Education plays the most vital role in economic growth and the social development process. It influences to bring change in the reality, motivation for entitlements, and promoting welfare activities. Where the system of education is better, the situation of the place is automatically improved in every aspect. In areas of poor education, the people remain in ignorance and poverty. They were forced to migrate in search of wages for the maintenance of their livelihood. This situation is found in our operational area. So PARDA has taken its effort towards improvement of seasonal hostels and education scenarios among distress migrant children in our operational area.
TATA TRUSTs is only to provide basic education and enhancing the traditional skills by providing various technical knowledge. We have appointed 6 nos remedial teachers in six seasonal hostels for the smooth function of the hostels. In Nuapada block has been functioning 4 nos seasonal hostels and in Komna blocks 2 nos seasonal hostels. We have provided play materials, Novodoya books, and solar-based drinking water through Aquaguard. We also supported students for appearing in various types of examinations. We have enrolled 275 students in six seasonal hostels and supported them for appearing various examinations like Novodoya exams 85nos, Ekalabya exam 34 nos, Model School exam 72 nos, and in 4 nos of students have appeared exam for Sainik school in Bhubaneswar.
Awareness program for Seasonal hostels and safe labor flow
An awareness program is an effort by which we can aware and make people conscious of their rights and needs. Awareness program in seasonal hostels basically indicates that an education campaign for the betterment of the children belongs to the school. Through this program, we spread the essence of education for one’s life. How it is important and how we develop being an educated person. The program was held in 15 villages having 6 seasonal hostels through village meetings, banners, and campaigns.
The school management committee (SMC)
The school management committee (SMC) is a togetherness of teachers, students, and parents. We organized an SMC meeting for weaning to the committee for developing their school and student’s wellbeing. Through this, we are aware them there role and responsibility towards the schools and the students we make sure that daily classes should be taken and the students shall be provided through coaching by our additional remedial teachers.
Aqua guard initialization in seasonal hostels
When we talk about better education how we forget that for better education better environment and all the necessary types of equipment are important. In this, we can add water clean and safe water is very much important for a healthy person. In seasonal hostels, we saw the difficulty of drinking water so we install an aqua guard for the purification of water.
Play materials support the seasonal hostel
We also provide play materials for the students, because games are helping them to enhance their more power and it increases cooperation feeling.
Solar with for electrification in seasonal hostels.
When we talk about better education how we forget that for better education better environment and all the necessary equipment are important. We saw the hostels have electricity problems. So we provide the solar system through which they can get electricity and use the fan, light, and TV, etc in seasonal hostels.
Registration on Novadaya, modal school, and Eakalbaya School.
At the time of the campaign and remedial class started the students are not aware of the registration of Novadaya, modal school, and Ekalbaya schools. We collect their document and counseling parents and students. And did form fill-up of the students. Thus the students are able to appear in the examination and qualified and get a chance to enter this type of school.
In this, we exchange teachers of one school by another school. By this students are able to know about the different perspectives of learning. And teachers are able to get connected with different types of children by engaging this.
Monthly and weekly exam
We organized weekly and monthly exams in the seasonal hostels to analyze and to know how the students are developed through school learning. Also, we can estimate by that. What is the weakness of our learning process, after which we can rectify the school learning process.

Bhoi facilitated the training with the support of Mr. Debasish Patra.
He also discussed the following points with the participants such as
- Validation of migrants (seasonal hostels) i.e. more and more children should be encouraged to join the seasonal hostels and the parents are motivated for the same.
- Collection of short-term data which needs assessments in the seasonal hostels and the surrounding villages.
- The teachers are required to prepare a monthly village visit plan which will help them to cover the syllabus and help the students be in touch with their books.
- Village level meetings with parents for the finalization of location for the holiday period where children can come and attend classes conducted by the remedial teachers.
- The teachers can identify a potential village for water and agricultural development initiatives in the villages near to the seasonal hostels.
- The teachers should prepare TLMs as per the topics using local materials which will help the children get engaged and learn better.
Migration Children: Reducing migration in a phase-wise manner. Our intention is the prevention of migration; where possible, and to provide post-migration support to the children intercepted and other dependants of the migrants including livelihood support to the community in the target area.
Our organization has been addressing the migration issue for the last 5 years. We are planning to provide support for making available basic facilities like education, livelihood, drought coping mechanisms, migrants availing government welfare schemes/entitlements, etc.
PARDA has participated and even taken the lead role during the campaign and advocacy of the total literacy Program run by Government and non-government agencies since its inception. In a project sponsored by Action Aid; we had formed migration committees in 30 villages in Nuapada Block. We had also prepared an innovative idea of maintaining a ‘Red Register’ to keep a record of the migrants’ traffic. This was done with the help of the village-level migration committee. We have been continuing the follow-up activities since 2005; after the completion of the project period 2003-05. Since then the activity is going on. But, there was no such provision to retain the children for continuing their school education in their respective villages. But after launching the program by DPEP/SSA, PARDA Managed 5 Residential care centers retaining 223 children of seasonal migrants in the year 2006-07 and run 10 Residential care centers retaining 376 children of seasonal migrant parents in 2007-08 and Similarly the program during 2008-09 with support of America India Foundation on LAMP project is given below in the table. 393 and 518 children in 15 nos Residential Care centers in the year 2010-11. 5 remedial teaching centers for 102 migrant children in Nuapada district and monitoring and supervision the 45 residential care which was supported by SSA in the year.
PARDA; in tune with its nomenclature, believes that people have a right to a just and equal society. We are committed to making that right a reality for the people on the boarder lines of Indian society.
