6. Main challenges to implementation

 Mentality of Community members -On the field we face the problem of traditional thinking of
community member and they think the girls are needed inside the house or in the Pre School
instead to evolve them in the useless works like social welfare.
 Lack of Trust-On the field when SNBS team introduce our self they are not believe us because
many of them are victim of forgery by commission agent to solve their problem and forgery
scheme like Network marketing company or also think these people are from government
department for checking about electricity, child labour and loan recovery agents.
 Non Supporting behavior of Stakeholders- In the field Our CSW faced non-cooperation of
community or government stakeholders like Pradhan, School headmaster, VDO or Block level.
Our CSW convinced them or informed about the project and they are ready to cooperate with
 Poverty- Poverty is one of the obstacle spread over the community and the family members are
question of child education specially.

8. Human Interest Story

During the second quarter of the year 2018-19 there are not so many success story to describe
but there are two story which are Need a special concern or the description also.

In our first story of BMG Doraitha, there are two extra – ordinary girls name PRIYANKA and
MONIKA of age 15 or 16 respectively ; studied in 11th class of school RAJKIYA KANYA INTER
COLLEGE AGRA passed in the High school with 76 &78 % respectively and members of BAL
PANCHAYAT group. In present, these girls are convincing the family of child labours and
dropout and 45 child got admission on his own efforts. The story starts in previous quarter
when we conducted the School Chalo Abhiyan Awareness Rally for the child labours and drop
outs in the month of July. They were presented in the rally and understand the power and
effect of education to demolish the social evil. Finally they are stand up for the child labours
and drop outs to provide the education at any cost. They started to visit all house hold or
community members to convince them after their school and tuition and there are some
interested community members who are willing to enroll their child in school but there are
some obstacle. In the first fifteen days no result achieved and some members comments on
useless comments and started the PRAGATI SNBS FREE EDUCATION CENTER with the members
of BAL PANCHAYAT and their family children’s. Efforts of the PRIYANKA and MONIKA come in
focus when their students are passed with good marks in the school and community members
started to appreciate them. After this achievement they found a little crowd on the center and
faced the problem of small space. They met with the principal for the purpose of space for
PRAGATI SNBS FREE EDUCATION CENTER in School. The principal refuse to give the permission
for PRAGATI SNBS FREE EDUCATION CENTER in the premises with a comment BACHCHE SHAM
KO AKAR GANDAGI FAILAYENGE. They are not worried about this failure and they talked us to
provide such space and write the application to SNBS for the subject. In which application they
guaranteed to clean the space after the classes.
On behalf of the application Our Director talked to the principle to provide such facility
in the school for welfare of society. The principle are convinced and permitted to give the space
for the educational purpose in the school premises. Finally they got her space for the PRAGATI
SNBS FREE EDUCATION CENTER. In present, they successfully manage the classes and the
strength in the classes is above fifty within one and half month.

In Our second story of Lakhanpur this story belongs to an intelligent child involve in the child
labour (embroidery) and whose name is SATYAM. Satyam is belongs to the parental village
Govardhan Mathura. His family consists of two brothers and one sister. His sister married in the
young age of 16 by Community marriage function. His mother comes with him to her parental
house and settled here in Lakhanpur Agra. When his mother takes him to Lakhanpur he is only
6month old. His father is dead in his 7th year and mother died 6 month later in the depression
of husband’s death and the responsibility of their children’s. His responsibility comes on his
Aunt and they nurture him up to six month. Later his Grandparents (NANA) take him to
Lakhanpur where he has 6 uncles and 6 aunties who engaged in the construction work and auto
driver. In the survey this child are identified and no single member of his family want he involve
in the studied except his grandparents (nana). Our CSW MALA SAXENA convinced them and
told them about the legal provision of Studied and the punishment on engaging and forced to
engage in child labour. After 4 to 5 visit of CSW result comes very positively but there is new
problem in admission for the name of parents. Again our CSW convinced the Principal of
primary school and successfully SATYAM enrolled in the School. His studied is in the guidance of
Yuva Mandal member RAVINA & POOJA. Now he has the bigger dream of being a POLICE
