The Central Secretariat meeting of Popular Front of India presided over by Chairman E. Abubacker has appealed generous contributions from the public for the accomplishment of various activities scheduled for the year 2018 as part of the nation-wide educational project called School Chalo.
This project has been successfully implemented by the organisation since last one decade in different states. As per statistical data, nearly 60% of pupils in India don’t complete primary education, whereas 90% of them drop out at different stages of school education. A large number of children from villages and urban slums, not all get enrolled in school. Popular Front holds the two months long School Chalo campaign prior to school opening time every year with activities such as household literacy and education survey, motivating children and parents to enroll in school, identifying dropouts and helping in re-admission etc. As usual, along with awareness programmes, school kits containing study material will be distributed to poor students in this year also. This campaign will be during Jan-Feb in East and North-East states and during April-May in other states. As follow-up activities throughout the year, some selected most backward villages will be sponsored as Sarva Shiksha Gram (SSG) and Remedial Tuition Centres will be opened there. Popular Front of India has created a special fund called EDUCARE FUND for this project and requests generous contributions from the public for this humanitarian cause.
