About the Program
In the space of 1 year, the Committee saw that the COVID-19 pandemic has almost transformed the world we live in, the unfolding crisis has affected many lives and still continues to do so. The most affected of us all are the weaker and poorer sections of the society.
In the lockdown they suffered a lot, their means of livelihood were gone, their dreams and aspirations were somewhat crushed by the hammer of this cataclysm. However, through our initiatives, we saw that there is so much we can do, by our channelized and combined efforts.
Under the Committees Flagship Initiative ‘Mil KarKarein RTE koSarthak’ our Committee has been organising a Competition since 2018 to make the benefits under the Right to Education Act [“RTEAct”] accessible to the target group consisting of weaker and disadvantaged sections of the society. The Competition aims to bolster the impact of the beneficiary provision of Section 12(1)(c) of the RTE Act which provides for the reservation of 25% seats in private schools to actualize the idea of universal education.
The 1st and 2nd editions of the competition were a huge success and resulted in the admission of around 265 students. We organized the 3rd edition of this Competition in July 2020. As a result, the Committee has submitted more than 100 admission forms for admission in private schools.
Role of the Volunteer & Duration
This time, however, due to the restrictions posed by the COVID-19, organising the competition will not be a viable option. But to continue our legacy and to help the underprivileged children to avail their right to free education the Committee IS delighted to announce an ‘Online Certificate Volunteer Program’ under our ‘Mil KarKarein RTE koSarthak’ initiative, which is open to not just law students, but any person from any field, from all walks of life, and from all across the country with a common motivation to assist the committee in its mission.
The role of volunteers shall entail facilitating the admission process by collecting documents and filling the RTE application form of the children of their respective states.
The program shall extend to a period of 2 months, during which the volunteers are requested to provide their weekly report of the admission they have facilitated. This program will help you gain some experience in social service, also it’s a great opportunity for those who want to serve society but do not have a platform to do so. Under the program, the Certificate of Volunteership will be provided as a souvenir of your social work.
The number of seats for this program is limited and the selections are also subjected to a screening process, the interested person can give their consent for volunteers by filing the provided Google Form, here.
