidays and taught my mother to count the bricks. By seeing the change in me neighbours are also now willing to send their children to school.

Charan Namdev Rathod
The major problem of many students in Palsona cluster in Hingoli district was their seasonal migration with their parents who earned their living through cane cutting. With consistent efforts teachers and cluster heads had been able to hold back a little older children who would take care of themselves, but younger children still accompanied their parents.
Actually, regular attendance is far more important for newcomers, to develop interest in schooling. Also once they lag behind in learning from their fellow students, they don’t feel like coming back.
In 2016 Diwali Charan Namdev Rathod, studying in Class I, went with his parents to adjacent district Parbhani. School teachers were in touch with his father on phone and told him to bring to school once they are back. But the father kept postponing for one reason or the other. Hence, class teacher for Class I Mr. Bansode made home visits, met Charan’s grandmother, and talked with her. He also kept calling his father to convince him to send Charan to school and finally succeeded in getting his student back in class.
A one-to-one approach, communication with parents, and family visits by the teacher helped to bring back Charan to school.

Yogesh, a bright student, had to discontinue his studies as his family migrated to Chandigarh in search of work. After migration their priority was to earn for their basic needs. Due to these circumstances, Yogesh missed on his studies for a very long time, but he never stopped dreaming. As soon as his father got a job, Yogesh requested his parents to admit him to a school but due to non-availability of documents, he could not take admission in the school.
Somehow, they met a Special Training teacher at Govt. school of Manimajra Town and due to the efforts of the teacher, Yogesh got admission in GSSS-MMT on 25th July, 2015.
At the time of admission he was good only in Hindi but did not know Punjabi at all and was weak in English too, which was a big challenge ahead. He was not very keen in co- curricular activities or socializing. But due to his unshakable belief and his ambition in life to rise from the shackles of poverty and become an engineer, and due to his tireless efforts, hard work and the efforts of teachers and school, he was mainstreamed in class 7th and is doing very well academically.
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan is doing a wonderful job by creating opportunities for students like Yogesh to dream and also to fulfill their dreams.

उक्त पंक्तियाँ चरितार्थ की गयी हैं श्री हुकुम सिंह उनियाल प्र0अ0/वार्डन आवासीय हास्टल 55 राजपुर रोड देहरादून के द्वारा। सर्व शिक्षा अभियान/ शिक्षा का अधिकार कार्यक्रम के अन्तर्गत विशेष बच्चे जो विद्यालयी शिक्षा से वंचित हैं को शिक्षा की मुख्यधारा से जोड़ने के लिए देहरादून जनपद में 55 राजपुर रोड में एक आवासीय छात्रावास संचालित है. इस छात्रावास में लगभग 50 से अधिक बच्चे जो विभिन्न कारणों से शाला त्यागी थे को विशेष प्रशिक्षण के माध्यम से मुख्यधारा में जोड़ने का पवित्र कार्य किया है प्र0अ0/वार्डन श्री उनियाल एवं उनके सहयोगी स्टाफ ने। इन्हीं बच्चों में से एक है चांदनी।
जैसा कहते हैं ‘‘होनहार बीरवान के होत चीकने पात’’ यह बच्ची जन्म से एक हाथ एवं एक पांव से दिव्यांग है परन्तु आज हौसलों एवं उम्मीदों के साथ जीवनपथ पर आगे अग्रसर है। चांदनी मूल रूप से बिहार राज्य की रहने वाली है जो पढ़ाई लिखायी से कोसों दूर थी। इनका पूरा परिवार देहरादून के घण्टाघर के आस पास भिक्षा वृत्ति करते थे। प्र0अ0 द्वारा इस बच्ची के माता पिता से इसको आवासीय हास्टल में पढ़ाई लिखायी हेतु भेजने के लिए आग्रह किया गया परन्तु माता पिता इसके लिए तैयार नहीं थे। प्र0अ0 द्वारा सतत एवं बार.बार परामर्श कर एवं यह चुनौती लेते हए कहा कि इस बालिका को 1 माह तक हमारे पास भेज दो यदि आपको इसमें काई परिवर्तन नहीं दिखा तो इसे वापस बुला लेना। इस शर्त पर अन्ततः सफलता हासिल करते हए बच्ची के माता पिता विशेष प्रशिक्षण हेतु भेजने के लिए राजी हो गये और दोनों हुकुम के हुकुम को टाल न सके और चांदनी को हुकुम के हवाले कर दिया। अब हुकुम एवं उनके सहयोगियों के पास एक चुनौती थी कि चांदनी का आवासीय हास्टल में ठहराव एवं उसे प्रारम्भिक ज्ञान देना। प्रधानाध्यापक एवं विद्यालयी की शिक्षिका संगीता तोमर द्वारा जिस परिश्रम एवं प्रेरणा के साथ चांदनी के साथ कार्य किया उसी का परिणाम था कि बच्ची अब घर वापस जाने के लिए तैयार नहीं थी। एक माह के पश्चात माता पिता चांदनी को लेने हास्टल आ पहुंचे लेकिन चांदनी ने वापस लौटेने के लिए मना कर दिया। 03 महीने बाद पुनः माता पिता फिर से यह कहते हुए कि इसके दादा की मृत्यु हो गयी है, अब तो इसे छोड़ दो, परन्तु चांदनी ने वापस जाने से साफ इंकार कर दिया और कहा कि उसे पढ़ाई करनी है और कुछ नहीं। आज चांदनी कक्षा 7 में पढ़ रहीं है और धारा प्रवाह हिन्दी एवं अंग्रेजी बोलती एवं पढ़ती है। चांदनी भविष्य में शिक्षक बनना चाहती है।
पूर्व में 11 जनवरी 2017 को शिक्षा मंत्रालय के सचिव श्री अनिल स्वरूप द्वारा इस छात्रावास में अपने निरीक्षण के दौरान जब इस बच्ची से बातचीत की और पढ़ाई लिखाई से सम्बन्धित जानकारी प्राप्त की तो वो बच्चों की प्रगति से इतने प्रसन्न हुए कि चांदनी और सभी बच्चे ‘‘यूं ही मेहनत से पढ़ो और आगे बढ़ो। प्रधानाध्याक और शिक्षकों द्वारा किया जा रहा यह प्रयास उल्लेखनीय एवं सराहनीय है। इसलिए कहा गया है कि- Difficult Roads often leads to Beautiful Destinations.

In spite of having a burning desire to learn, due to lack of confidence in the regional language (Tamil) and due to non-availability of certificates he had to bury his hopes of studying further.
