ECDF CHILDREN AND COMMUNITY WELFARE INITIATIVE ‘NAbA UDAY’ SISHU SIKSHA VIKASH ABHIYAN (A Pilot Project)
ECDF has recently adopted a village at Khetri in Sonapur District by the name Habigoan, in the interiors of Assam. The village has about 100 households in small clusters and is a mix of Bodo and Rabha Community along with a few Adivasi and Assamese families. The people of the village are mostly farmers and daily wage labourers. The school of the children has been non-functional since the onset for the pandemic, as the people do not have an access to devices for online classes. The village children have been mostly ideal since last two years and have not been engaged in a meaningful way.
ECDF team identified this village through a local individual and his wife, who are caretakers of a farm in the area. ECDF members took a call to help these children to get free education through support both on online and offline mode, and also to help the locals to be self sufficient and sustainable in the long run.
On 12th Sept 2021 (Sunday), ECDF Founder Chairperson Dr. Vasavvi Acharjya, along with two other Guwahati Chapter members Sukalpa Das and Z. Hussain, visited the villagers and discussed the plan of action and the way forward to support these children. They also distributed book kit and stationary to children between the age group 3-7 years, to encourage them.
Big thank you to all members and well wishers of ECDF for their support and faith in the organisation
