Sishu Khusi Project

Khusi Shishu, or happy childhood, is the right words for resuming JRP’s objectives and hopes. In fact, JRP is strengthening its commitment for children’s rights protection. The organisation has started an innovative project addressing children from 5 to 10 years old living in the slums of Bhubaneswar with following objectives. 

  • To obber a cozy, safe and positive environment where children could learn, express their creativity and have a serene personal growth despite the difficult economic conditions that their families are facing daily.
  • To prevent child labour
  • To offer the possibility to youth from upper and middle class to enter in contact with the poorest in order to reflect about the inequalities and the human rights violations.

 Overview :

Bhubaneswar slums are mainly populated by tribal families recently emigrated from other districts of Odisha. The inhabitants are usually daily workers and, males and females, are engaged in working activities for the entire day so  they don’t have time for looking after their children. The hygienic conditions in the slum are very precarious and unsafe. Usually they have access to purified water but not to latrines and waste collection. Because of the difficult access to governmental schools, linguistic problems and lack of pressure by the parents during the day the children are left free of playing in the unhygienic places for which the dropout rate is very high.  

Activities

KHUSI SHISHU consists of two complementary activities:

In the morning during the school time the activities is addressed to the dropouts living in Nilapadia and Adarsh slum. In fact, the JRP’s staff organize informal lessons in a room inside the NGO office. Our staff will motivate the children’s families of the importance of attending school. The school is being decorated with handcraft done with recycled materials for highlighting the JRP’s commitment to environmental protection and for creating an atmosphere that could attract the kids . These lessons will be taught by foreign and local volunteers along with JRP’s staff.

The goal is to make kids gain self confidence and help them through tutoring to improve their educational level and to integrate them in governmental schools (or at least give them the skills that are required for finding a sustainable job). The subjects will be Oriya, English, Mathematics, Computer and Art workshops. 

In the afternoon entertainment activities will be held in the slums so the children regularly attending the school and the dropouts will be involved in games, theatrical dance performance, songs competitions and informal amusing tutoring.
