“If we want to achieve our goal, then let us empower ourselves with the weapon of knowledge and let us shield ourselves with unity and togetherness.”
“I am not a lot voice , I am many.”
– Malala Yousafzai.( Child education activist)
” I have had over 50 death threats but I will not stop saving child rights.”
– Kirti Bharthi .( child rights avtivist)
I dream of a world which is free of child labour , a world in which every child goes to school. A world in which every child gets his rights.”
“Child labour perpetuates poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, population growth and other social problems.”
– Kailash Satyarthi ( child rights and education activist)
These are some of the very many child rights activist that work towards making this world a better place to live in for the children. Have we ever wondered about those millions of children who are denied their rights. ” There is no greater violence than denying the dreams of our children.” The world has some of the best representatives who have stood by and stood strong for the basic rights of the children. ‘We adults and the policies of the governance are responsible for the poverty and unemployment but not the kids.’
Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi won the Nobel Peace prize in the year 2014. The U.N honoured them with the prize because they fought for the rights of those people who are supposedly the future of our country. Did they do all this just to be felicitated or to be honoured or to be recognized? I do not think so. They did this because they genuinely wanted to make the world a better place.
There are not many such brave people who have overcome all the fears. Malala Yousafzai took the bullet on her forehead dauntlessly beacause to her the fight for the right to education of the girls living in Pakistan was more important than her life itself.
We at WeHelpThePoor wish to encourage and support such valiant people. We believe that one person can stir an emotion but one person needs help to make this emotion reach out to the other people. Standing for something that is right, difficult to accomplish is an ambitious and onerous task. They need support , they need help. A task when shared becomes easier to perform.
The children of our country need to be unchained from the clutches of slavery, trafficking, child marriages, illiteracy etc. Education is the key solution to all the social problems. Education gives the person the ability to make choices and decisions. Education is that fine line that separates the good from the bad. Education gives you power and confidence. Education sculpts you and through education you can sculpt the world. Education turns your dreams into reality. Education gives you a happy life.
There are thousands of children who wish to go to school and out of these many of them are girls who want the freedom to be educated. The rural parts of India in this generation too deny the right to education to girls. Why should the girls be denied of this amenity? Just because they are supposed to look after the domestic chores so that they can look after their husbands satisfactorily.
Marriage can wait but education cannot. Education is much crucial when compared to marriage. It is believed that an educated girl is egotistical. Education is not about the scientific, logical or analytical knowledge. Education also refers to moral knowledge. It teaches discipline and moral values.
What makes education more essential is that it teaches the person the difference between what is right and what is wrong. Should the girls of our society be denied to freedom of making choices. If yes, then why? We live in the 21st century where the tussels for gender equality are notable. The rural areas where the practices of patriarchy are still eminent need to change. They need to realize that education of not just the girl child but of all the children is very important.
We at WeHelpThePoor intent to promote education in every nook and corner of India. We aim to hold hands with the renowned social activists because we believe in working as a team with as much as support as possible. To achieve great things one needs to have a strong will power and a strong team who can stand by each other during bittersweet times.
