Jharkhand – The land of forests
A brief about Jharkhand • Jharkhand means land of forest, mountains and river. • Jharkhand alone accounts for 40% of resources in India. Like coal, manganese, bauxite, iron, mica etc. • Jharkhand is famous for tribal community and Ayurveda. • Since Independence Jharkhand is being exploited by Government and Industries for minerals. • Jharkhand is also considered as the poorest state of India.
What do we mean by Saving the Girl Child ? • It is high time in Jharkhand now. • Beside having a serene beauty of nature. • Harsh reality is that Jharkhand is No.1 for girls early marriages in India. • Nearly 30,000 girls and women are trafficked to cities for prostitution. • Here our aim is to save the girl child from early marriages and Girl trafficking.
What is the situation of girls ? • In Village Banta/Hazam there are Govt. Schools where girls get free education upto 10th class. • After 10th education is not free in that region. • So almost 80% of girls are being married at the age of 15 or 16. • The community people are poor, so they cannot afford the cost of Intermediate or Graduation for their children. • So the girls are getting married under the societal and peer pressure.
What has Antral/ done so far ? • In that region so far Antral/ with the community support has started a community school and has been working with it since 2013. • We have employed two girls as teachers in that school. Now they are earning a bit for themselves and educating themselves. • We are also running a creative learning space for the children of the community in the evening. • But the need of the hour is more, in order to save the girls from early marriages.
How would we do this ? • We have planned to employ the 10th passed out girls by self – directed Agarbatti making unit. • By opening a Agarbatti making unit we would be saving at 12 to 16 girls from early marriages. • This would be a breakthrough and within some years we would be able to multiply the effect. • It is said that if you ever wonder to make a difference then just touch one life. • Here we would be impacting 12 to 16 lives at a time and many more in the near future.
Why an Agarbatti unit ? • It would be an low budget cost-effective model for the 10th passed out girls. • The most important raw material used in making agarbatti is bamboo. And in Jharkhand bamboo is very easy accessible. • The tribal community is supporting us by giving us the space to work and the bamboo. • We would also be getting support from some people for marketing the raw agarbatti or packed agarbatti.
How are we going to establish the Agarbatti unit ? • We have planned to purchase three machineries from a Innovator of Ahmedabad,Gujarat Mr. Paresh .K. Panchal. • He innovated three machines for making the production easier and highly productive. • The machines are manually operated and safe to work with. • Mr. Paresh has specially designed these machines for tribal community.

How can you contribute towards the process of Social change. • It is not their need and we should help them, rather it is absolutely our need to serve them. • It’s an opportunity that would make you feel happy at the core of your heart. • It is not our cause but it is everyone’s cause and we all have some responsibilities to fulfill. • You can fund some amount of money as much as you can, • You can also volunteer for raising funds and be the part of this social change. • You can also welcome to Jharkhand for any workshops you are interested to conduct for children.
