FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 WHEELS GLOBAL FOUNDATION (WGF) AND PRATHAM PARTNER

TO PROMOTE GIRLS EDUCATION IN INDIA

Pratham’s Second Chance Program Assists Female School Dropouts through the Provision of Digital Learning

WASHINGTON, DC — October 17, 2016, WHEELS Global Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is a pioneer in applying technology to uplift rural communities, and Pratham, one of India’s largest educational nonprofits, which provides quality education to underprivileged children, announced a partnership to promote girls' education in underserved communities in five states in India.

An alarming 80% of girls in India leave school before completing eighth grade, due to persisting socioeconomic and cultural norms.  The WGF grant will help enhance Pratham’s Second Chance program, which assists female school dropouts over the age of 14 in completing their secondary school education and earning their 10th Standard diploma, through the provision of digital learning resources.

Presently, Pratham operates 33 centers connected to 200 learning sites in nine Indian states: Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan and Telangana, aimed at supporting female dropouts. The partnership will introduce digital learning solutions in five of these states, reaching 1,700 students.  Laptops and tablets with pre-loaded Pratham content in the areas of Science, Math and English as well as “Spoken Tutorials,” a digital educational tool which will be made accessible to students at Pratham learning sites, which typically caters to 25-30 students, and loaned to groups of students so they can access class lessons on their own time and at their own pace, while also becoming familiar with digital technology in general.

“We are honored to have the support of the WHEELS Global Foundation. By augmenting the girls’ education program with access to interactive and engaging digital content, we hope to provide them with a more robust learning experience and improve outcomes,” said Head of Pratham’s Second Chance program Renu Seth, who is in the US to promote girls’ education. Seth added that the technology will also help develop Pratham’s infrastructure: “We spend an inordinate amount of time and resources building capacity. There is a high demand for teachers in rural areas who can teach secondary school content but attrition is also high. Having the technology in place to support teaching training is an added benefit and will greatly improve Pratham’s ability to support these young women.”

The Second Chance program offers females an alternative education model that engages them in a safe, supportive environment and helps them obtain their diploma, improving their prospects for higher education and employment. Since its inception in 2011, the program has impacted the lives of more than 18,000 girls and women, with pass percentages for enrollees reaching 88% in the 2015-16 school years. "We are thrilled to partner with Pratham on their Second Chance initiative to assist the young dropout girls,” says Hiten Ghosh, President of WGF. “Using digital teaching tools allows the young adults to learn at their own pace, which is important,” he adds.

Toilets built in Karunda - a hamlet that is part of Agiya

"Prashanbaa, a widow from Agiya village of Gujarat, like other women in her village was compelled to defecate in the open daily, as she did not have a toilet at home. Raising her voice against the traditional veil system, she says "elders are not feeling shame, while the women of the village defecates in the open". But now things have changed and she thanked Habitat for Humanity - India and Wheels Global Foundation for the toilet unit. Today she is “Happy”. She has a toilet in her home. Her safety and privacy are secured."

Dr Kothari's visit to WHEELS' sites in the villages of Gujrat

Dr. Ajay Kothari (President ASEI and WHEELS collaborator) visited villages of North Gujarat to see the work done by WHEELS and its healthcare partner SEVAK. Below is the feedback and pictures he shared from his visit.

"I visited 2 villages in North Gujarat yesterday. I am very pleased to see the work done by WHEELS and Sevak. People are very happy with what you all have done. We need to continue along the same lines. Prakash (in charge of North Guj) from Gandhinagar drove over from my location, It was about 100 kms from where I was. North Gujarat is comparatively more backward and in need of such things more. The Adiwasi people here are the ones benefiting. People were very happy to meet me. About 20-30 people came over impromptu and I visited many homes to see the toilets (in Mankan Champa) and also the parents of the blind 10 year old that Thakorebhai and SEVAK have helped them.

I got a letter from the Sarpanch on their letterhead for additional toilets to take to the Banas Kantha District Collector which I am trying to do now if he is available over next two days that I am here. The cost of toilet is 18K Rs of which Gov funds 12K. As you all know ! Agiya, village in Gujrat where WHEELS built some toilets for villagers, similar quality toilets are needed in Mankan Champa also and other places too."

WHEELS and our collaborator team, deeply appreciate Dr. Kothari's personal interest and willing to lead in WHEELS social project in few villages of North Gujarat—starting with the village Disha. WHEELS with the collaboration of SEVAK have already done similar project in the villages one per district of Gujarat for a total of 33.

Visually Impaired Students Learning on their Own

WHEELS team is happy to share with you that our collaborator have implemented a platform “SunKids” for Visually impaired at Poona School for Blind at Koregaon park. Where in Blind students can learn and sharpen their knowledge of Brail on their own without the help of Brail teacher. They need a sighted person to operate the system.

Initial response has been extremely encouraging, specially the smile on the faces of those young kids when they were using the platform. It is worth a lot.

Present technology which we observed in Blind center operated by United Ways in Atlanta also currently uses Tennis balls to teach Brail as can be seen in the picture. When it was demonstrated to the Brail teacher in Atlanta she was also very excited about it. So we feel very proud to bring new technology to fore to improve the quality of life of Special children.

HRD Minister's surprise visit to IIT Gandhinagar Student Mess

Great work by IIT Gandhinagar Director Dr. Sudhir Jain in managing IIT Gandhinagar so well and setting an example for other institutions. IIT Gandhinagar is also a WHEELS Collaborator in Social projects in Education field.

 1.jpg    2.jpg

In the words of Mr. Sudhir Jain: Another first for the Institute, the Minister dropping in for food in the student mess! Not sure if any IIT has ever had the Minister (and ex-officio Chairperson of the IIT Council) come in for a meal unannounced!

Fortunately, the hygiene, the food preparation, the atmosphere in our mess has always been very decent and there were no awkward moments... the students had a nice time with her ...chatting and getting their pics taken...

When I was told that the Minister has gone to the mess, naturally I along with a few faculty and Director of IIT Kharagpur Prof Partha Chakrabarti too joined her.

Hope to have many more important persons have their meals in the student mess in the years ahead..... we must not just retain the quality of our dining halls but with time further enhance the dining experience for every one.

SEVAK doing health care work in the Village of Gujarat

These pictures are from Tuvad Village, Patan District of Gujarat, showing how SEVAK Priank is using the Netbook in recording data on blood pressure and sugar of patients . When PM Modi talks about Digital India - it is going to be these kind of small "one-on-one" uses of netbooks, computers, laptops, smartphones when combined hundreds of millions of times, will have a significant impact on the country's progress doing the screening and entering the data.

This collaborative effort between Wheels Global Foundation, SEVAK and IIT Bombay based team is a prime example of how good collaboration at grassroots level can work effectively.  Many Sevaks never used a computer and Thanks to WHEELS  collaborator group from IIT-Mumbai  translated the Health monitoring Instruction  into Gujarati , sent an instructor to Vedodara University to train the SEVAKs on use of the Software program.

A new, ‘circular’ perspective on water management

Three billion people will join the global consumer class over the next two decades, accelerating the degradation of natural resources and escalating competition for them. Nowhere is this growing imbalance playing out more acutely than the water sector. Already, scarcity is so pronounced that we cannot reach many of our desired economic, social, and environmental goals. If we continue business as usual, global demand for water will exceed viable resources by 40 percent by 2030.

If we consider water to be a product—something that is processed, enriched, and delivered—we must follow the same strict design rules applied to any other product in a circular economy. Innovators, responsible operators, and committed system developers are spearheading the creation of new technological solutions, pilot cases, and initiatives to improve water management.
