    including tailoring pants shirt blouse for sari salwar kameez and industrial furniture driving beautician basic computers computer tally secretarial training handicrafts and decoration electric wiring auto mechanic police training mobile phone repairing videography photography machinist motor rewinding metal fabrication and welding A recent study determined that in comparison to vocational training centers run by the government many of which have courses that stretch as long as two years graduates of DSK have a higher rate of job placement Below please find information on the impact DSK has made as well as some of the challenges it has faced Impact Students take DSK s message of equality back to their homes and communities More and more students are coming to DSK because they see the success of their friends who have come to DSK It has reached the point that students for some courses have to be turned away because there is not enough space for them even though we have increased capacity for example from 15 students to 45 in the computer course More female students are attending DSK the 50 mark has been achieved and a reduction in gender bias can therefore be seen More parents are now pushing for their daughters to come because they are seeing positive changes in their daughters They are less afraid to send their daughters because they see that they come back with more maturity Students come from more sectors of society including Muslims OBC and Tribals About twice a month visitors from other organizations who want to emulate DSK and use it as a successful model visit the campus Industries of the private sector who want affirmative action instead of reservation have been approaching DSK to help absorb students as employees TATA Ambuja Cement etc Employability of students about 50 plus of

  • Navsarjan Schools — Welcome to Navsarjan
    the level of education of Dalits is very low and child marriage is still practiced The schools serve hundreds of students and employ teachers from the local community trained by Navsarjan Each school uses Ecosan systems for its water and toilet needs The areas around the Katariya Rayka and Sami schools are rife with discrimination The Navsarjan primary schools give Dalit children a shot at a real education that they otherwise would not have About half of the students who come to the primary schools in 5 th standard cannot properly read or write even after five years of government schooling Though this gap presents a challenge to the teachers as there is a large difference in educational level within one class after a few months at the schools nearly all students can read and write and they catch up quickly The core of the schools identity is equality both in terms of caste and gender Unity is emphasized instead of division and there is no activity that boys do that girls are not also encouraged to do In addition to emphasizing Dalit unity and total gender equality the schools provide a quality education to children who would otherwise either be enrolled in poor quality government schools or have dropped out many of the students come from schools in which they experienced discrimination for being Dalits The long term goals for setting up model schools by Navsarjan are After 10 years the children will become the leaders of the Dalit movement The children will not feel that they were born as a lower caste The girl children will demand higher education from their parents instead of getting married at a young age The boy children will not feel embarrassed to do tasks like sweeping washing clothes preparing chapatti Indian bread
