Udaan Women’s Forum in collaboration with the Community Oriented Cell of Dr. N.S.A.M. First Grade College organized a program on 04 Oct 2019 to create and build awareness about women’s education among the villagers of Mylappanahalli, North Bangalore.
Students met the villagers at their home and impressed upon them the need and importance for providing education to women. The main purpose of this study was to make sure that the villagersunderstood the importance of education, especially of women, and take steps to ensure that at least all the girls of the village attended schools. The II year B. Com students participated in the event and put great efforts to make it successful.
The visit made students understand that there is a large scope for women’s education in the villages and they were generally reluctant to provide education facilities to women. But, of late, there is a realization that this will not work in the future and at least the younger ones must get educated failing which there is little hope. They have understood that education is a great asset and are willing to spend time and money to obtain it.
Our students went around the village visiting the various families and impressing upon them that an educated woman passes on her knowledge to her children, thereby acting like a school, all by herself.
