Every year on November 20th, to commemorate the establishment of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), UNICEF observes World Children’s Day and promotes, raises awareness, and money for the most serious challenges confronting children so that every child can reach their full potential.

Both believe that free and compulsory elementary education is a fundamental entitlement of all children and is vital to their adult development.

Over 260 million youngsters are not enrolled in school, and two-thirds of those are not able to read by the end of primary school. The Global Partnership for Education works with over 65 developing nation partners to reform education systems so that all children may attend and study in school regardless of economic position, gender, disability, or geography, may attend and study in school.

The Importance of School Education in Child Development

Orphans are often deprived of quality education, and children are the future of our society.

Life is about more than just living; it is also about learning. Our parents may teach us to some extent, but they are frequently unilateral. Children are exposed to a range of sources at school, from which they may obtain extensive information that may benefit their development. As a result, education is essential for children to learn the complexities of life.” Education is the foundation of any civilisation. It is in charge of the entire economic, social, and political development of society. The quality of education offered determines the thread of societal advancement. As a result, schools play an important role in defining a country’s destiny by supporting the general development of its future population.

It is widely known that the learning process plays a significant part in shaping a person’s personality and how he or she responds to life’s obstacles. The shift in thinking in schools from bookish knowledge to living knowledge has resulted in a sea of change. People have come around to the idea that education is the route to a well-rounded development rather than just a way to gain degrees and financial success in life. Education must promote the development of a healthy mental process as well as the growth of cognitive abilities. In today’s competitive world, education, food, clothes, and shelter are basic human requirements.

Street children are among the most excluded members of society. They live on cruel, unfeeling streets, which are unfit for anyone, let alone children.

Providing quality education to street children can transform their lives and provide them with new skills.

The four basic child rights conferred by the Charter that is being violated on city streets are as follows:

1) Education

A street-survivor child is sharp and curious, eager to learn, and eager to move on to a better life. The challenge is to direct this burst of energy and sharp intelligence in a constructive direction, away from the snares of crime and drugs. With this perspective, an inclusive multi-layered educational system that constructively encourages free will has evolved over the last 25 years. This system has enabled each child to traverse her/his journey, blossom into distinct personalities, and carve a niche for themselves.

2) Realising Inclusiveness

Children come from all over the country (and some even from abroad). They bring with them a wealth of social, cultural, economic, and emotional experiences. The majority of them are first-generation students. Most importantly, they either have no experience with education or have had a negative experience in which they were bullied and excluded. “There could be a number of emotional and mental issues with the child that is interfering with his or her learning abilities.

3) Holistic Approach

Various camps, trips, and cultural activities can be organised over the years in accordance with this philosophy. These events were more than just an educational experience that aided the children’s overall development. For example, there can be educational tours to the zoo which will be organised for children. The yearly trip, various trips to museums, art galleries, exhibitions, performances, and summer camps can be important avenues for the children to gain new experiences while also exploring their talents and aptitudes.

4) Skill Building

Vocational training is crucial in assisting youngsters in integrating into mainstream society. A career counsellor can choose a vocational training course for a child based on the child’s interests and a realistic assessment of his or her abilities. The child’s skill and ability are carefully matched with the training course he or she chooses.

Education is for everyone

Homeless children are often spotted on the streets, doing odd jobs for their living and neglected by a large part of our society. However, if they are supported with proper educational guidance, they can also have a bright future. The orphanage project  – Cocoon in Cannan initiated by the Mayur Ramgir foundation aims to provide quality education, love, and a bright future to orphans.
