Every year LIFE Trust organises the School Chalo Rally with the objective to encourage all the children to go to school and to create Community Awareness for children and parents on the importance of education.
The Rally covers a distance of approx. 2-3 kms in the area around the MCGM school. There are around 300 to 400 participants in the rally. The participants in the rally are:
- LIFE Trust Staff
- ICDS Teachers
- ICDS Supervisors
- Adolescent girls from the Anganwadis
- Children from the area / school
The rally with children and elders raising slogans with placards and banners in hands is aimed at both new enrolments and drop out kids.
The participants distribute pamphlets and go door to door and encourage parents to enrol their children for the coming academic year in MCGM schools. The rally ends at the school premises with the participants taking the oath to send their children to school. This initiative from LIFE Trust has seen rise in enrolments in MCGM schools.
