Indian Innovators Foundation found in a survey in association with a surveyor, that About 68% rural women cannot afford sanitary napkins available in market and 82% rural women cannot avail sanitary napkin to use in menstruation time. The study, carried out by global information and measurement company AC Nielsen, and it is also reviewed and endorsed by us in a survey done in some villages in district Gwalior(MP) and Jaipur (Rajasthan), throws light on the dismal state of feminine hygiene. According to gynecologists, use of alternative sanitary care measures such as unsterilized cloths, sand and ash make women, susceptible to infections and diseases. We also found in survey that awareness on basic health and feminine hygiene is very low, with 75% rural women lacking adequate knowledge on menstrual hygiene and care. On the issue of affordability of quality sanitary care, survey found that 81% rural women use unsterilized cloths since they are cheaper and 68% said they cannot afford to buy sanitary napkins. Adolescent girls in in these villages are also unable to attend upto 50 days of schooling in a year due to inadequate menstrual care. Gynecologist believe that sanitary napkins can act as preventive measure against reproductive tract infection, it can also act as precautionary measure to reduce the risk of cervical cancer. Over 85% girls used old tattered clothes during menstruation. We were Shaken to the core on hearing that some of rural girls were using things like a 'pouch filled with ash' and 'bundle of dried grass' instead of sanitary napkins.
We provides scholarship and plans to give practical knowledge to students because education in The India is often criticized for being based on rote learning rather than problem solving. Business-week criticizes The Indian curriculum, saying it revolves around rote learning and express The India suggests that students are focused on cramming. At the lower secondary level (till std. 10), enrollment rate is 52%, while at the senior secondary level (std. 11 and 12), it is 28%. While the enrollment rate in pre-school is merely 18%, there is a 48% drop-out rate in elementary education.(source : Fortress Team Research). The India, however, has not accorded sufficiently high priority to the education of the poor and around 33 million of its 120 million 6-to-10-years-olds are not in school. These youngsters are not offered the opportunity to develop the skills needed for upward mobility. Along with the neglect of primary education goes that of gender discrimination, which condemns a much greater proportion of girls and women to illiteracy and to ill-health. Reducing the gender inequality among the poor requires a determined effort to focus on improved health care for women, maternal health care in particular, combined with basic education.(source :World Bank).
We are also planning to focuses on delivering low cost digital learning (Innovators Classroom) content primarily in government and rural area schools, given its large scale presence where 80 percent of schools in The India are public schools and they manifest problems of teacher attendance, ability and motivation that can be partially addressed through technology aided learning. This provides for an economical solution to the teacher-shortage challenge that leverages the best teaching practices of the urban qualified teachers, who develop content for innovators classroom, to be implemented in rural schools. Teachers integrate the digital content into their blackboard teaching and lesson plans. It makes learning engaging for students, helps with recapitulations of key highlights, and is also used as bridge course material for drop outs. Students themselves use this content for self-learning in the absence of a teacher.
Education should be accessible to all if democracy is to succeed. Many communities and groups like disadvantaged castes have been historically excluded from education. Devolution of powers is extremely important to make education accessible to children. Administration at the grass roots should be encouraged. Panchayats should have the power to decide whether a piece of land should be allocated to a power plant, hospital or elementary school. We are also working in this field.
