Even though most of the children connected with Jeevantirth are non-Christians, they eagerly wait for Christmas every year. This is because Christmas is one of Jeevantirth’s annual maha-programs. This year’s program, held at Baba Saheb Ambedkar open air theatre in Ranip, needed a month long planning. It was a month of celebration and oneness in [...]

Michigan University’s Global Scholars at Jeevantirth – 2016

By | July 9th, 2016|Blog Post, Lok Seva Kendra, Special Programs|0 Comments

Backgound: Despite many organizations being run for the sole purpose of the betterment of marginalized communities right in our own city, most of the people are unaware of the situations and difficulties the minorities endure. Even though literature is being distributed to spread awareness it doesn’t really ignite the spark in the general public to work for a change. It is the firsthand experience of their hard living situations that makes one think and act in that direction. The largest slum of Ahmedabad, Ramapir no Tekro, houses more than 7000 females who wipe the city clean every night, walking kilometers on end, picking up the filth strewn across Ahmedabad. If it was not for these ladies, Ahmedabad would have been a pile of garbage within weeks and the municipality would have had a hard time. For such a noble cause these women are being paid less than laborers, their children struggle with finding education, and health and hygiene are a second priority as struggling for survival takes up their days! There is much more that needs to be told about them. To experience this firsthand, 10 students from University of Michigan used ten days of their summer holidays going to the slums of Ahmedabad and listening to what the people had to say. […]

Jeevantirth team and its volunteers work throughout the year on their urban initiative, knowing and solving the issues of city slum dwellers. Every year we also make sure to connect with a few villages for a period of 10 days; this is done by Jeevantirth’s staff and volunteers. This keeps us connected to our roots and also introduces us to the difference between cities and villages, the differences in concerns. This helps us prepare the future programs bearing in mind both the cities and villages. […]

Reading Room – 2016

By | March 8th, 2016|Blog Post, Lok Seva Kendra|0 Comments

07-03-2016 The 10th and 12th standard board exams weigh too much upon the school children because of the enormous importance these exams are given. Ramapir no Tekro, the largest slum of Ahmedabad, is like any other slum where houses are closely packed in clusters and lanes are as narrow as they can get. Moreover the houses are as small as 10 feet by 10 feet; with the whole family in such a small house noise is inevitable. For a student preparing for his boards such an environment wouldn’t help but rather create more frustration. […]
