Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited (FGII) has extended its support to 'Muktashala'- a residential facility to restore the educational rights of 80 tribal children of migrant workers at Mahad in Raigad district of Maharashtra. The initiative of the facility is aimed to emphasise and uplift the society through constructing and supporting sustainable solutions for the key issues related to education, health and environment.
In a Muktashala, the resident children are provided with nutritious food, qualified teachers, uniforms and educational materials, computers and medicinal support. Also to promote high-esteem among the children, they have been provided with sports materials and other resources supporting their extra-curricular and recreational activities.
“No child should be deprived of his/her fundamental right to access quality education. Education is the gateway to successful and stable life which will eventually bring prosperity to the country as well,” said KG Krishnamoorthy Rao, MD & CEO, Future Generali India.
On the day of the inauguration, the children presented a folk music and dance performance with great zeal and zest. Also a drawing competition on the topic of ‘Importance of Sanitation’ was organised in order to educate children on the benefits of living in hygienic conditions.
“In such societies/groups, it’s the child who learns and educates elders on sanitation. The competition was designed to convey a message on the importance and benefits of sanitation. This will help children know the ways and means of clean sanitation for a better living from an early age and eventually live in a cleaner society,” said Easwara Narayanan, COO, Future Generali India.
It is essential to empower the children to break the vicious circle of poverty and contribute constructively in nation building. The Muktashala will aid in sustaining formal education in a seemingly impossible case of tribal migrants, serving as a great benefit for the children who would otherwise have dropped out of their schools due to migration. This aims to secure minimum 55% increase in access to quality education along with an estimated 80% increase in the learning levels of these children.
