Provides free and unique teaching in an open school
Black board, white chalk, lunch box, school bus, annual day, sports day, these words may make you feel overwhelmed and seem like a normal part of life. But it is rare for some class of society as many children miss schools due to some reasons and lose a beautiful moment of their lives. But there are some who do not allow these dreams to remain unfulfilled.
Teachers are the second parents of children who teach the important lessons of life to them. On teachers day, this is the story of Nitinbhai Prajapati, a teacher from Chikhodara near Anand, who sacrifices himself every day to teach the children of poor and slums for the last 15 years.
It is not at all wrong to say that the lamp of education of poor children is lit today because of teacher like Nitinbhai. He teaches any child in a way that enters their mind easily and he does all this so that the poor children are not deprived of education. The children of rich and middle class families go to good schools, but these are the children who have no one to teach them. Nitinbhai Prajapati has become an angel for such children.
Father of Nitinbhai Prajapati was also a teacher and he wanted his children to continue the education legacy.
Nitinbhai has fulfilled his father’s wish by starting a open footpath school that he has built himself. He is trying to give education reach each and everyone and make them a better citizen of tomorrow.
Nitinbhai is not a teacher in any government or private trust run school, That is why he does not get a single salary. Yet for the whole year he educate the deaf, dumb, blind and disabled children of poor and disadvantaged families in their open school on his own expense. He don’t have the required degree to become a teacher, but he developed his own way to teach the children so that they can easily understand and absorb by touch and feeling through the wonderful method. they have created.
Taking time out from his business, he imparts effective education to the underprivileged children of the society, with more creative and constructive approach than a salaried teacher. In the way he is also fulfilling his father’s wish.
Nitinbhai says, in order to ensure that poor children do not feel the burden of learning and they get instinctive and easy education, he experimented with innovative teaching of Gujarati, Hindi and English simultaneously through various fruits, vegetables, flash cards, charts and pictures of different shapes. The idea has yielded positive results and poor children are getting literacy in open school. He also play fun and forgotten games along with knowledge with the children two days a week. Not only this he also teach them the value of Indian culture.
Nitinbhai Prajapati, a native of Vagosana in Mansa taluka of Gandhinagar district and living in Chikhodara near Anand, educates more than 400 children from poor families of Patodpura, Ektanagar slum area and Gamotpura of Gamdi sub-district twice a week. He has been honored by many organizations for his noble work of social service. Surprisingly he do not accept donations for this work, but if a donor is found, the educational tools are given directly to the children. Nitinbhai also provides free English education to students of government schools and ITIs.
Nitinbhai, who runs the Global Language Center in Anand, says, “On his way from Chikhodara to Anand, I saw poor children digging in the ground and writing letters and he came up with the idea of teaching them and this education yajna started which is still going on today. At a time when online education is being imparted in schools due to the Corona epidemic, Nitinbhai is also running a service of educating poor children with social distance and taking precautionary safety rules.
Nitinbhai regularly gives snacks, chocolates, fruits to the children on his own after completing the class. The children of the poor and working class are waiting for Nitinbhai.
Chanakya said, “Teachers are never ordinary,”. If we want to evaluate this voluntary education service of Nitinbhai, it can be said that teachers are extraordinary.
