Ahmednagar (Maharashtra), December 2020: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) in association with its implementing partner Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (Ahmednagar) relaunched Village Education Project in 30 villages of Ahmednagar and Beed districts of Maharashtra. This project aims at strengthening the learning capacity of primary school students and improving the quality of education thus leading to reduction in the drop outs in the schools; especially among the rural poor kids in these two districts. This project is being implemented in collaboration with Don Bosco Mission (Bonn) and funded by Kindermissionswerk (Aachen, Germany).

Fr. Rolvin D’Mello, the Executive Director of DBDS visited these classes and interacted with teachers and students. He also met parents during his visit. During his interaction he said, “learning during early years is very important for children and teachers play a crucial role in this process. He emphasised that scientific thinking, logic and mathematical skills are to be taken seriously and should be mandatorily taught to children.”

Fr. George D’Abreo the Director of Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra said “It is important that teachers follow child centric methods of teaching in a conducive environment. Apart from regular teaching instructions a child must be involved in creative and sports activities to enhance the personality of children.”

Parents present on the occasion expressed their gratefulness towards Don Bosco for this project; which has brought hope of secured future of their children.
