EDUCATION | Human Resource Development

Education is not only a movement from darkness to light but also a weapon to fight poverty; for creating a socially responsible, analytically thinking, self reliant and rights bearing citizens who would take charge of society and its development.This philosophical commitment has been the basic motivational force to identify education as the core activity of Badlao Foundation. Though the ‘Right to education’ became the fundamental right after the 86th amendment of the Constitution of India in 2002 the grassroots realities in Jharkhand still remains to be dismal. Most marginalized communities of the state, tribal and Dalit continue to be at the bottom of the education ladder. It is an irony that even today the practice of untouchability in some schools is prevalent, which is a big obstacle and a great shame for us.

Soon after its inception, the foundation conducted a comprehensive survey of the social, cultural, educational and rituals aspects of the community. It was found that the illiteracy and lack of awareness were the main problems of the community. The survey revealed that the women, who comprised half the population of the community, were neglected and did not have a share in decision-making process at any level in the society. The people, by and large, were not aware about the evils of alcoholism. A major portion of their income was spent on liquor. It was also revealed that the community paid very little attention to children’s education, more particularly to the female education.

The task of empowering women in Jharkhand has been a victim of governance deficit. The governments and elected representatives have never taken the task of reaching out literacy to the lower level seriously notwithstanding the fact that the urge for economic emancipation and empowerment of the poor tribal have been at the root of demand for creation of separate state for tribals.
