Studying in Fear

Agara Village, Bhatiagarh, Madhya Pradesh | Aartibai Valmiki

The gaping cracks in this school building have filled the hearts of teachers, students and their parents. But in the absence of any other school in the vicinity, children continue coming here, putting their lives at risk to get an education. It is alleged that corruption while building the structure, has left it in this dilapidated state in just seven years.

What is really frustrating people is the lack of any platforms to put their concerns forward. As Bakht Singh, one of the parents says, there has been no village council meeting in the past five years! By law these are supposed to happen at least thrice a year-- on 15th August (Independence Day); 2nd October (Gandhi Jayanti) and 26th January (Republic Day). It's time to now escalate this issue and get the students in Agara a proper school.

Call to Action: Please call the District Collector, Mr Nemah on +919993553406 and ask him to ensure that this building is fixed.
