In order to sensitize children right from the start Jan Chetna Sansthan conducts student mobilization with the intention to sentient students about Tribal Self Rule and Panchayati Raj Extension for Schedule Areas (PESA). They are also motivated to go to the children activity centers (libraries) in their respective villages. They are told about the history of tribals as to how tribal leadership emerged and fought for their rights.

Village Activity Center:

The idea behind these centers (libraries) is to link the child with books right from their childhood. This will enable them to know about new things and enhance their knowledge. It will also make the child inquisitive about the surroundings and the development therein. As of now the libraries are successfully functioning in 15 villages. These libraries are a great help to the dropout children as it enables them to read and write even if they have discontinued their study. Lately we have provided every library with games material so that children have greater reason to go to the library. We now call it as Village Activity Center.

Bal Mela:

In Bal mela children play different games and eat lots of sweets. They are given games material and playing items. Quizzes are organized for children and they participated very actively. Children were told stories about freedom fighters that how they fought for our country and sacrificed their lives.

Curriculum Building Workshop:

It was found that the present curriculum of primary school does not deal with tribal culture and their history. Children are unaware about their rich cultural heritage. This is vital when we talk about Tribal Self Rule and PESA Act. One-day curriculum building workshop was held in Astha, Udaipur. Various academicians, professors, and scholars specializing in tribal culture from Tribal Research Institute and University were present apart from the tribal teachers and voluntary organizations’ members. This workshop was a step towards developing a curriculum for the tribal children highlighting tribal history, their culture, tradition & customs and stories of tribal heroes. Everyone gave his or her valuable inputs that were seriously considered. It was decided in this meeting that the curriculum developed by Bodh Sansthan, Eklavya and Dusra Dashak will be studied and they will meet again in coming year with their feedbacks. Once the curriculum is developed it will be implemented in schools with the help of SSA and other non-formal educational initiative.
