Going through Gharibabad Streets, you may discover kids wandering around in the streets. These kids stay denied of the fundamental necessities of life, for example, medicinal services and education. Absence of these necessities makes them vulnerable to the challenges of life coming ahead and this predicts their future miserable.
Street to School-STS is a pioneer program of Open for Everyone (O4E) Welfare Organization. Besides focusing on pre schooling curriculum, STS also indulge these children in sports and recreational activities to promote greater health awareness.
In such harsh conditions, the young leader ‘Mr. Hassan Ghoghari’ has devoted himself on a mission to bring these kids from street to school.
According to Mr. Ghoghari, these kids are full of potential.
There has been an in-depth research and crucial ground work carried out by STS team before commencing school in this area. They went out to spread importance and awareness of education within community; Not only to parents but to small vendors and shopkeepers where these children were hired on a daily wages. In start, STS team convinced parents to send children for just 3 hours in the morning. And now after 4 years it has become a school of 150 children, a mid-size school in a small community of Liaquatabad.
When Street To School got a chance to engage NVP Volunteers as Exam Invigilator to ensure transparency and improve conduct of exam.
NVP reached out to the community at Gharibabad on the request of Street To School (STS), to discuss mutual collaboration during exams. STS used to conduct exams upon completion of syllabus but this time they were in search to have their exams in more transparent manner. We found it useful to connect through Volunteers so as to ascertain an independent result.
What the Volunteers had to do:
Volunteers were assigned to serve as Exam Invigilators. It was not that they were merely the invigilators during exams but there were many other things offered by them.
Role of Volunteers:
SERVING AS INVIGILATOR
The initial phase of the project was to invigilate exams in an unbiased manner. Volunteers were assigned to monitor the conduct of papers. Students were encouraged to give their best.
Term exam were scheduled for one-week during 11-16 November consecutively and Volunteers along with STS team executed it smoothly.
Such strict decorum puts a barrier on cheating culture that is prevailing in our education system.
ASSISTING IN MARKING PAPERS
The day and night struggle of students, teachers and parents ought to be fairly evaluated to pay off their hard work.
Assigned Volunteers checked, rechecked and verified the marking criteria to eliminate the chances of any error in this assignment, bearing sensitivity.
The assignment finally concluded with feed backs and suggestions as quoted by volunteers based on their keen observation.
Street to School management had applauded efforts put in by each individual Volunteer in taking this project on height of success.
